One of the first materials used to make beads were bones. Native Americans used the bones of the animals they killed to make jewelry for two reasons. Firstly, they believed it was wasteful to discard any part of the animal. Thus, they ate the meat, used the hides for clothing, and used the bones for tools and beads. Secondly, Native Americans believed that the souls of the animals still lived in the parts of the animal, so the wearer of the jewelry would have traits of that animal while wearing the beads, and the souls of the animals could live on. The bone beads were dyed with tea for color, thus creating dark beads and light beads for contrast.
Our Hair Pipe Bone Beads are made from Buffalo Bones.
