The yak is a long-haired animal found throughout the Himalayan region of south Central Asia, the Tibetan Plateau and as far north as Mongolia and Russia. All yak bones used in our jewelry are the leftover from the domestic population that died from natural causes. This is a Fair Trade item. Bone is used in practice because the more we contemplate death the more fruitful our life becomes. We begin to live life differently and accept that death is inevitable while the path to the end of this life is about service to others, loving all, and being happy (without the pursuit of happiness) in each moment.. through the supposed good and bad.
*These necklaces are NOT waterproof. Keep them away from water and sweat.
