Seeing the Jewelry

This week at work (week 6), I finally had the opportunity to learn about the jewelry and its production process. The tassel necklaces takes 10 hours of labor because they are hand beaded using a process that makes them impressively durable. The beads are made of hematite and some are polished to be shiny or matte. They also come in different sizes and are strung on a nylon string. The clasp that closes the beads are made of sterling silver and close with magnets that disguise themselves as bead. I was over all very impressed by the workmanship that went into creating the jewelry. I grew to respect my boss even more because she is dedicated to selling the highest quality jewelry possible.
