This bracelet is made from 10 mm round mahogany obsidian beads, blackened metal spacers, and one 12 mm round buri root bead.
They are all strung on a sturdy stretch string for an easy, clasp-less fit by sliding over the hand. The knot that closes the loop has been reinforced with glue for additional sturdiness.
Mahogany obsidian is a naturally occurring stone and therefore contains natural color variations from bead to bead and bracelet to bracelet, but is generally a deep reddish-brown volcanic glass stone with black woodgrain-like inclusions and streaks. Mahogany obsidian is claimed to promote grounding, eliminate blockages, and provide protection.
The buri root bead is a hand-carved bead from the root of the buri palm tree, which is native to India, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, New Guinea, northeastern Australia (Cape York Peninsula, Queensland), and the West Indies. These beads can range from brown to black, but this particular specimen is a deep black, accenting the black inclusions in the obsidian.
As shown, it is sized to an inner circumference measurement of about 7 inches where it touches the wrist (see image 4). The size can easily be adjusted with the addition or subtraction of mahogany obsidian beads and/or spacers for no extra charge (although it will change the pattern). If you need a different size, leave a note with the size you desire in the comments area of your order, and I will re-size it for you prior to shipping.
To determine the size you need, wrap a non-stretchy string or cord around your wrist at the place where you would normally wear this bracelet at the looseness at which you would want this bracelet to fit on your arm. Mark the length of string/cord needed to wrap that fit and then measure it on a ruler or tape measure for the inner circumference measurement needed.
Although I have done my best to photograph the color of this item accurately, please allow for variations in monitor settings and for the fact that the photo is taken under high powered lights.
