Cow Bone Batik Pendant Necklace
Get this vibrant handmade necklace from Kenya/East Africa! It's made of tube beads and pendants hand carved out of cow bone. The bone beads are batiked with a mud cloth print. Its a tedious process to make these batik mud cloth print. First the beads are hand carved from cow bone to the desired shapes and sizes. Then the print is drawn, wax is applied to the parts that are not to get the dye. Its is then dipped in the dye and after its dried the wax is removed to result in a mud cloth batik print like the one on these beads. We have a few of this necklace and they are handmade so the one you will get might be slightly different.
