These beads have such a beautiful swirled pattern on them, that comes from the natural Yak Horn. Handcrafted in Kathmandu, Nepal, these beads are made from yak horn. These are really unusual beads and I am so excited to share them with you.
These have a nice large hole on them too, so they are perfect for stringing on leather and other cords. And they are very lightweight too. They are perfect for making yoga-inspired jewelry, malas, bracelets, and bohemian-style jewelry. This is a great size for bracelets and necklaces.
This listing is for 10 loose beads.
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.
