Established by NJ native Allison Snedikeri 2011 as a brand reflective of her love for the art of handcrafting, history and culture. Each Banjo and Bone item has been designed and handcrafted by Allison, using combinations of worldly and recycled materials (ex: Sandalwood beads she picked up on a trip to Tibet and vintage 1970’s brass chains). The name is derived from her Hound dog, Banjo and his bone.
