*Due to COVID-19 shipping delays will occur.

I put a lot of thought, style, prefect imperfections, etc. into my work. I take pride into creating the prefect piece for you. I will go above and beyond in the details of the product I make and will redo if I doesn't meet my standards. In my floral items, I will make sure there are no holes and its fluffed all the way around.

Any rope items that do not have a tub, glass/ceramic vases, etc., is freestyle, I do not have a mold for any shape rope product. They are all done by hand, which allows for imperfectly perfect products.

Majority of the items listed have SOLD at my vendor events, made for family, gifted to friends, or donated for non-profits for their raffles to help raise money.

I have created multiple ads so I can show all my work and what I can make, what I can do and give you ideas in the event the item you like has been sold, I will create another in similarity. This applies to wreaths, wrapped items and all rope products. Some items are literally a 'one of a kind' and I will not have the ability to reproduce. If you have an idea, please send it, but I will not copy another artists' work.

Buyer or potential buyer will have the understanding that the floral or fluff used will be seasonal, or a last year theme. I will do my best to hit all the stores to get as close as possible to the pictured item you like/purchasing.

Please contact me, before or after, (purchase). I can easily make a custom design to your specifications, and color..(I can't duplicate, which makes them unique). If you have a color in mind and the item doesn’t allot for choice of color, please send me an email or do ‘add note’ to me with at least 3 options...

If you have any question, please ask. We are a very pet friendly and a non-smoking home.

About RusticRopeNTreasures

Sales 50
On Etsy since 2016

There is art to be found in everything, just take the time to see...

I have been retired since 2006 from the NVANG, a Veteran, I decided to get a college degree. While there, I took a few art classes and found that I enjoyed it.

We love history and there is so much out there...! Much of the items we find are reflected in some of my work...if it’s old, damaged, forgotten, and discarded.. chances are I’ll use it in my work. We see the endless possibilities for a repurposed life in these castoffs from history.

I began to find the "art" in everything...from animal skulls, sheds, rusty or rustic items, wood, barbed wire, old windows to recyclable items. Even my husband brings everything home for me to take a look at "just in case" it can become a 'treasure'. Everything has the potential to be repurposed, you just have to seek the possibility and the beauty it once had.

Our ranching friends call me the "trash collector" which is funny since we own a trash & recycling business. Many of the pieces used are from the business, scouting, riding, shopping etc...the possibilities are endless.

As I am riding with our friends, scouting and scanning the mountains for the cows, I also scan the terrain, as there is always something to find...I will find sheds, animal skulls & rusty things which I grab and tie on my trusty horse, Joker. Much of my materials are found in the mountains of Nevada, old ranches/homesteads, antique stores, from cowboys, etc. Sometimes, I get really lucky in finding more then 1 skull or sheds, a pair from the same buck is a real treasure! One time I found 5 skulls in one go!

Buyer pays all return expenses. Refund, if accepted, will be after item is in my possession and inspected.

NO refunds or exchanges for any custom or personal orders. I took the time to create the item.

Estimated Time of Arrival

Every package will include a tracking number. When an item is shipped, depending on the carrier, in general, most items should arrive within a week of the ship date. Etsy should notify you when a package is shipped!

Please allow additional shipping time during holidays, especially during Christmas. Holiday seasons can delay shipment up to two additional weeks because of the amount of packages in transit. Express Shipping can be purchased depending on the order size and customization of the order. If desired, please contact us for express shipping additional costs.

Item In Picture(s)

I handcraft each item shown & no two items will be exact. Several different pictures of similar items have been displayed, however, there will be some noticeable or slight variations.

I am unable to duplicate the exact item, as the hondo lays differently due to the stiff/softness of the rope, or other variations in the item that is crafted. Other variations, like wrapping, is dependent on rope or what is being wrapped.

Please note that the ads are listing the pictures of what I have done or can do, and is more for viewing and ideas for your custom order. I will check my inventory on inquiry or purchase.

How Are Item Crafted

Lariat Rope basket making is done by using a soldering iron that melts the rope. I do not dye the ropes either before or after. The ropes are purchased by the cowboy in his/her color choice or signature color.

At times and to ensure quality work, burn marks, sharp points/areas or other variations me be found or present on the item. The ropes used are actual ropes that were used on the ranch or in a rodeo.

I do not wash them, and they will have hair and dust on them, however, if they are full of dirt, I will rinse them. They won't have the poo on them, as I don't care to work with that..I like the "dirty" of the rope as it allows me to bring the colors (for colored ropes) of the rope out. I have several in my home and there is no smell.

Disclaimer

Because a soldering gun is used for the rope making, there may/can have some sharp point, though I do my best to catch them, some may escape my attention... I am burning the ropes and there can be dark marks or other variations from the burning...

These are actual ropes used on the ranches and rodeo's, and there will be hair and dirt on them.

We are a very pet friendly home, but are non-smokers.

If you have allergies, please contact me and so we can make it so that you can have one of these items in your home.

Shipping Cost

Ships from United States and within the U. S. at this time. Other shipping option found in checkout..

Sizing details

I custom make the rope items and most of the time, they can be of any size, height or dimension as they are handcrafted... *Those that I have already made and still available are excluded.

For example, if you have a specific area or space is limited, let me know the size you need and I will do my very best to have the item fit (I would need exact measurements).

Shoot me a message and we can see if we can make it work.

Please Note

Some ropes will NOT be the same ropes listed. I have a variety of brands, lays, lengths and colors available and they are chosen randomly.

These ropes have been used on the Ranch or Arena. They will/may have dust, dirt, hair, and other gross things on them. They are dusted off, I just have to prepare people in case they are sensitive or have allergies.

Ropes are not washed as I keep them authentic. The dark markings that remain in the ropes are rubber burns. The burns are caused by cowboys dallying the ropes around their saddle horns that they wrapped with rubber to protect the leather from being damaged while working/roping cattle.

Custom and personalized orders

I have ads to cover the majority of orders. Please contact me for your custom orders, for specification, size, color, # of ropes needed, bling, etc.

Be sure to click on the correct ad, as I have multiple ads for the same items, as this allows the buyer to see all my work. Take the time to view all your options..!

Items have a base price, but may/can have additional fees if your size requires more then the rope indicated or other variations.

Please contact me for your custom work; and please visit any ad for your inspiration, colors, style, etc.

I will work with you through the whole process, and will correspond via email and/or text and I nee a timely response, especially in special or custom orders.

*Additional fees may apply.
