This listing is for 5 made to order dread/loc/braid beads in your choice of hole diameter and material. Materials available are solid raw aluminum or copper. These coils are wrapped in a random organic style, have variable lengths, and are filed at both ends for a snag free fit.
These will arrive polished, but are purposely designed with raw metal to achieve an earthy, natural look. The copper beads are meant to develop a natural tarnish and patina. The aluminum beads generally don't tarnish, though it is possible over time. The philosophy of Wabi-Sabi is very much embraced by the Heatherfish brand. Wabi-Sabi, in it's pure definition, is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.
A pro-polish pad is included with copper and brass orders should you wish to maintain the polished finish.
For any custom hole diameter requests, please select the "custom request" option on the drop down menu and leave me a note at checkout with details.
