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.

📦 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.
