Handle with care:

Waistbeads are made with cotton string (unless removable waistbeads are requested) and can be worn in the bath, shower, swim exercise and even sex.  Please be aware over time any gold or metal components on the waist bead can become less shiny.  Be mindful not to yank on them while pulling your clothes down.  

Necklaces, anklets and bracelets can possibly break if pulled on.  Remove before showering.
