Decoupage-inspired, paper-covered wood beads convey a romantic message. Made of an eco-friendly, fast-growing cultivated Taiwanese cheesewood. These beads are wrapped with decorative French language newspaper then clear-coated for a smooth luster and durability. Translation from French: Oh my love, I miss you so much. Since you have been away, I count each hour waiting for your return I wish we could meet at the lake and have a romantic starlit evening together again. Until then, I count every moment until we can be together. Each handmade bead is a spectacular conversation piece. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items.
