Details: In various sizes and colors. 3D printing allows the rings to be manufactured with the beads enclosed, no assembly required. KXX/caxixi is pronounced kah-shi-shi in Brazilian Portuguese. The caxixi instrument is a closed basket with a flat bottom, usually made from dried gourd, and seeds or other small objects inside.
