This traditional Tibetan style is in high fashion demand right now. This horn shaped pendant is not made of horn, but water buffalo bone from Nepal. Every part of these animals are recycled and bone jewelry is traditional in Nepal and Tibet.
A note about bone: Tibetan nomadic life is hard, and in the cold there is little to eat. Water buffalo is a main staple in Nepal and Tibet and when an animal is used for food nothing is wasted. These amazing bone pieces are hand inlaid by artisans who recycle and reuse everything in daily life and spiritual practice.
Strung on a silver plated 24″ chain suitable for men or women.
