About

Hello and welcome! I am so happy that you made your way to our shop! I’m Laura, I’m the creator of West Coast Beads, mum to a sweet little babe, and wife to a brainy fella. We are located in the sunny Okanagan and when we’re not stringing beads, we’re spending our time hiking, playing frisbee, and lounging on the lake.

Motherhood is expensive and I spent the first year of being a mum buying baby products that I only used for a short period of time. West Coast Beads evolved from a desire to create baby-friendly necklaces that would grow with you as a mother. Even after your baby is through the grabbing and gnawing phase, these necklaces are a modern and stylish piece that you can continue to wear.

So, West Coast Beads was created with all of you amazing Mamas & Papas in mind. We know babies put everything in their mouths and we wanted to design jewelry that is safe, baby-friendly, beautiful, and functional. We take pride in our products, which is why we use 100% food-grade silicone.

We love what we do here at West Coast Beads and we want you to love it too!

What can West Coast Beads products offer my baby and I?

Designed to be functional and chewable, our products are made with soft baby-safe silicone beads and Maple hardwood beads polished with local Okanagan beeswax and organic coconut oil. These different textures enable children to satisfy their teething needs and help keep their little hand busy!

Our timeless designs ensure that you can continue to use and wear the products, even after your baby is through the teething phase.

Are West Coast Beads’ products safe for my child?

West Coast Beads’ necklaces and products use both 100% food-grade silicone and natural wood.

Our silicone products are 100% non-toxic and made with 100% food-grade silicone. They are BPA-free, lead-free, phthalates free, PVC free, and mercury free. Silicone is the perfect material for children to chew on because it does not support the growth of bacteria, is incredibly durable, and will not obtain its shape.

In addition to silicone, West Coast Beads uses untreated Maple hardwood from North American Maple trees, which are naturally anti-bacterial and non-allergenic. We polish our maple hardwood beads with local Okanagan beexwax and organic coconut oil.

How do I clean West Coast Beads products?

Hand wash in warm, soapy water and lay flat to dry.

We wash and individually package our products in plastic pouches before mailing, but we recommend a quick rinse before use.

SAFETY + CARE

SAFETY:
• Necklaces are not toys and are only meant to be worn by adults.
• Never leave a child unattended with accessories.
• Inspect accessories before use and discard if damaged.
• Safety clasps are not chewable.

WOOD BEADS:
• Our wooden beads are made from maple hardwood and hand polished with organic coconut oil and local Okangnic beeswax.
• For best results, maintain your wooden beads with an all natural, baby safe wood polish.

SILICONE BEADS:
• We use 100% food-grade silicone beads, BPA, Phthalates, Lead, Cadmium and PVC FREE.
• Silicone beads can split if an adult or older child uses enough force with teeth.

CARE:
• Wash with warm water and soap. Hang to dry.
• Do not submerge wooden beads in water.
