Fish Vertebrae Bone Beads from Africa, Approx 5x3mm, Bleached White Craft or Jewelry Making Supply, Ethnic Bone Beads, 44" Strand, 300+ pcs.
Very cool beads, made from the vertebrae of a fish. These have a great look and feel to them; you can tell that they are organic matter, but you aren't quite sure what they are until closer inspection. Concave ends, and holes around the sides, they have beautiful architecture. These beads are made in Africa, and the bones have been bleached so they do not smell.
There is some variation is size due the handmade nature of these beads, but they are approximately 5x3.5mm.
This listing is for one 40 +/-" strand, with approximately 300 beads, but this will vary from strand to strand.
Ethically sourced: the fish were consumed, the bones are turned into beads and jewelry. Nothing is wasted.
