Bones are the rigid skeletal parts that form the framework that supports the bodies of vertebrates. Bone has been used in the creation of jewelry since the time that humans began to adorn themselves. Easily carved, bone has been fashioned into beads, buttons, rings, hair ornaments, seals and all manner of decorative objects. Bone can also be used to imitate ivory.
