RopesofPearls' Shop Announcement

Leather wrap bracelets with semi precious gemstones and Czech glass. Lots of sparkle and unexpected items in fashion forward colors and styles!

Hi, everybody -- Thanks so much for your patience while I've had my shop on Vacation Mode. Back to business now, and I'm home at last with all my stuff.

I've also got a bunch of new things I need to post before the end of the week.

Usually ships in 2 days. Please allow 5 to 7 days to ship larger items like big cuffs and 5 X wraps. Individual items marked with days to shipping.

BUY FIVE!!! If you buy 5 or more bracelets or necklaces, (not including earrings), I will refund you an additional 10% to any coupon code you may be using. Shipping in USA is still free. Convo me when you make your purchase, and I will arrange your refund!!! This is a limited time offer.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:
I ship International Priority with registration, which requires your signature so that your package is as secure as I can make it. The Priority mailing is about 25 USD, and the registered mail is about 14 USD. The approximate combined total is what I use for the shipping cost.

ALL my items indicate whether or not the item is ready to ship or is made-to-order in the description. Convo me if you have any questions.

If one of my bracelets has sold but you'd like one anyway, please convo me to find out if I have enough materials to make you one!

ALLLLLLL my items are guaranteed MADE IN THE USA by one gal: me, the original US artist/designer of your item. This is a one-artist show. No factory, no drop shipping.

Have a birthday or other gift-giving event for which you need your bracelet? Lemme know, and I'll do my darndest to get your package to you with enough time.

A NOTE ON HANDMADE:

All my items are hand assembled by me with extreme care and careful attention to quality and view to longevity. I do not, however, make the buttons, spin the thread, or create the leather cord. I purchase the beads from various suppliers, and other manufacturers. I pass along information about these items to my buyers as carefully and as thoroughly as possible in the form of my descriptions where I talk about what the gemstones are, and what kind of finish the leather has.

Freshwater Pearls and Gemstones are are some of my favorite materials for my designs which come straight from my workbench to you. If you have a particular color or gem in mind, let me personalize it to your specifications. Let me make you that one of a kind piece that you've been dreaming of.

THE CARE AND TREATMENT OF PEARLS: Pearls are very low on the 'hardness' scale on which diamonds are a 10 (hardest). When you dress for the evening, your pearls should go on LAST. When you undress after your night out, the pearls should be put away FIRST.

Many of the pearls I use have a dye applied to them. While natural perspiration should not affect your pearls, you should absolutely not wear them swimming or in the shower or bath. Every once in a while you should rinse your pearls, and set them to dry on a paper towel to keep them clean and hydrated. Remember, pearls are created by an organic process and are an organic material and can dry out.

This type of bracelet, whether made by me or someone else is absolutely inappropriate for babies and young children! There are many tiny parts that could easily choke a child. Even if items, like mine, are well made, something unpredictable and unsafe could happen by accident, which could cause the beads to come loose, and then there would be a choking hazard. BEFORE PURCHASING any item for children, always ask the seller if their items have been officially tested for certain age groups!!! Anyone making and selling such items for young children should investigate the laws governing such sales for the small seller -- that means Etsy sellers.

None of my items is intended for purchase or use by children under the age of 15.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
