bone beads

These handmade beads are bone, and some are individually dyed with henna using African motifs and geometric shapes.
The bone is a highly polished gloss, with a rich mellow ivory color, along with the deep chocolate of the henna.
Bone beads are a natural fit for ethnic-inspired projects. They are one of the oldest adornment materials ever used for durability, availability and canvas for carving.
