A cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in North America, traditionally on horseback, and often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks. Because of the time and physical ability needed to develop necessary skills, the cowboy often began his career as an adolescent, earning wages as soon as he had enough skill to be hired, (often as young as 12 or 13) and who, if not crippled by injury, might handle cattle or horses for the rest of his working life
The Cowboy Bead is handcrafted from 925 Sterling Silver and Bronze. Has a total weight of 27gr /approx 0.95oz . The hole is 6mm/ 0.25 inches which allows standard size paracord to be threaded easily. The cavity under the chin gives sufficient room for the lanyard knot to be tucked away neatly. The bead itself is hand made and the attention to detail is excellent.
