These are hand carved bone beads from Kenya. The bone beads were salvaged after meat production as a way of not producing waste. It is an age old practice in the region. Do you know someone who likes beading or being creative? This might be the perfect gift for them. These beads were purchased in Mombasa. They are lightweight, a mix of black, brown and white shades plus they add that global look to any creative project. They can be stuck on, sewn on or strung. Measurements: 1" wide (five beads are included in every order)
