Using a wax-resist process of dying called “batik”, Kenyan artisans reclaim cow bone and transform it into something beautiful. After carving the bone, the craftsmen use wax to create a unique design. The parts of the bone that are without wax soak in the dye. When the wax is removed a wonderful 2-toned pattern remains. The bone pieces are turned into beads used to create a lovely African bone necklace.

The African bone necklace you purchase may vary slightly in pattern, size, and color from the images you see on our website. Because each bone necklace for sale online is handmade--possibly even by different artisans-- no two necklaces are exactly alike.
