Black and white is always a striking combo, whether you mix it with neutrals or colors! These striped beads are handmade from bone and would make wonderful additions to your tribal or bohemian inspired designs! They are hand carved, batiked and stained black using a resist.
These have a nice, slightly larger hole on them (approximately 2mm), so they would work great on smaller leather cord or hemp twine.
Bead Size: 8x6mm
Hole Size: 1.5+mm
Approximate Number of beads: 30
Strand Length: 8"

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.
As many of my products come from Nepal, a portion of my proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross Nepal Earthquake Relief.
