Silk is a very interesting material because it is classified as a natural fiber protein. The protein fiber comes from larvae and the cocoons of the mulberry silkworm. Silk is produced by several species of insects but in general, only the silk from moth caterpillars is used in textile manufacturing. India is one of the largest silk producers in the world after China. In modern new age circles silk is believed to have many positive metaphysical benefits when worn. Some say silk jewelry is considered to deflect magic, and to protect the wearer from negative energies.
Here are just a few tips and tricks for when you’re working with silk thread. Try to keep your silk thread and silk strung jewelry creations dry! Always remember to take off your silk string bracelets and necklaces when doing daily household chores like gardening or the dishes. Silk is easily damaged by water and if there is too much exposure to water they can break. Also, always remember to store your silk jewelry in a safe and dust free space. If you take all of these precautions your silk strung jewelry will last for a very long time! With such an interesting history and a mesmerizing means of being produced, our silk thread and cord make a great tool to use in all of your jewelry creations! So go ahead and take a chance with our enchanting silk cords and thread.
