SEDA aims to use the highest quality material in all of our designs. However, some of our listed items were produced with dyed beads that will naturally fade in colour with daily usage.

These items are currently reduced in price because they are made with pale pink, bright purple, pastel yellow or beige beads and these dyed beads will eventually fade in colour. These items can be found in our sale section with a description detailing which beads will eventually fade due to wear.  

SEDA collective is still a very young business and we are continually learning how to best conduct a slow fashion brand without compromising quality and remaining consistent with our ethical values and our passion for sustainability.

It is important to note that we used glass beads and the thread we use in our jewellery are the same thread indigenous tribes have  used for fishing with for many years. They have been selected due to their historical and cultural value and their durability.

We have provided some information on how to best care for your dyed SEDA pieces and to ensure their longevity below.

Bracelets:

(Picture above: SEDA bracelet example made with dyed pink and pastel yellow beads fading after 8 weeks of daily wear)

The dyed beads used in these bracelets will naturally fade after 3 months of daily wear. You may notice that the bracelets will fade quicker than the other items of dyed bead jewellery due to the placement of the bracelet and its contact with the skin. It is highly recommended that you avoid getting the bracelet wet by showering, sweating or allowing them to get in contact with perfumes, body lotions, deodorants and other hygiene products. When removing the bracelet, return the bracelet to the provided jewellery pouch and keep the item away from direct sunlight.

Also, please keep in mind that the longevity is also based on usage. If you wear the bracelet on a daily basis, this will cause the item to fade faster.

Earrings:


(Pictured above: SEDA Earring example made with beige dyed bead fading after 9 months)                                                                           

As for SEDA earrings made with these dyed beads, they can take up to 12 months before you may notice the colour of the beads fading. This is due to the fact that they have limited contact with the skin therefore avoiding the friction that generally causes them to fade. We suggest storing the earrings in the jewellery pouch provided and keeping them out of contact with direct sunlight. Please make sure to remove the earrings when showering and avoid getting products such as perfume on the earrings.

If the piece you have purchased or intending to purchase is not found in our sale section or there is no description detailing the use of dyed beads, please follow the general care instructions instead.

We do apologise for any misleading information we have provided. However, we hope that upon following the care instructions provided, you will ensure a longer period of wear and enjoyment of your items.

Please note, that even though these items are listed for sale on our online store, the amazing artisans who have weaved these products have been paid in full. We are more than happy to take a small loss of profits as doing otherwise compromises our ethical values.

Stunning

It took me a while to decide which cute hummingbird to get as they are all so pretty. I settled on this one and I am so happy with it. The colours are stunning and the beading is so detailed. I really appreciate that they are all hand made and one of a kind.

Beautiful handiwork

After some complications with my order, I received transparent communication and rectification. The earrings arrived quickly, as described, and were absolutely beautiful. The handiwork is superb and of excellent quality. Recommended as a thoughtful gift for anyone interested in supporting grass-roots projects, artisans, and Indigenous livelihoods, and of course, fans of colourful and intricate beadwork!

Awesome!

I love these gorgeous earrings! They look almost like feathers 😊

They’re so beautiful and with all the time and care that goes into making them I was worried about how they’d travel and worried about how fragile they might be, but they are very well made, were excellently packaged and are divine!

Love love it !

I have always loved the SEDA's Collective products. But the Mariposa Midi Monarch exceeded my expectations. It was small than a previous order and the sizing was just right. Have gotten many compliments and interest in where I got the earrings from. They are very popular and very stunning! Certainly a favourite of mine. Highly recommend and worth the purchase.
