Bone Jewelry and horn jewelry:
Bone Jewelry: WATER BUFFALO BONE and HORN,
LATIN NAME: bubalus bubalis.
ORIGIN: South-East Asia
HARVESTING PRACTICE: The bone and horn we use is a by-product of meat production and farming practice.
OTHER DETAILS: Recycled. The water buffalo of South East Asia is a domesticated animal. It is used to plow fields and carry loads. They are well treated and important to the survival of the native people. When they are too old to work, they are eaten and all part of the animal are utilized. They are never taken in pursuit of the bones and horns!
About the horn earrings and jewelry:
Horn is very much like your hair or fingernails in nature, and requires care. The horn needs to be conditioned, and should be oiled to protect it
as we suggested earlier. This will maintain the color and preserve the smooth surface.
About the carved bone earrings and bone jewelry:
Try not to drop it, sit or step on it. The bone does not need to be conditioned, but may be oiled to protect your bone earrings as we suggest in the beginning of this page. This will cause the color to deepen into an ivory like-tone, not "bone white".
Woven Bead Bracelets:
Beaded Bracelets : May be hand-cleaned if needed with mild soap. Dry well.
SILVER, Our silver is traditionally sourced by industry standards. If you know an earth friendly source of fine raw silver, please let us know!
We are open to any documented information to supplement this information. If you have any suggestions, corrections or additions, please email them to us at: goods (at) OrganicEarrings.com with the word "materials" in the subject line.
