While Kenyan bone beads are common in a variety of shapes and styles, these beads come in a hard-to-find cylinder shape. East African bone beads are handcrafted by artisans using recycled cow bone. The lifestyle in the part of Kenya where the beads are produced is a pastoral lifestyle based around cattle herds. By utilizing the bones to create the beads, artisans are able to sustainably utilize the entire animal. Each bead is individually carved and polished, and is truly one of a kind.
