handmade in Australia it was designed and constructed in 2013 by four-year-old Tysi and his mom to help support the medical treatments of Trax, a boy diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. the Pray4Trax necklace is handmade out of wooden beads, a little animal and a magnetic lock. the magnetic lock works as a safety precaution because it snaps open if the child is caught in it. each necklace comes in a gift box with the story inside, so even when purchased as a gift the receiver will understand the meaning behind the necklace. please be aware color from beads might stain if in contact with liquid and slight color differences on beads and animals can happen.
