The internet can seem a very friendly place for some, but a sea of strangers for others.
If you are just visiting my site, or considering ordering from me for the first time, here are some comments from other customers to help put your mind at ease.
These comments are harvested from my Etsy shop feedback and I've kept them semi-anonymous to protect the innocent. ;-)
"What a wonderful tutorial. Mary always goes above and beyond to make her tutorials easy to understand. My highest recommendation!"
Diane regarding the Encasing Tutorial
"I just can't seem to get enough of these gorgeous dragons. This one is just as wonderful as the other one. The colors work so well together. I love the way this dragon is draped over the rock he perches on. Very unique and not like any others I have ever seen. Keep on thinking outside the box. Take care"
Lita regarding a Dragon Guardian Focal Bead
"Mary always writes wonderful tutorials, and this one is no different. The directions and pictures are wonderfully clear, making it so that even a novice could do it with a little practice. Also, her tutorials aren't run-of-the-mill things that everyone has written twelve times over. "

Joy regarding a Pictish Stone Dichroic Focal
Yes, I would melt glass even if I didn't get paid for it, but my business wouldn't exist without my customers!
