The Rastafarian colours of black, red, green and gold are evident in these creations. Most are made as a one size fits all design to enable their quick and easy availability to all persons.

These jewelries are most popular in tourist vicinities where visitors to the island can leave with a depiction of a little piece of Jamaica.

The beaded rings are quite popular also and are made with beads in the colours of black, green and gold. They are made by forming the beads together in a specific design with plastic chords which are invisible upon completion of this ring. They are usually one size fits all but are also made in various sizes upon request.
