Opals are delicate. They can lose/absorb moisture from the air. Do not get them wet. It is recommended that they are stored in an air tight container out of the direct light when not being worn.
All sizes are estimates. These are natural hand cut gemstones so shape and color will vary.


FAQs

Most of the beads in our shop are natural handcut gemstones. Because they are cut by hand the size and shape of beads may vary. The hole sizes are typically very small. I recommend using very fine wire when working with the beads. If you would like to know if the beads will fit on a specific size wire please contact us and we will check before you order.

Apatite is a delicate gemstone rating a 5 on the Mohs scale. Take extra care when storing and stringing Apatite.

Opals are formed from silicon dioxide and water. They are found all over the world. Recently opals were discovered in the Wollo province of Ethiopia. These opals are called Welo opals. They are not only beautiful but they are also stable and not prone to cracking or crazing. However the opals are still very delicate. They can lose/absorb moisture from the air. Do not get them wet. It is recommended that they are stored in an air tight container out of the direct light when not being worn. The drill holes can be very small and may need to be strung with 0.014in or thinner wire.

I use breakaway magnetic clasps on all my pet collars to ensure the collar opens in case it gets caught on anything. This even includes your pet's paw, so if they scratch at the collar they could take it off. Because of this I recommend the collar is worn only inside so it doesn't get lost. Also because it can easily come off do not attach tags to it. This is more of a necklace for your pet rather than a traditional collar.

To measure your pets neck for collar size use a string comfortably placed around their neck half way between their chin and shoulders. You should be able to comfortably fit a finger or two in between the string and your pet. Then use a ruler to measure the string. Add a little extra length to accommodate the space that the beads will take up 1/4-1/2 inch.
