Handcrafted in Kathmandu, Nepal, these beads are made from Yak Bone. Traditionally used as prayer beads, some of these bone beads have been inlaid with brass and copper bands, and others are inlaid with chips of Turquoise and Coral. They are perfect for making yoga-inspired jewelry, malas, bracelets, and bohemian-style jewelry.
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.
