Handmade, simply stated, with a large black clay bead.
"The clay bead-making process takes a long time and can only take place during the sunny season. After the clay beads are shaped, they are placed outside for four to five weeks to dry. The beads are then baked, which turns them black. After the baking process, varnish is applied to make the beads shiny." from Lila Products
