Bone Beads & Pendants

All of the beads, pendants, and jewelry on this page are crafted of bone. Bone and horn beads are one of the oldest adornment materials ever used as a canvas for carving. Bone beads are a great fit for nature-inspired projects and all of your earthy designs. Bone is known for its fabulous durability, pleasant feel, availability and ease of carving and dyeing. It has been crafted and carved into every shape imaginable. It is also lightweight, a good value and a wonderful alternative to ivory. Most of our bone now comes from Water Buffalo. Bone looks great when paired with other natural beads, such as wood, horn, shells, or gemstones.
