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.
