If you wish to order additional beads for your bracelet, this is where to do it! No bracelets or necklaces are included here, just the beads, but the diameter is important, so please choose carefully - double and triple wrap leather bracelets require different size beads.
The personalised life story beads are handmade from 925 sterling silver and handstamped and formed. Bead widths will be 6mm, 7mm, 10mm or 15mm depending on personalisation on them. Each bead can have approx 10-15 characters (eg name and date), with the 10mm beads having up to 2-3 lines of text. There is currently NO price difference between the 6, 7 and 10mm width of beads (£40 each), but the 15mm bead will be an additional £5 (i.e. £45 each) and they- will be made up depending on your choice. The font and size of font may vary, so that we can fit slightly longer text onto the bead if required and as with all our pieces, the handstamping may not be exactly aligned and perfect - that is just our quirky nature!
The hole for these beads is approximately 10mm for a double-wrap 5mm leather bracelet or 13mm for a triple-wrap 5mm leather bracelet.
6mm - approx 10-15 letters and symbols eg. Supermum (plus symbol)
7mm - approx 10-15 letters and symbols eg. Carpe Diem (plus symbol)
10mm - approx 10-15 letters and symbols eg. Appreciate all .. that you have (on two lines)
15mm - approx 10-15 letters and symbols eg. 2 rows containing a name and DOB, at a push 3 rows of text only
Vintage look: This will include hammered, matt and shiny beads, which have been antiqued (blackened).
New look: We will keep your beads shiny, matt or hammered, but not antiqued. The text will be visibile like in the photos.
Care: Please do not get your leather bracelet wet as this will damage the leather. The silver charms are best cleaned with a silver cloth and should not be dipped in liquid cleaner, as this will remove antiquing. This is the same for all items we make.
All personalisation can be re-confirmed in the comments box at checkout.
Please note that for these beads, we cannot add your own handprints or footprints, only text. A separate product exists for hand or footprint beads with large hole in the Autobiography section of our website. HOWEVER, we do have GENERIC hand and footprint stamps, which we can use on these beads, along with several other design stamps - see image with template of designs. If you wish to have a design stamp included, please specify which one you would like.
