Item details

This Little Elephant Bead in Carved Bone is as sweet as it is petite. This listing is for one piece only.

I have more stock of them on the way. Please convo me for details.

Please note that the two shown in this photograph are not an earring pair, but I do stock earring pairs that are available on request. In the pairs, one little elephant has his trunk turned up to the left and the other one to the right.

If you are buying two beads, please put a note in the message to seller at checkout if you need them to be an earring pair.

The beads are hand-carved for me on the island of Bali, home of Indonesia's best carvers of bone, shell and horn.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment.

Size: Approx 15mm (L) x 8mm (W)
Thickness: Approx 10mm (from front to back, though I have to say it's variable because these are hand-carved.)
Hole: Approx 1.5mm in diameter
Pieces per pack: 1
Color: Off-white, ivory color, or sometime cream, depending on the bone that the beads were carved from. Naturally I do my best to colour match earring pairs.
Material: Bovine bone - cow bone. The bone used in Indounik products is from cattle, and is sourced from the neighbouring island of Java where it is a bi-product of the meat industry.
Shipping: This item will ship from Bali via Pos Indonesia registered mail with tracking. You'll almost certainly need to sign for the package on delivery. It will be well packaged to protect it, and the cost of the pack is included in the shipping fee.

In January 2012, the International Union for Conservation of Nature raised its listing of the Sumatran elephant sub-species from "endangered" to "critically endangered" and scientists warned the animal could be extinct in the wild in 30 years.

In the past 25 years, the Sumatran elephant has lost about 70 per cent of its habitat to illegal logging, palm oil plantations, and the conversion of forest to agriculture on this island at the far west of the vast Indonesian archipelago.

You can learn more about the Sumatran elephant and what you can do to help at the World Wildlife Fund's website here -

Meanwhile, in the eastern part of Indonesia, one of Bali's top tourist destinations is the Elephant Safari Park at Taro.

In October 2010, the park won the CIPTA Award, the first of its kind in Indonesia, for the best management of an environmentally friendly tourist attraction in Indonesia.
