Last words…….

Please keep in mind that beads and jewellery generally are not intended for children as they may potentially create a choking hazard.  The beads are glass and though surprisingly strong, can break if dropped or hit against something hard.  Please immediately discard any broken beads and take care not to expose them to extremes of temperatures or subject them to undue force or impacts.
