Material & Makers Notes
This piece is 100% handmade. Crafted from sustainable plantation timber it is grown, managed, harvested and replanted by the Go Green organisation under the guidance of the DNER. Each bead and piece is hand cut, shaped, dyed and then polished with a natural wax based product. The beads are strung on waxed cotton cord and the finished piece is extremely light. It is handmade in Cebu, Philippines by a family owned workshop called Earthworks who have collaborated with ELK since 2004.

Resin can be wiped clean with a soft dry cloth or cleaned with cold water if needed. The surface can scratch if exposed to abrasive surfaces and lighter colours can be affected by sunscreens, make up or other liquids - especially if tinted. Avoid water and other liquids on wooden beads, do not store in direct sunlight. If milky spots or marks appear due to contact with liquid they can be removed using ELK's jewellery wax or another suitable natural polish. For best care we suggest wiping your piece down after wear.
