Meet the Maker of Nothingbutstring



Nothingbutstring Maker


What is Nothingbutstring? Nothingbutstring is just what it says, nothing but string.  Whether it be thread, yarn, or any other kind of string, I'm addicted pure and simple.  It just not any kind of string mind you, my string needs to live in the here and now with form and color that projects an essence of modern nostalgia.

My career as a maker of handmade items started in 2008 when I opened my first on-line shop, but my love of handmade can be traced back to Grandmother who taught me how to crochet at a very early age.  My craft as a crocheter has come a long way since then. It's led me to find my love of knitting, and when I couldn't find the colors I wanted to work with it lead me to my love of coloring thread.

My work now encompasses everything from my crocheted statement necklaces, fun earrings, pins, and rings, to my handmade knitted accessories for him and her, and finally, onward my hand dyed crochet thread. 

I am a one woman shop where all my items are made to order. This means that depending on the item, orders can take anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks to ship. This does not include the shipping time itself, so plan appropriately if you are ordering something for a special occasion.  I know that it's a long time to wait in this next day delivery world, but I assure you that it's worth the wait.

Hand-dyed thread is usually available within 1 week

Hand crocheted rings, pins and earrings are usually available within 1 week

Hand crocheted statement necklaces are usually available within 2 – 3 weeks

All knitted items are usually available within 2 – 3 weeks.

Depending on the time of year things can move more swiftly meaning it will take less time. This is very true of the spring and summer months. During the fall and holiday season, things move a little slower due to overwhelming demand meaning that I'll need the whole 3 weeks to get your item made and shipped.

Please feel free to contact me at any time for updates on exactly where you are in the process or if you have any questions about your order.
