Landmark Beads - Sterling Memories of Your Travels
Click to browse our categories below:
Carina is pleased to showcase Landmark Beads, our own unique bead line designed to give you sterling memories of your world travels. The dozens of intricate sterling silver beads depicting world landmarks are designed by San Francisco Bay Area artist Shani Yokoyama. A master wax carver in Thailand brought Shani's designs to life. Each bead is cast in high quality sterling silver, and oxidized to bring out the intricate details. Landmark Beads feature breathtaking detail, with a 5 mm. interior bead hole that is compatible with many popular bead lines, including Chamilia, Biagi, Pasha, Pandora and Troll chains. They may be worn on pendants, bracelets or incorporated into your own hand-crafted jewelry.

To clean your Landmark bead bracelet, use a silver cleaning cloth and gently rub the bead every week or so. Do not immerse the silver bead in silver cleaning dip, as this will remove the dark oxidized parts of the bead. Store your Landmark Bead silver bracelet in an airtight jewelry holder between wearings to prevent tarnishing.
Retail stores holding resale licenses may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, Attention: Wholesale Department, to inquire about carrying Landmark Beads in their stores. Or call 1 415 753 2274 and inquire as to wholesale Landmark Bead sales.
Buyers beware! We have seen some fraudulent beads on the Bling Jewelry Couture Amazon.com website alleging that three beads (Welcome to Las Vegas, Dutch Windmill, and the American Flag White House) are "Landmark Beads." These are NOT authentic Landmark Beads and are inferior in both design and quality. When buying a Landmark Bead, be sure to carefully compare the photo on this manufacturer's site (www.carinacharms.com) with the bead you wish to buy. We have many outstanding retailers around the country and we are sorry that there are a few bad apples trying to pass off a bead as our quality product.
