Beaded Giraffe celebrates relational connection & teamwork with Beaded Giraffe “Gems.”
Beaded Giraffe “Gems” are not precious gemstones & initially started as a self-regulation strategy “between a rock & hard place” in life.
These Gems represent the power & beauty of relationship, human connection, teamwork & the joy these bring in whole-hearted living—through & beyond rocks & hard places.
Beaded Giraffe Gems also pay homage to the self-regulation function of giraffe spots,
in addition to individual identification.
An intricate network of blood vessels flow under each spot. A larger vessel rings the patch & smaller vessels extend to the center. The outer vessel regulates blood flow to
control release of body heat for internal temperature control.
Like separate jewels strung together, each patch contributes to the beauty & function of the whole, both outside & inside. This dual nature of giraffe spots inspired the Beaded Giraffe.
Other animals, such as zebra, hang out with giraffe in the wild, taking advantage of their towering height as an early warning system of potential danger.
Beaded Giraffe hopes to serve as an early warning system also. We know from personal experience that patterns in front of one’s own nose can be missed. But perception can change quickly!
Beaded Giraffe Gems are designed & handcrafted in the mid-western United States. They feature beads of Austrian & Czech crystal, pressed glass & fire-polished Czech glass. Beads are separated by silver or rhodium (non-tarnish) plated pewter disks (no lead, made in USA), or glass spacer beads. Any natural gemstone beads are identified. Each item includes coordinating charm/s. Alternative charms are also available. All earwires are silver plated & come with ear nuts.
Bead wires are 21-gauge silver plated or stainless steel.

beauty of relationship & teamwork from taller perspectives, with Beaded Giraffe Gems.
