These hand-carved cow bone beads come from Kenya in east Africa. To decorate the surface, artisans create the pattern using a "batik" process. This involves painting a pattern on the surface of a plain bead with a wax-like substance. When the beads are subsequently immersed in dye, the pigment darkens the bare surfaces and leaves the wax-coated areas a natural bone color.

These beads will easily accommodate 2mm or even thicker leather cord. Their distinctive shape makes them a great choice for centerpieces. Combine them with other bone beads, wood, African metals or recycled glass.

Handmade beads like these help make jewelry unique because each one varies slightly in shape, size, and design.

Strand measures approximately 26" and contains approximately 35+ beads.
