These cow bone Maasai dangle earrings were hand carved, polished and then batiked with a mud cloth print design. It is a tedious process to make batik print earrings. 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 these earrings. We have a few of these cow bone earrings, so the one you will get might look slightly different. They were handmade in Kenya.
