These beads are hand-carved cow-bone, made in India. They have an diamond argyle pattern going around the outsides that is beautifully detailed. There are drilled holes throughout the beads at the intersections of the patterns. These will add great details to your designs.
These holes go all the way through to the center, so there are lots of stringing possibilities with these. They have been slightly stained, so that the carved parts are a darker tan color, against the natural creamy white of the bone. They are a great rondelle shape.
These beads measure approximately 12x15mm, with some variation due to their handmade nature.
The hole measures approximately 2mm.
They are beautiful strung on leather, waxed linen, and other natural materials.
This listing is for 6 beads.
