Hand cut when molten hot, (not poured into a mold) each bead was then hammered into shape. They are displayed next to my own bracelet, which I wore for months. It shows how the silver plating rubs away and the golden brass of the beads remains. No tarnish is seen on the beads and your skin. They stay golden forever. Wrap them several times around your wrist. Use them as necklace, or anklets too. There is a small red one and a smaller blue one to be used as bracelets, and they are $40 & $60. The rest of them will wrap about 3 times around a wrist and cost those $100.
