If bright and happy is your thing, you'll LOVE these beads. They are made from cow bone that has been dyed a cheerful soiree of colors.

These beads are strung into loop, the way bone beads are traditionally strung in India. Cut them apart and make some happy magic of your own or take advantage of the metal clasp to wear them as/is.

Curious to know about the source of the bone?

In India and Nepal, not much is wasted. So instead of just eating the meat of an animal, every part of the animal is used: bones for things like beads, hides/hair for clothing and accessories and talismans, and the meat is consumed.

The making of these beads and pendants provides a livelihood for families in remote villages in Nepal and India, which we are honored to support and share with you.

A portion of all WSW sales will be donated to The Compassion Collective, which works to feed, clothe, shelter, and save our refugee and homeless sisters, brothers, and children in the US and worldwide.
