BEADS

CATTLE BONE FROM KENYA

MATERIAL:
CATTLE BONE & WOOD

Cattle bone is highly durable and its beads have been handed down from generation to generation. Handcrafted from bone, the beads are dyed using the batik method, of drawing wax designs on the bone, dipping the bone in colored dye, and removing the dried wax to expose interesting and creative patterns. The center of the bead often is a wooden peg that is dyed the same color as the bead.
