    Hi. I’m wondering where the coral beads come from. I hope that they are not taken from live coral reefs.
    Also, what are the “ivory “ beads made of? As a citizen of the world, we all need to help take care of our environment so that our children and grandchildren will have a beautiful, natural world to grow up in.
    Thanks. Wand Ramatou Sand Chomilo
