Let your jewelry do the counting! Instead of counting in your head or keeping track with plain and boring plastic odometers, use this gorgeously glimmering chain abacus row counter to count from 0 to 99 whilst catching the light in affluent style. Don't worry if you don't know how a counting chain works - the included instruction card with clear pictures and words will have you up to speed quickly. Row counters and stitch markers also make an excellent gift for the knitter who loves you!

This row counter uses a moveable marker and your needles to keep count, so it doubles as a stitch marker. It can even be used on movie nights or by visually impaired knitters, because there aren't any numbers to see! The set also includes additional matching stitch markers, which makes it perfect for making sweaters, blankets, shawls, and other projects with multiple sections. This style of chain counter is sure to feel decadent on your knitting with its gemstone finials and marker charms.

Shown for reference on a US Size 8 (5.0mm) knitting needle, this row counter style measures approx 9" (23 cm) from the small beginning charm to the lightweight enameled brass end charm, with a 1-1/4" (3.0 cm) moveable marker. All jump rings are tightened before shipping to avoid snagging.

For the ultralight version that is easier on delicate elbows, see this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/652459940/ultralight-chain-row-counters

Please note, this is not a heavy-duty item. Subjecting it to higher stresses than it was designed for, such as using it larger than US Size 11 (8mm) needles or tugging on it, might cause the rings to open slightly and snag on the yarn or slip apart. If this happens to you, the rings can be squeezed back together with pliers.

I offer gift wrapping and expedited shipping options. See my gift wrap add-on listing here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/88424134/gift-wrapping

Please contact me for a custom listing if you'd like an order of more than 10 units! I offer discounts for large orders.
If there's anything wrong with your item and you need to return or exchange it, it's extremely important you contact me via Etsy Convo first!
For some issues, I may send you a prepaid return label when you contact me. For all issues, if you don't contact me first the package may get lost because I share my space with folks who don't always remember to tell me that a package came for me or where they stashed it. If I know it's coming I can keep an eye out and know to ask around.

Please note, depending on the issue I may or may not be able to honor returns or exchanges on items that were made specially for you. Please contact me right away via Etsy Convo to discuss.
The durability of my items is very important to me. If your steel cable badge reel or abacus bracelet has developed a problem, please contact me via Etsy Convo right away and send me a picture of what's wrong. Depending on the item and the issue, I may be able to repair it for you. If it's within 30 days of delivery and I can repair it, I'll send you a prepaid label to send it back to me for repair no matter where you are in the world.
Probably! My counting bracelets are made from coils of memory wire that expand and contract around your wrist. If the width of your wrist measured flat at the widest point is between 2" and 3", the bracelet should fit fine with no alterations.
If your wrist is particularly large or small, contact me about making you a custom version. I can probably accommodate you! Contact me via Etsy Convo to discuss.
My turn around time for custom orders varies a lot, but for many items it's often about 3 weeks from when you pay for your custom listing.
Please contact me via Etsy Convo to find out how long it will take for the item you want. During some times of the year you can pay a little extra to get certain items made up faster if I already have the materials on hand.

    I am very satisfied with this item as of yet. I use it for my work badge every day. However, there was no mention or picture of the birds that would be on the backside of the reel housing. To me it’s not a big deal, a minor annoyance but I do wish that I had been aware of it and perhaps had the option of changing it to something more fitting for a professional adult male. However, as I previously stated, I am very satisfied with the product.

    Already put it to use and I love it. It's sturdy and reliable as advertised and the finish looks aged as if it's old and worn which i love! If i had to criticize something is that it's a little heavy but that's nitpicking. Great product!

    I Love my badge reel. I go through badge reels every 3 months. I wanted one that was going to last. I think this one hits the mark!
