The Agira necklace that is featured here is hand carved from yak bone in the Himalayan mountains by a community of Tibetan refugee women. The yak is a sacred animal for the Tibetans due to its lifelong service. Upon its passing, the yak is honored by making prayer beads to remind us to always live in service of other human beings.
