So I had these custom made and they are bamboo. The guy put burn patterns on the core of the ear plugs (0g) and on the outside of the dread beads. I told him to use his discretion, but I wanted the plugs to match and the beads to be different (they are about an inch long and have about 8mm holes inside them). Said I'd like a native type feel to them, but I trusted him as an artist to do better without much guidance. It paid off, I'm pleased! Picture came out a bit blurry but you get the idea.
