Telling the story – Ebony

Ebony is a dense hard wood, native to India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Western Africa, with an ancient history dating back to Egyptian tombs.You may be familiar with it in black chess set pieces and animal carvings. I bought the beads I have used here about 30 years ago! Worn now by gallery owner Annie Bowie and available on this site while there are still a few beads left.
