These beautiful natural brown beads have such a rustic feel to them, and a lively hand-carved line and taget pattern on them. Made in India, from cow bone that has been stained a natural brown color.

These have a nice slightly-larger hole on them (approximately 1mm), so they would work on smaller cord or twine.

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.
