These maroon saucer bone spacer beads are such a beautiful rich shade of red. They are a perfect size for using as spacer beads in bracelets and necklaces. These would make fantastic additions to your bohemian jewelry or mala designs. Made in India, from cow bone (cruelty-free), each one is completely hand-made.

These have a nice slightly-larger hole on them (approximately 1.5mm), so they would work on smaller cord or twine, and are perfect for using on 1mm elastic for stretch bracelets.
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 Unicef and Americares Nepali relief efforts. **
