These beautiful, red rondelle watermelon bone beads are made in India, from cow bone that have been stained red and then painted with black lines around the white line. The white lines were created by using resist.
These have a nice slightly-larger hole on them (approximately 1.5mm), 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.
