The leather is approximately 5mm thick and the story beads are 5mm wide (inner diameter 10mm).
The bracelets are made to order, so please ensure you order the correct size as exchanges or adjustments will not be possible. The bracelet is not adjustable. Please measure your wrist bone and add a little for comfort (1.5-3cm is about right, depending on whether you like a snug or looser fit). You can use a piece of string or strip of paper to wrap around your wrist, and then measure that string with a ruler, or use a cloth tape measure.
Soft stitched Nappa or high qualilty fine Bolo leather with a stainless steel clasp.
The beads are handmade in sterling silver, the plating is Black Rhodium Gold and 9ct Gold.
(What is Black Rhodium? It is a very rare metal, which is more precious and valuable than yellow gold. It has a very distinctive gun metal look.)
Silver with a Gold or Black Rhodium plating has had a thin coating of the precious metal electroplated to the surface of solid silver, as this is a surface finish it can wear away over time. Rubbing can, of course, wear away plated or coated surfaces. Some substances in our daily lives can affect plating and cause silver to tarnish prematurely. Soap, water, hairspray, chlorine, perfume, food, latex, perspiration, even heat and the natural oils on our hands can cause tarnish and plating to wear.
You should always remove jewellery before showering or swimming as metals can react with shampoo, chemicals and chlorine. Never allow leather to get wet. Wet leather will stay damp inside and deteriorate from within, this will loosen the bond within the clasp and affect the strength and look of the leather.
As with all jewellery, straps, links and clasps can be opened, damaged or broken if not treated with care. Please check your jewellery carefully when you receive it and contact us within 7 days if it is delivered faulty or damaged.
Your jewellery is fully guaranteed for 6 months against faulty workmanship or materials - although this does not cover accidental damage, misuse or wear and tear. If you have a problem with plating within 3 month s of purchase we will re-plate free of charge, after this time we will charge a £20 re-plating fee.
This does not affect your statutory rights.
Your personalisation will be hand stamped, letter by letter, using individual hand held steel stamps and a very heavy hammer. Hand stamping takes time to complete and the end result is very different to machine aligned & engraved lettering (hurrah!) and that's why we do it; we want to achieve a look that is unique, quirky & clearly created by a human hand.
So, if you if you like perfect imperfection, hand stamped is for you!
However, if you like all your letters in a perfect line we do offer machine engraved items, but not this one; this one is just too special.
We even make the Story Beads by hand, one by one, to get the look just right. No machines (or robots) in sight! That's just how we like it.
