Beaded Ropes - Hand-woven and Made to Order
I love making these ropes - stitching them is very relaxing - strange, but true. I sometimes refer to them as "plain" but they are anything but. These beaded ropes in my favorite twisted Herringbone stitch can be made in any length and practically any color plus sterling silver, antiqued silver, gold (24k gold fused to glass), bronze, and dark and light copper. The photo shows only a few colors and 3 sizes - the two on the left are "Large", the five in the middle are "Small" and the three on the right are "Tiny". If you have a favorite shade, contact me and I can probably provide it.
The price listed is for a 16" rope in regular glass seed beads or charlottes in any size (see further pricing information below).
Sizes (this refers to the diameter of the rope and the size of the bead used, not the length):
"Tiny" (appx. 4mm in diameter)
"Small" (appx. 5mm in diameter)
"Large" (appx. 6mm in diameter)
"X-Large" (appx. 8mm in diameter)
They can be worn "as is" or strung with your favorite pendant, focal, or lampwork bead (see samples). Most beads made for pandora style bracelets will fit easily on the "Tiny" ropes and most large-hole beads can be strung on the "Small" rope.
Priced by the inch:
$3.00 per inch for "regular" glass seed beads or Charlottes
$4.00 per inch for "metal" seed beads or Charlottes
Note: not all varieties of metal beads are available in the larger sizes.
Finished in your choice of clasp (sterling, gold-filled, gold vermeil, copper; hook, toggle, s-clasp or lobster) or allow me to choose.

REFUNDS & EXCHANGES:
I strive to make a high-quality, long-lasting product using high-quality components. I stand behind everything I make and I also want you to be completely happy with your purchase. If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied or just plain don't like it, please contact me and you may return it within 30 days for a full refund. If for some reason, something goes wrong with your piece, you may return it at any time for repair or replacement if repair is not possible. I would appreciate your contacting me first to determine if the problem is fixable. Again, I want you to be completely happy with your purchase and will work with you to make it so.
CUSTOM ORDERS: Custom orders are welcome!
While a lot of my pieces are unique and one-of-a-kind, some can be duplicated (or pretty close anyway) or customized to suit, including the unadorned ropes (see below). And if you want something really unique and special, I'll be happy to take a shot at it - just ask! I will also be happy to make matching or complementary pieces (earrings, bracelet, etc.) to your purchase - just send me a message with your request. Please allow an extra 5-7 days for custom orders. If needed sooner, let me know and we will work something out. Fifty percent (50%) of the cost is required at the time order is placed and is non-refundable. The balance is due when the item is finished and prior to shipping.
