Item details

~~~ PEACE SILK TASSELS || HANDMADE on VANCOUVER ISLAND, CANADA ~~~

These elegant tassels are beautiful embellishments for your handmade designs.

Often used on malas and mala-inspired jewelry, these tassels are unique for their use of Peace Silk.

Peace Silk is unique because it is made from silk strands that have been ethically sourced. This ethical sourcing comes from how the silk farmer gets access to the silk strands. You see, silk comes from the cocoon made by a silk worm.

Traditional methods (the most common method) of acquiring the cocoon mean that the cocoon is placed in boiling water with the silk worm still inside so that the thread can soften and a continuous strand of silk can be extracted.

Peace Silk is made from cocoons where the moth (the matured silk worm) has already emerged from the cocoon, hence why it is a more humane method of producing silk threading. The key difference between traditional silk and Peace Silk threads is this: traditional silk produces a continuous strand of silk (smoother and shinier) whereas the shorter threads of the Peace Silk are woven into a continuous strand (a more raw feel).

We personally love the organic texture of the Peace Silk and we believe that the intention behind is processing is more aligned with our company's values.

************************************************************************************
Each tassel comes wrapped in tissue to reduce the likelihood of tangling.

Size: approx. 3" long (from top to bottom)

Materials:
- Peace Silk (Ahimsa) - natural, undyed
- Coloured thread
- Metallic thread

* In the variations, the first word is the "coloured thread" and the second word is the "metallic thread". We currently use two colours of metallic thread:
1. Gold
2. Mix = a variegated metallic thread that phases from gold to purple to blue

FAQs

We do bespoke orders! Send us a message and we'll get back to you with details. * Custom/bespoke/personalized orders are a final sale (no refunds or exchanges).

If, under "normal wear and tear"*, your mala necklace or bracelet breaks within the first 14 days of receiving it then you can mail it back to us and we will restring it for free. Return shipping is paid by the customer. Customers must first contact us via Etsy Conversation with a photo of the broken mala so that we can discuss the process. For example, since our malas are OOAK if there are missing beads then we may need to supplement a different bead for the missing one. We sincerely wish for all of our clients to be satisfied with their purchase. * "normal wear and tear" means that you have followed our care instructions and the mala still ends up breaking.

If your mala bracelet breaks after the first 14 days of receiving it then you can mail it back to us and we will restring it for $75CAD. Return shipping is paid by the customer. Please contact us via Etsy Conversation so that we can discuss your needs. For example, since our products are OOAK if there are missing beads then we may need to supplement a different bead for the missing one and/or we may need to charge a product fee for some or all of the replacements. We sincerely wish for all of our clients to be satisfied with their purchase.

Malas and other divine jewels are made up of tiny beads that can be a choking hazard. Please do not place the beads in your mouth. Please do not let small children wear your Parvanah Collective mala or divine jewels as they could pose as a choking and strangulation hazard.

Guidelines for maintaining your new mala or jewelry (your ‘piece’) from Parvanah Collective*. ~ Please be gentle and treat your piece with love and kindness. Hard tugs and rough wear may cause the cord or chain to break. ~ Think of your piece as a finishing touch. Apply any lotions, perfumes, or hair products first. ~ Remove your piece before getting wet. Showering, bathing, swimming and the like can weaken the cord and knotting or more quickly tarnish precious metals. ~ Remove your piece before doing any form of exercise (this includes during your yoga practice) and before sleeping. ~ Clean your gems by gently wiping them with a slightly damp cloth. ~ Rotate the wearing of your piece. ~ Store your piece in the bag or box provided.

There are different techniques for caring for sterling silver, gold-fill, and copper. Since space on an Etsy store is limited, we have detailed our instructions on our website. Please go to the footer of parvanah.com and select "FAQ" for these metal-specific guidelines.

There are two main reasons for variation in colour. One is that computer monitors are not all calibrated equally and colour reproduction on the Internet is not precise. This means that colours could look different depending on what computer and/or browser you're viewing from. We do our very best to make sure that the photos we post are accurate for the piece that we are photographing. Please note that since our gemstones and wood stones are natural there will be variations in colour (i.e. the stones are not dyed and, therefore, colour isn't uniform) and size (i.e. some are hand-carved or shaped). This is especially important to remember for items that are not one-of-a-kind as we make each piece to order with the supplies we have on hand.

Please check each listing for details of which option is automatically applied. Malas are always sent with tracking. NON-TRACKED SHIPMENTS ("standard shipping"): Once the package is out of our hands we will not be responsible for any damaged or lost packages caused by the carrier. This means that if your package gets lost/doesn't show we have no recourse in trying to find your package and we will not be issuing any refunds for non-receipt of your item(s). Please consider upgrading to trackable shipping. TRACKED SHIPMENTS: We will provide you with the tracking number as soon as your product is dispatched. You can use this number to watch your purchase as she journeys to your home. Consider upgrading at checkout for purchases without a mala.

Time to delivery will vary depending on several factors such as the number of countries the package travels to and customs delays. If you are concerned about shipping times or loss of the package during shipment then please consider upgrading your shipping option at checkout to include tracking. Use the tracking number sent to you by Etsy when the item is shipped to keep track of where the package is currently.

We try to minimize the actual cost of shipping by packing your purchase in the smallest box available to us. Because of this the "actual cost of shipping" (postage + packaging) may be less than what you paid. (Yay!) If what you paid for shipping is $5 or more than the "actual cost of shipping" then we will issue you a refund for the difference (i.e. what you paid minus the actual cost of shipping). In the event that this happens, we will issue the refund through Etsy within 24 business hours of shipping your package.
