I worked at our local western store in high school and college and always had a dream of owning my own store. I moved to Texas and that is where I started hand beading necklaces and putting rhinestones on anything I could think of right in the living room of my home. I started the website ropesandrhinestones.com and became a self taught web designer so I had a place to sell what I was making. I spent 2 years in Texas and when we decided to move back home to Iowa that's when I started selling at various trade shows and horse events. I have since added clothing to the store and do my best to bring you the latest fashions at affordable prices because I believe everyone should have the opportunity to look and feel great about themselves. Enjoy looking through the website and feel free to email me with any questions or comments you might have.
