Item details

These beautiful Micro Double Horn 15mm carved mother of pearl shell crescent beads come as an earring pair of one of my most popular bead designs.

I have more stock of these on the way. Please convo me for an update.

They're carved both sides with a smooth curved surface, and are not drilled, though you'll find a drilled version in a separate listing.

They're predominantly white in colour, with good nacreous iridescence, and are also available in this size in bone and black horn as single beads, drilled and undrilled.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment.

AT A GLANCE

Thickness: Approx 3mm
Weight: Approx 1 gram per bead
Pieces per pack: 2
Colour: White or ivory
Material: Mother of pearl shell, also known as nacre, not drilled. Please note that this shell is "budidaya" - the Indonesian word for "cultivated", not wild harvested.
Shipping: This item will ship from Ubud, Bali, via Pos Indonesia registered mail with tracking, and you'll almost certainly have to sign for the package on delivery. I generally ship more quickly than the 3-5 days listed in my shipping profile.

BACK STORY
Mekepung or bull races are held in the west Bali regency of Jembrana from July to October each year.

Madurese migrants introduced the sport to celebrate the end of the rice harvest, and it has become a tourist attraction for one of the least visited regencies on the Island of the Gods.

While I'm not a fan of the use of animals for this type of sport and have never actually seen one of these events, the races are said to be thrilling contests between teams of two young water buffalo harnessed to a chariot.

The chariot is ridden by a jockey who holds onto the bulls' tails as they career down a 2km race course, kicking up dust and sweat.

The water buffalo used in these races are said to be treated with great care, and are fed elaborate diets containing "all sorts of wonderful potions and secret ingredients".

Most of the races happen outside the regency capital of Negara, next to a river estuary in the location of Parancak.
