Our customers often choose rubber (neoprene) over leather or silk for certain jewelry designs. It is so versatile! It comes in so many bright colors and even white. Feel free to pair it with sterling silver because, unlike natural rubber, neoprene does not burn or tarnish silver. It is available by the foot, so you choose the length. We at Artbeads.com love being able to offer a vast selection of beads, pendants and supplies, just like this one! The neoprene rubber material is latex-free, so it's safe for anyone to wear!
