*******************************************************************************************
How to measure dreadlocks for beads:
1) Wrap a piece of paper around the dread and mark where both sides meet together.
2) Measure the distance between marks in millimeters, this is the circumference of your dreadlock.
3) To get the diameter you divide the circumference with 3.14 ( π pi) and that gives you the diameter of that dreadlock!
4) any questions please contact me here on Etsy. If you can get a measurement in either inches or millimeters around the loc, I can do the rest :)

Inches to millimeter (approximately)
1/4" = 6mm, 1/2" = 13mm, 3/4" = 19mm, 1" = 25mm

*******************************************************************************************
If anyone would like some totally free Milkweed seeds (native to the Midwest), please message me here on Etsy. I have tons of Milkweed naturally growing in my yard.
I am happy to pay postage. No strings attached! Just trying to help the Monarch Butterflies! US only because - laws.

No one ever notified me that my item was shipped. I made several attempts to communicate to find out...Beads are tiny and not as they appear here. Geez peeps, where's the love?

##### Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like to have a custom bead made just for you, this is the info I will need to made you the bead you desire.
1) Length - how long the bead is from hole to hole. O<--------->O
2) Hole size* (Measuring Guide is on my front page in Shop Announcements.)
3) approximate width of bead, usually a bead is the biggest width in the center. Another way to state the with is how would you like the bead? more of a cylinder shape or bicone shape
4) color- white, dark brown or light brown I usually have supplies for at all times. Red- brown and gray as well as mixed colors are not always available.
