Most of the praises for packages arriving quickly should be addressed to the Postal Services. We process orders as soon as we can, usually within 24-48 hours at most. Then most packages get into the Postal Service system, a few into the UPS system. Most arrive quickly, efficiently, and at amazingly low prices considering the door to door service... Keep in mind that occasionally a package gets way laid along the way and goes across the country twice before getting re-routed to the proper address, or internationally, it sits at customs... Extremely rarely a package gets lost altogether.

> About Metallic Braided Cord

March 2023

I sell my Hair Barrett’s in a small boutique in San Antonio TX. called the Silver Sour Boutique. They are strictly high end woman’s western wear. I’m retired and consider this mostly a hobby but do have an LLC. Wiley Natural Elements and Leathers LLC.

Also sell some more simply made (no cow hair showing) Barrett’s in a little hand made only shop called Made, here in the art district in down town Phoenix.

The metallic non stretching (very important) nylon braided .9 mm cord from your shop is the only product I’ve ever found that would add to the “ bling” of the dome studs or dots I use on Barrett’s and have the strength able to hand sew on leather without stretching, or breaking when I pull the stitches tight.

Your product is spot on what I needed. Thanks for being there for me and supplying my needs. Any other info needed, I will be happy to oblige. Greg Wiley from Peoria, Arizona

 
Marion Jewels in Fiber Review

April 2022 - Hi Marion, I like the light brown shade in the fine weight but it says it is AB. I want the same shade in .5mm. I do not like the .5mm that I have. Are these both AB but the die lots are off? I am fairly new to c lon. I cant seem to find my orders. Help! Robyn from Newberg, Oregon

Yes I know…. AB in fine weight does not match the other ABs… The other ABs are actually the correct color. It is a great source of frustration. See notes on colors the C-Lon Fine Weight webpage.

As to the color closest to Fine Weight AB, in the standard C-Lon Bead Cord 0.5mm size, the current dye lot of CLC-S Sable is almost the exact hue as the Fine Weight CLC.135-AB and just a tad darker than CLC.135-S.

 

April 2022 - I got my order- I love the thoughtfulness of your packaging , your very fair pricing and your advice about threads etc. thanks!! Caroline from Shaker Height, Ohio

Marion Jewels in Fiber Reviews

March 2022

Hi Marion! I just received my shipment, and I wanted to send you a little note to tell you how much I appreciated your super fast shipping!

I am doing Kathy King’s bead quilling for the first time, and when I needed specific colors of thread as a design element, I turned to your store. I have been following your blog for years, and I always appreciate the thorough and scientific approach that you have.

I absolutely love your method for two-needle odd count peyote stitch, and I tell fellow beaders about it all the time! Thank you again for the order. Nani from Seattle, Washington

 
February, 2022 - I have received the package, and I’m eager to start the kit. I want you to know how much I appreciate the card of C-Lon sizes that you include in each package. I have one on my work table and another two or three in my C-Lon drawer, and I use them all the time. I’ve shared them with others who also use them frequently. I also love your blog. I’ve learned so much from your posts. Just this morning I used the two-needle peyote start with great success. Thank you for all the contributions you make to the fiber arts community. Elise from Chattanooga, Tenessee
 

January 2022 - Hi Marion, Happy surprise! A company that does what it says it will only better. My order arrived even a day earlier than listed on the tracking order. Everything was beautiful, well priced, and more than met my expectations on quality. This is my second order with you. Great idea including size samples of the beading cord on your business card. I have forwarded your website info to two other beading buddies.
Good job Marion, Cheers, NIKKI Millei from Sebastopol, California

> About Temari Silk

October 2021

I'm one of your loyal fan. I am really sorry to see you are not going to the Pacific International Quilt Festival I recently purchased some of your new Japanese threads and I love them!

Here is a photo of the Temari Ball I did with all the Temari Silk Thread I got from you. It’s just a fairly simple kiku but it’s pretty stunning in person because the threads are so lovely. 

Roberta from San Jose, California

All the big convention shows I used to do, Stitches West, PIQF (Pacific International Quilt Festival, BABE BBya Area Bead Extravaganza) got cancelled before or during Covid. or moved to a new location... I am not sure I want to resume doing these big shows...

Oh Marion, these are so cute, hate to use that phrase but they are.  Never have seen the silk offered in such tiny a size. Love, love them. If you ever carry the 20 m size again,  please let me know. Everything arrived fast, safe & package beautifully.

Thank you. Sincerely, Mary from Madison, Wisconsin

I am glad you like the mini-cards. They were made by Kanagawa for their trade shows. They are normally not for sale other than directly at the trade shows in Japan. I do carry the 20 m cards HERE. All the colors are in stock. Thank you! - Marion

 

Missing Item in Order

June 22, 2021 - Dear Marion, My order was missing one 10g pack of the turquoise trail beads. 2 were on the order, and only one was delivered. I have to compliment you on your kits, products and service. I love your site and everything I’ve ordered. The CLon bead thread is my new favorite bead thread. With that- I will be placing an order for more clon bead thread, so maybe when you fill that order you could just send me the missing turquoise trail packet? I’m likely going to order more if that mix as well- it is sooo pretty. I’ll try to put the order in today.
Thank you very much, Lisa from River Vale, New Jersey

Unfortunately, it happens.We all make mistakes. I have learned to be more patient with myself when it happens and offer several options on the best way to fix the problem as soon as I am informed of a discrepency. In this instance we just added the missing item to the next order.

Just finished using the gold halos with jade beads, made a bracelet!

Thank you so much for the awesome beads!  - Shawna from Walnut Creek, California

I love the simplicity of this bracelet mounted of an elastic cord. All you see is the jade beads framed by the 14k gold plated bead halos. -Marion

More about the C-lon Sample Card

I just received my order and wanted to say a big Thank You for including the samples of the cord with the business card!

I just started doing loom beading, peyote and Kumihimo and was trying to figure out the difference in the cord sizes. I’m a visual learner so this was perfect timing! Thank you - I will be ordering again in the near future!

Hi Marion, Thank you.  I received my shipment and have already replaced the buttons on my blouse. It looks perfect now. Have a blessed day. From Lourdes, Oakland, California

I do sell buttons for jewelry making... Of course they can also be for buttons for shirts and coats. Have fun and update your clother with amazing button designs! - Marion

C-lon Bead Cord Samples

About the C-Lon Sample Card

September 28, 2020

Dear Marion, Thank you so much for the order, especially for the very handy sample of the different sizes of C-Lon. I am new to beading, and this sample will save me a lot of time and money, from Sonja, Minnessota

We try to send a sample card with each order of C-Lon Bead Cord. There is nothing better than to have a sample of all the 4 cord sizes on hand to choose the best size for your next project. We have been doing this for years, and even though it creates extra work, we seem to continually run out of prepared card samples and have to make more.

Giving my customers and collegues, the very best info and service has always been goal. Adding this card represents exactly the kind of service I am aiming for. - Marion

 
Metal Buttons for Jewelry Making

> About Metal Buttons

September 21, 2020 - A week or so ago I purchased the instructions for the Far Niente multi strand bracelet. I made it with some waxed cord I got at the craft store.

The instructions using You Tube were ingenious and so easy to follow. I ordered more C-Lon 400. Can’t wait to try it with “the good stuff.” - Tina from La Verkin, Utah

I just got an order of Italian Buttons in and I am expecting another shipment soon!  - Marion

 
Multi Strand Bracelets

> About Multi Strand Bracelets

September 7, 2020 - A week or so ago I purchased the instructions for the Far Niente multi strand bracelet.

I made it with some waxed cord I got at the craft store. The instructions using You Tube were ingenious and so easy to follow. I ordered more C-Lon 400.

Can’t wait to try it with “the good stuff.”  - Tina from Albuquerque, New Mexico

Thank you, I am sure you will love it. I much prefer C-Lon Tex 400 over waxed polyester cord for Pura Vida type bracelets. The wax on the polyester cord is very allergenic to lots of people, and it is not necessary for the bracelet...  - Marion

 

Occasionally things do not go as planned... and a customer does not get all the items they ordered...

August 24, 2020 - I received the missing item from my order today.  Thank you for correcting my order so promptly.
Thank you for the unexpected gift of the package of clamps you sent, I certainly can use them.  Very kind of you to send them. I also appreciate all the information & photos of colors on your blog & website. Have yourself a good day! - Arleen from Fremont, NH

 
Customer's comments

July 27, 2020 - Hi Marion, Thank you so much for your excellent customer service. My order arrived two days earlier than the estimated delivery date. Awesome! Can't wait to get started on my project. Will definitely order again. Regards, Nikki from Sebastopol California

As to order speed, we ship as soon as possible, then it is up to the US Postal Services or UPS. Both services are out standing!

> About C-Lon Fine Weight Cord

August 22, 2019 - Hi! Just wanted to send you a photo of some of my recent projects. Thank you so much for your beautiful cord. You are a blessing!- Holly from El Paso, Illinois

Gorgeous, can I post the photo in my customer's comment? Tatting all done with C-Lon Fine Weight Bead Cord Tex135, right? - Marion

Sure you can! Some that I tat are the slightly heavier weight cord, one up from fine. I think the redder one in this photo is that. But yes otherwise the 135 fine. - Holly from El Paso, Illinois

Oh, and here is my tip for the day: When you done tatting, consider blocking the piece. Pin the piece in place on a board covered with clear plastic and then just rub it with isopropyl alcohol. I use a lint free dusting cloth. And let it dry. The piece will be a bit stiff, so just shake it, but now the bonded nylon has a new memory and will fall into place much better. The alcohol softens the bond and when it dries, it is clearer, more transparent so the color shines through better and it has a new memory as to cord position.

If you want to make a stiffer piece, add Fray Block to the alcohol. Try low amount of Fray Block per Alcohol like a 10% or 20% solution. Increase for more stiffness. Oops, that was 2 tips. Thank you! - Marion

Thank you so much for the tips! I will try that with the one I am working on now. - Holly from El Paso, Illinois
