Bell ropes are a form of fancy marlinespike work and were historically used as handles or lanyards that attach to the clapper of a bell to facilitate ringing. My bell ropes are made using traditional tools, materials, and methods. The pieces shown below are currently available for purchase. Please send text or email for pricing and purchase details.

Brass Shackles
     Brass Shackles - These small shackles work well for attaching bellropes to bell clappers that have eyes. The larger size is most apprpriate for bellropes #3-#8. Bellropes #1 and #2 have eyes with a larger girth and may require a different attachment method. The small shackles are ideal for accessory lanyards and jewelry.
