One of Astali's signature pieces, this exotic bracelet is made from authentic African Snake Vertebrae, strung on brown leather cord, and finished with a brass lobster clasp. Equally stunning on men or women. Color ranges in shades of tan to dark brown. The 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. Astali strives to respect their origin by breathing new life into something that might otherwise be discarded.
