Yakbone beads from Nepal


Juanita Tortilla surprised me by sending me some beads for my birthday from her travels to Nepal. 
 They are made from the bones of a Yak.  



I've combined them with other beads made of natural sources eg. wool, nuts, resin, seeds, wood etc into a 
long necklace that can be worn once or twice twisted around the neck. 




She also sended me a skein of Yak wool ! Handdyed in Nepal. 
And in my favorite green ... of course :-)
