These cream beads are such a soothing neutral color. These would be a perfect match with just about any design! They are a perfect size for using as spacer beads in bracelets and necklaces. Made in India from cow bone (for more information on the source of the bone, read below), each one is completely hand-made.
Bead Size: 10x3mm
Hole Size: 1.5mm
Approximate Number of beads: 65
Strand Length: 8"
Color: Cream/ Off-White
These have a nice slightly-larger hole on them (approximately 1.5mm), so they would work on a wide variety of leather, string or cord.
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.
