Fortune Teller Row Counter & Scissor Fob MDFOB938277

Fountain of Youth handmade abacus row counters are beautifully functional multi-use tools. While tracking stitches, rows or repeats, the counter graces your wrist as a bracelet or functions as a fob – which allows you to tether your scissor or other tool within easy reach, perhaps on your knitting bag. Each string of beads, silver and gold, has 9 beads. Because of this, they can together track your count up to the number 99. When using the abacus myself, I designate the gold beads to be the tens digit (10, 20, 30 …, 90) and the silver beads to be the ones digit (1, 2, 3 …, 9). I have included complete instructions for how to use the abacus row counter in the link in the features below. With our handmade Fountain of Youth abacus row counter, you can eliminate the frustration of counting because you always know your position in your work.

*Abacus row counters are approximately 9 inches long and they may be too long to function well as a bracelet for your wrist. Shorter fobs have less functionality. If you intend to only wear it, please measure your wrist to check the fit before purchasing. I find it easier to use them when not wearing them.

I provide organza pouches in which to store your MarkiDieux handmade products to help you organize and protect them. Next, I package these product pouches in a sturdy and ribbon-wrapped box so that you will receive your products safely. Store your products in this box or some other similar sturdy storage case in order to prolong their long life.

Because I make my handmade products to order, the shown photos are not the exact product you will receive. Your abacus row counter will have the same style and quality of those in the photos, but you can expect slight differences due to the handmade process and normal bead variations.

This price listed is for a single abacus row counter. Please select the quantity and color in the options when checking out.

MarkiDieux handmade products are all made-to-order (MTO). This means that I do not carry completed stock for immediate shipping. Since I carry a wide variety of products, I do not keep all materials in stock as this is very cost-prohibitive. Therefore, I require time to make the handmade products which takes usually within 1-4 days. Very large orders will take longer. Time will be also be needed for my supplier(s) to process and ship any materials that I do not have on hand. This usually takes 5-7 days, but some suppliers will take longer. For example, lampwork beads will need hand-manufacturing time as well as shipping. A few of my suppliers are overseas, and this can add significantly to the manufacturer’s shipping time.

Please contact me before ordering if your order is time-sensitive so I can give you a realistic estimate on delivery.

Most orders will be processed within 7 days after receipt of payment.

More About Me:
I take pride in my work. I personally create every product that I sell. All work takes place in a smoke-free environment, and each piece is inspected closely to ensure the highest quality.

Because my items are hand-crafted, no two are exactly alike. Beads may differ slightly in size, shape and color. Any wire wrapped items (like stitch marker rings) may vary in size and shape. This only adds to the uniqueness of my items.

I don't just want satisfied customers - I want ecstatic customers that are confident in their decision to buy from me again and again. I welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions.

Disclosure: MarkiDieux used to named StixMarkers. I transitioned the shop to a new business model and name in September-October 2015.
