Vegan Leather Red Bracelet with Tibetan, Focal Beads
Jewelry that's not only beautiful but environmentally friendly! I love working with vegan leather (Portuguese Cork), not only does it come in such beautiful colours but it is soft and light weight. It feels good in your hands and on your wrist! It's called vegan leather because it looks like leather and is as durable but no animal was harmed in the making of this material. It's live-harvested from the cork tree with no harm to the tree itself, a fully sustainable product (more info on this below). This bracelet features two silver tibetan beads paired with a silver bead or hand crafted glass focal bead (your choice) on a rich red vegan leather bracelet with a magnet clasp closure. When ordering, the sizing corresponds with your loosely measured wrist for a snug fit. If you would like a looser fitting bracelet order a half inch larger size. Currently we only have three sizes available (the bracelets in the pictures are the ones you will receive).
Vegan Leather (Portuguese Cork)
Vegan leather (Cork) is becoming one of the most desirable materials used for products and accessories in line with leather. Its softness, high quality efficient properties as well as its vegan origin makes it a trend for today’s jewelry.
Cork is an eco friendly product that’s 100% natural. Extracted from the bark of the cork oak it is: waterproof, wear-resistant, recyclable, biodegradable, does not absorb dust (thus hypoallergenic).
The Bark is harvested from the tree every 9-12 years. Completely renewable and sustainable, harvesting bark does not harm the tree. Each time cork is harvested; the cork bark regenerates itself (and in doing so absorbs CO2). In fact, cork trees live between 100 and 300 years.

Do you have any jewelry care tips?
All silver, gold and brass will oxidize. You will receive an anti tarnish strip with your jewelry purchase. Storing your jewelry in a plastic bag together with this strip, will help slow the oxidation process. Natural body oils and sweat will also tarnish the jewelry’s plating so wipe down your jewelry each time it is worn. All jewelry should be removed before showering, swimming or exercising and kept in a clean, dry place when not in use. Do not store jewelry in or near oak wood. Do not wear perfume on areas of skin that will come in contact with jewelry. Jewelry should be properly and regularly cleaned in order for it to last longer.
How do I care for my Sterling silver jewelry?
Sterling silver jewellery naturally takes on a blackish tarnish over time in reaction with air. When you receive your piece of sterling jewellery it may have black tarnish spots - these are easily removed! You can either buy a silver-cleaning cloth, or simply use some toothpaste on a cloth or brush - gently rub at the tarnish, then wash and dry to bring back the shine!
