A note about bone beads: In the Himalayas, it is typical for large animals such as yak or water buffalo to be used for service, food, clothing, and ritual items. Given the limited amount of resources and the religious practices of the people in the region, it is important that none of the animal goes to waste. These amazing bone beads are handcrafted by artisans who recycle and reuse everything in daily life and spiritual practice.
Necklace measures approximately 34 inches around when fully opened and can be tightened to desired length. Bone beads are about 10mm. Dzi bead is about 15mm.
