*NORTH AMERICAN SOURCED * These gorgeous, unfinished, high quality, natural, maple hardwood square beads are natural unfinished beads, without any treatment. You can treat them with your favourite oil (olive oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil, etc.), local beeswax, or leave them untreated. Treating wood beads with oil or beeswax will help preserve them longer.
Wood is a natural item and natural variations can occur; therefore it should be handled carefully and attentively to prevent any damage. Natural wood can crack or break with forceful impact or improper handling if they contain a knot or weakened area. Always inspect your product and never leave a child unsupervised with it. Do not submerge/soak in water - spot clean only. Do not put in the freezer. If you notice a crack or breakage, DO NOT give the item to a child.
