This large bead measures 6mm in width and each and every bead is unique, having been hand machined from a solid carbon fibre block and using components once destined to be fitted to a formula one car. Unlike the ultra thin carbon fibre used in the cars bodywork outer skin, these were once spacers, shims and housings using Carbon Fibre as a lighter alternative to lightweight metal alloys. This painstaking process means each carbon bead is totally unique- just like snowflakes and fingerprints! After deep cleaning, each charm is treated in an anti-bacterial oil to bring out the beauty of the material. Each charm is finished on equipment installed in 1961 which was also used to create components for droids & suits for the original Star Wars movies. This wonderful bead will be delivered in a branded pouch. To find out more about the origin of this carbon fibre, visit www.racinggold.co.uk and search the ASJ page. Each piece of carbon fibre jewellery will be delivered with a special certificate.

Lifestyle and gifts
Sustainability is at the heart of our concerns with our gift items thoughtfully designed and packaged, using only the necessary packaging to avoid excess waste and needless recycling. If you receive white foamy peanuts inside your order, these are fully biodegradable and can be run under a tap to dissolve, or popped on the compost heap. We apologise but due to costly delivery charges some of our items are only available for delivery within the UK.
