Our juniper beads are made from Carpathian juniper. Juniper has a beautiful aroma and antibacterial properties. All of the beads are handmade and therefore the sizes, shapes, colours and patterns may vary from necklace to necklace.
The juniper wood has a deeply aromatic scent– a subtle blend of floral, earthy and herbal.
This wood type is very patterned, and no two beads are the same, the colour ranges from light cream almost white to a deep dark brown. Juniper is a softer wood than our beech wood beaded necklaces, therefore it is generally more suitable for younger babies.
We source our juniper wood from a lovely family business here in Europe. It has been fully safety tested to BSEN 71 1-3 2013.
All our wooden necklaces are made with European sourced, unfinished (non-toxic, no colour or varnish) wooden beads, crochet covered wooden beads made with organic cotton yarn, on an adjustable slip knotted cotton cord, so you can wear the necklace long or short. The beads range between 12 mm and 27 mm. Each necklace is approximately 30” at full length.
This product is an item of adult jewellery and is NOT a toy. Children & babies must only interact with this product when it is worn by an adult due to the long cord - strangulation risk. Do not allow children to wear this product. Do not leave children unsupervised with this product. Please inspect for damage on every use and discard if damaged.
Our wooden jewellery components and designs have been tested by a UKAS Independent test house for compliance with EN71 part 1,2 and 3.
To clean your necklace, wash with a mild soap solution and warm water and allow to dry naturally.
To keep the wooden beads in tip-top condition, use a small amount of olive oil on your fingertips or soft cloth and rub into the beads. You could also use coconut oil or beeswax if you prefer. Leave the oil/wax to absorb for 10-15 minutes then wipe off any excess – the longer that you leave the treatment to absorb, the better the result.
Maintaining moisture in the beads helps to nourish and protect them, as well as bringing out the natural grain of the wood.
