These durable pieces do not require a great deal of care. While the beads and closure are natural materials, the strings that they are beaded in are made of nylon, in the interest of durability. Given this, these pieces should not be exposed to extreme heat.
The noted price is for a single necklace in your choice of lighter or darker tones. Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and hues may vary slightly from the featured product image. The dried bean clasp varies with seasonal availability. If you would like to see photos of the pieces that we currently have in stock, please contact us for photos.
