Wonderful hand carved bone turtle beads. The 25mm beads are 3D and intricately carved turtles with two holes drilled through them. For the Chinese, the tortoise is sacred and symbolizes longevity, power, and tenacity. They have large holes (2mm), which will work well with leather or cords. They have a dyed brownish finish which accentuates the carvings. Beautiful focal beads that will add a BOHO touch to your jewelry or crafting projects.
