If you open the above URL you will notice that the seeds are very similar, yet edible. The reason I found it was my curiosity. I remember when I lived in Indonesia, there was a big tree in front of the house where I lived, and I often found and collected the pretty seeds. I remember it was a big tree, not a vine where I found those beads. I did not remember the name of the seeds. I searched and found the name and then search for 'pohon' which is tree in Indonesian. And I found it! I still remember it correctly.

see all the different kinds of red beads:

The Internet is wonderful. I would not have been able to find all these without it.

What a fascinating link! I'd never heard of many of those seeds used in jewelry, and many do look surprisingly similar to the jequirity bean. Thanks for sharing it!
