9mm Yak Bone Beads


Handmade yak bone beads from the Himalayas. These beads are batiked with the symbol Om which is the 'sound of creation' that unifies us all. Strung on silk cord with a macramed knot which makes this bracelet adjustable to fit many.

The yak is a highly prized and beneficial part of the nomadic culture in Tibet. Yak bone jewelry is only made when a Yak dies from natural causes. This is thought to help maintain the spiritual virtue of an animal that provides for its people, even in death. Yak bone jewelry is worn as a reminder that life is impermanent and to cherish it fully. In the Tibetan culture, the people depend on the strength of the yak and use it for transportation, clothing, food and farming. It is a highly cherished addition to the Tibetan people and they value the gifts that it provides in life and death. We help support Nepali and Tibetan craftsmen by purchasing their handmade traditional wares.
