These beautiful Maasai dangle earrings were handmade out of cow bone. They are hand carved, polished and then batiked with the print shown. Its a tedious process to make batik print jewelry. First the dangle is hand carved from cow bone to the desired shape and size. Then the print is drawn and wax is applied to the parts that are not to get the dye. It is then dipped in the dye and, when dry, the wax is removed to reveal a batik print like the one on this earrings. We have a few of them so the one you will get might look slightly different. They were handmade in Kenya.
