Bone beads are typically made with either cow, sheep, or camel bone from Indonesia. Bone is mostly composed of calcium phosphate and gelatinous protein compounds, and bone makes a great bead because it is easy to transform into a workable material.
These bone beads have been carved to have a simple and clean barrel shape with pale ivory coloring and accents of darker ivory encircling the bead. These beads would make great accent beads for natural designs as they are light and easy to wear.
Bone is believed to have a strong connection to earth energy, and is believed to be grounding. Bone beads have had symbolic meanings throughout different cultures in history that have centered around rituals, spirits, and Gods depending on the culture.
