These are large, handcrafted African batik bone beads. The striking pattern is created using the traditional method of applying wax to hot bone beads and brown dye that will not penetrate the wax. The round beads are Himalayan yak bone which are capped with solid brass. Green shell heishi from the Philippines are 20mm in diameter, a bit smaller than a quarter. Rugged solid brass lobster clasp. The necklace is 18 inches and sits at choker to collar length. We make all of our jewelry by hand in our studio. Every piece is fabricated to a very high standard for strength and workmanship.
