PINK SAFARI- Handmade Earrings with African Batik Bone and Pink Jasper

Each of the handmade African batik beads is hand-dyed with an organic eye design. The cream and coffee batik bone bead compliments the pink jasper roundel beads and copper bi-cone saucer bead and ear wire finishes.  The total length is 2 1/4”.
African bone beads come from Ghana, Africa.  The design on the black and white bone beads is created through a dying method known as "batik", which is a wax relief process.
One of the best-known varieties of bone beads is the Mudcloth Bone Batik from East Africa. Kenya in particular is a major producer of Batik Bone Beads. These beads are usually made from Cow or Water Buffalo bone that is first bleached and then patterned. Patterning is achieved by a special method where wax is used to apply a dye based on any one of a number of traditional geometric patterns.

PINK JASPER- Jasper was a favorite gem in the ancient world, and the name jasper can be traced back in Hebrew, Assyrian, Persian, Greek, and Latin.

COPPER- It is commonly known that copper is a conductor of energy.
