Herd of Burgundy Elephants: Hand Carved Bone Beads, 24x26mm, 6 piecesWoman Shops World
Elephants are one of the oldest creatures on earth and thus, symbolize longevity, wisdom & strength. These pendants would make great components in intentional jewelry.
These majestic Burgundy Elephants are hand carved in India from cruelty free cow bone, then hand-dyed using natural dyes. They are vertically drilled through the body. They would be beautiful strung on leather, waxed linen, and other natural materials.
This listing is for 6 elephant beads.
They measure approximately 26mm height by 24mm width.
The hole measures approximately 1mm.
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.
