Handcrafted in Kathmandu, Nepal, these beads are made from Yak Bone. Traditionally used as prayer beads, some of these bone beads have been inlaid with brass and copper bands, and others are inlaid with chips of Turquoise and Coral. They are perfect for making yoga-inspired jewelry, malas, bracelets, and bohemian-style jewelry.
Each bead measures approximately 8mm, and the holes are 2mm.
This listing is for 10 loose beads; there may be more turquoise/red than ones with brass, as each strand has more of the turquoise and coral.
**As many of my products come from Nepal, a portion of my proceeds will be donated to the Unicef and Americares Nepali relief efforts. **
