These beads are hand-carved cow-bone, made in India. They have a roses going around the outsides that are beautifully concentric and detailed. These will add great details to your designs. They have been slightly stained, so that the carved parts are a darker tan color, against the natural creamy white of the bone. They are a great rondelle shape.

These beads measure approximately 12x9mm, with some variation due to their handmade nature. The hole measures approximately 2mm. They are beautiful strung on leather, waxed linen, and other natural materials.

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.
