This strand is not intended to be a ready-to-wear necklace. Although the strand can be worn "as is," the string holding it together is not durable and may break with use. For this reason, we recommend that you restring the beads before wearing them.

Additional information:
These colorful beads are made in Uganda from paper, which is then coated to protect the beads.
