Item details

This Darling Bird carved bone bead is sweet, petite, and sure to wing its way into your heart.

A simple design, and quite textured, it joins the little elephant, bat, owl, bunny, and zen frog in my miniature menagerie bead collection.

The 1.5mm hole runs from the bird's back out through the feet (as seen in my fourth photo).

Please scroll through my photos to the final one to get a better idea of the size of this 20mm bead.

Please note that the beads in this batch are a little fatter and flatter than shown in my photos.

You won't find this lovely little bead anywhere else because it's exclusive to Indounik, as are many of the designs featured here in my Etsy shop.

Please note that this listing is for one piece only. If you are purchasing two beads and need them to be an earring pair, please write "earring pair" in the message to seller field at checkout.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment. Don't have it? You can still pay that way using your credit card. Just click on the PayPal icon at checkout and follow the prompts.

AT A GLANCE

Thickness: Approx 9mm
Weight: Approx 2 grams
Pieces per pack: 1
Colour: White, ivory or cream depending on the bone used to make the piece.
Material: Bovine bone - cow bone - drilled with a 1mm hole. The bone used in Indounik products is sourced from the neighbouring Indonesia island of Java where it's a bi-product of the meat industry.
Shipping: This item will be shipped from Bali, Indonesia, via registered post with a tracking number, and you will almost certainly need to sign for it upon delivery. It will be well packaged to protect it, and the cost of the pack is included in the shipping fee. I generally ship more quickly than the 3-5 days listed in my shipping profile.

BACK STORY
If you love our feathered friends then you might like to visit or even volunteer on Nusa Penida, an small island just off Bali that's been transformed into a bird sanctuary that is pivotal in saving the critically endangered Bali Starling.

The sanctuary is run by the Balinese non-profit Friends of National Parks Foundation which also runs the Bali Wildlife Rescue Center in Tabanan, and works to preserve wildlife habitat in Kalimantan, Borneo.

You can also visit the Bali Bird Park, home to one of the world's finest collections of Indonesian birds.

The park is set in two hectares of landscaped botanical gardens, including more than 2000 tropical plants.

The Park plays a key role in protecting and conserving Indonesia’s endangered birdlife, including the Bali starling.
