From the artisans of Nepal, these handmade mala beads are individually made from recycled yak bone. Each bead is hand-inlaid with brass, turquoise, and coral color bits. Strands measure approximately 21" in length. Beads measure approximately 6mm in diameter, with a hole size of 2mm. Please pay attention to strand length as it may be too short to wear as a necklace. Our 8mm and 10mm sizes work better as necklaces. Beautiful red bone beads for your beading arsenal, or to use as is!
