Some yarn and a dream...

>>How did you start your shop?

I originally opened up shop after the encouragement of my fiance who I would always drag with me to the craft store. After seeing a few of the items I would create for myself, he made the suggestion that I should start a website and sell my items because they were "that good". Then the research began....I started looking at every online venue to open up a shop and stumbled upon Etsy and I haven't looked back!

>>How did you learn to crochet/knit?

My mother passed away a couple weeks after my 10th birthday and I went to live with my god mother who had also been my mother's childhood best friend (their favorite movie was Beaches, coincidentally). As I was going through the angst of grief and just anxiety in general she sat me down one day and taught me how to crochet a scarf. Now this scarf was nothing fancy but the few moments I spent learning the dexterity of the hook and yarn in my hands afforded me precious moments of peace where I could quiet my mind. When my god mother passed when I was 16 I put down my hook because I felt that is was futile because I no longer had her company but some time passed only for me to pick it up again in college this time as a nostalgic past time.

>>What are some of your favorite materials to work with?

I love cotton embroidery thread! When I realized I could not only weave bracelets with thread (as we all did in summer camp) but I could also apply standard crochet techniques to make wearable pieces of art. Also, I'm from Maryland so I'm fond of chunky yarn to make thick, luscious cowls/scarves to fight old man winter.

>>What is the biggest perk of having your own shop?

I would have to say being able to design what I want on my own terms. I have a full-time corporate job as well but running my shop gives me the freedom to express myself creatively. I also relish in the reactions I get from people who purchase or are gifted my items. It's no feeling in the world like a happy, satisfied customer.

Frequently asked questions
I want to order waist beads. What size should I choose?

Before placing your order for waist beads, please measure where you would like your beads to fall using a measuring tape. There are no refunds or exchanges due to hygiene concerns, and the overall personal nature of waist beads. Please ask questions should you have concerns regarding sizing.

Recommendation - measure at the narrowest part of your torso. If you're unsure, bend to the side and measure where you crease - this is your natural waist.

Sizes are done in inches and range from 24 to 60 inches. Please be sure to select your measurement correctly!

Are the waist beads adjustable? Please send me a convo before purchasing if you want a strand that is labeled "tie-on" and you want a clasp. Not all strands can be converted from tie-on to clasp.

How to tie your waist beads: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7-_ZSk2mY0

Tie On - threaded on durable nylon thread meant for long term wear and are ideal for weight loss. Measure your waist at the narrowest part of your torso. Once tied, these cannot be removed. Do not tie too tightly as you'll risk popping your strand(s), so please give yourself a little room.

Adjustable - threaded on elastic with a 6 inch chain which allows the strand to be sized down and/or removed. Select actual Not recommended to be worn in the shower, or during physical activity.

Clasp Only - threaded on elastic thread, removable with a barrel clasp (use actual waist measurement). Not recommended to be worn in the shower, or during physical activity.

Return/Exchange/Replacement Policy for Waist Beads

Due to the custom nature of waist beads and hygiene concerns, there are no refunds or exchanges. All sales are final.

Please be sure to measure correctly. We cannot be held responsible for incorrect sizing or strands that aren't long enough to fit. Please send us a message before your order ships if you realize you selected the wrong size.

30 day replacement (tie on waist beads ONLY) - if your strand breaks along the strand (not at the knot) within 30 days of purchase, we will replace your strand with the same or similar strand, depending on inventory. Please send us a message with a photo of the break to file a claim.
