Our snake vertebrae beads originate in rural Africa. The snakes are consumed as food and their vertebrae are then used in divination rituals. It is believed the beads represent the bones of their ancestors. They are NOT harvested merely for fashion. We strive to respect the origin of our Long Snake Vertebrae Necklace, by breathing new life into something that might otherwise be discarded or forgotten.
