Navajo Ghost Beads - Cedar Berries with holes

Cedar berries are gathered by members of the Navajo and Ute Nations of southeastern Utah for the creation of ghost bead jewelry and crafts. The people are assisted by Ants, who nibble off one end of the berry and eat the meat. The craftspeople need only punch a hole in the other end to string berries on a cord with colorful beads. The harmony that results from the interconnection of earth, tree, animal and human is believed to ensure tranquility and keep evil spirits away from the wearer.

This batch I bought from a Navajo man in Arizona that his aunt collects the beads and puts the holes in herself.

Due to the nature of this product the beads range from 4mm-8mm+/- or so.
