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. If you would like to commission a bell rope for use on your bell, whether it be onboard, at home, or solely as a piece of fiber art, please send text or email for details.
