this tibetan buddhist prayer beads bracelet consists of 18 green sandalwood beads (plus the guru bead) strung on elastic cord. the prayer beads are alternatively carved with buddha in meditation and chinese buddhist character “fo” in a lotus – the meaning of “buddha”.
wood and water do not mix well! all our wooden jewelry is untreated and does not have any kind of chemical coating to finish it off.
therefore, never swim with, shower with, fully submerge your jewelry into water or expose it to extreme rains.
most importantly, please never let a baby or young child put your wooden jewelry in their mouth- wood is a porous material, and if you handle it with dirty hands, germs can possibly harbor on the surface of it.
