Happy customer pic! This lovely customer is wearing my Grateful Dead Stealie and Phish dreadlock sleeves. v
Katya is my faithful office assistant, and keeps me company whenever I work on orders. She was the inspiration for my Kitty Dreadlock Sleeve!

About

Decorating people's locks inspires me!

I've had dreadlocks for 14 years (2 sets), and love to decorate them with shiny things!

I'm self-taught in beadworking and have been doing it as a hobby for more than 20 years. I make every dreadlock sleeve by hand. Each tiny bead is securely stiched to its neighbours -- it's a time-consuming but meditative art!

I make all my dreadlock sleeves with premium Japanese glass delica beads and super-strong, waterproof beadweaving thread that won't stretch, fray or degrade. I carefully finish the thread ends so they'll never unravel or stick out. Prices reflect the time it takes to make each item, the detail and care I put into it, and the top-quality materials I use.

🔔 Your local taxes, customs duties, VAT, GST, etc are NOT included in my prices. You are responsible for any customs charges or taxes charged by your country.
Shipping
✈️ I SHIP WORLDWIDE. Sometimes Etsy has a glitch and says my item doesn't ship to your country, or that an in-stock item is unavailable. If this happens, please remove the item from your cart, re-add it, and try to check out again. If that still doesn't work, please message me immediately so I can alert Etsy and find another way to complete your order. Thanks!

🇨🇦 FREE shipping within Canada!

⏳I make most items to order. My production time varies from 1 - 5 days, depending on current order volume. Orders of 3+ items might take an extra day. If so, I will message you within 24 hours of your order to let you know when your package will ship.

📦 Shipping is by postal service airmail. Tracking is not available -- unfortunately it triples the shipping cost here in Canada! Average delivery time to most countries is 1 - 3 weeks. In some cases (holiday periods, Customs delays, etc) it can take longer. Please contact me if your package hasn't arrived after 6 weeks (USA and Canada) or 8 weeks (everywhere else).

📍If you want express delivery, message me for a price quote and include your zip/postal code and country. Express shipping to the USA (4 business days) starts at $15 USD; express shipping outside North America starts at $25 USD and varies by country.
Refunds and Exchanges
💜 I want you to LOVE your new dreadlock sleeves! If you're unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me to arrange an exchange or refund (item cost only, not shipping fees). Items must be returned in original unworn condition, within 21 days.

Care instructions

I make all my dreadlock sleeves with waterproof thread. You can wear your sleeves when showering, headbanging, surfing, doing sports, and dancing in the rain!

But please don't wear them while:

- bleaching or dyeing your hair (including henna)
- doing a dreadlocks deep-clean soak
- washing with baking soda or apple cider vinegar
- swimming in chlorinated pools

Custom and personalized orders

Colour changes are FREE on all my items.

I do custom designs! I can also rescale some of my stock designs if you need a specific size that's not listed. Message me anytime with your requests. Let me know your dreadlock diameter as well. (Check my Size Guide if you're not sure.)
