Bone pendant

My mother-in-law has given me this beauty.
It's a pendant made from raindeer bone.
Amazingly beautiful and gentle. This type of craft is typical for Sami (Lapland indigenous people), nomadic tribes who live in the north of Sweden, Norway and Finland. They have beeing herding raindeers for centuries, mainly for meat and skin.

Bones are used mainly for decoration.

Isn't it gorgeous?
