Hi, I just happened across your site while getting ideas for my wire wrap gemstones and sea glass.

The fact that you give away information, don’t insist personal information, has bought my business already.

To add to the joy (yes, I’m prone to hyperbole but I’m absolutely enchanted with your business model), you add stone treatment information rather than burying it somewhere.

It’s very important to me to be able to tell my customers the what’s been done to their stones, the quality, source and composition of the gems they buy.

I believe I’m the only vendor to have the FCC and AGIA disclosure booklets available at any festival I’ve attended.

You have a customer now and, if OK, I will use your page on stone treatments, with proper attribution of course, as a handout at my next festival the end of this month.

Brightest blessings,

Liz

There is only one place I buy my stone beads. This is it. There is not another vendor out there as honest, well priced, professional and customer service oriented anywhere. Magpie Gemstones is not only knowledgeable, but freely shares expertise, know how and only sells quality. The package arrives safely, quickly, and there is never an unpleasant surprise. I rarely make it to the door from the mailbox without opening my packet for a peek. It really is better than a visit to a favorite bakery.

I have made several purchases from Magpie and have never been disappointed. The shipping is always quick and arrives safely and wrapped securely. The customer service is top notch and you can feel safe in getting real gemstones not fakes.In this day and age there are so many people trying to pass off low quality and fake gemstones that you have to be very careful. With Magpie I know I am getting just what they say it is. I highly recommend Magpie to anyone!
Cathy Voss, Kiss The Moon Gems
Szarka always has nice looking gemstones. Many companies will sell strings of beads with a bunch of broken ones, that doesn't happen here. My orders always arrive in a timely manner and in good condition. I love that Szarka has done videos showing how to create different jewelry. She is very personable and I feel that if anyone has a problem with their order, she will make it right for you.
Ruth Moldan
10 being the best in my book. I can always trust Szarka's quality. If I'm buying loose stones I know that they have been culled by cut, color and size to be as similar as possible. I love the close up pictures and the fact that she is incredibly knowledgeable about her merchandise. Plus I learn lots of new and interesting facts and I've been working with gemstones for 25 years.

I have ordered several thousand dollars worth of gemstones from you over about 3 years. I have never been disappointed in the quality of the stones. Always exactly as described, the pictures on here are good, but can never do the real thing justice.

I will always order my goodies from you. Well, unless I'm picking them up from Kateri in person at a gem show.

Thank you so much for the care you take in putting together our orders, fulfilling special requests to the best of your ability, matching pairs, etc.

The ordering process is easy, your customer service can't be beat, your inventory is amazing, and I can't thank you enough for your awesome discounts with larger orders!
Teena Welch
I always love ordering from Magpie Gemstones. I can rely on the quality of the stones I order. I know I will receive good quality at a fair price. I have bought stones, pearls and metal findings from Szarka over many years. The fast, friendly service and attention to quality products are why I continue to buy from Magpie Gemstones. I’m so glad to have found a reliable source for my jewelry making needs.

I dont remember how long I've been shopping with Magpie but its been awhile. I honestly cant say what I appreciate and value most, the value of their products, the integrity, the willingness to help educate her buyers, the personal customer service or knowing when I buy turquoise I can do it without a second thought. How many gemstone suppliers will match beads in pairs by special request or monitor multiple forms of communication to correct an error a customer made? I'll be a Magpie customer as long as they are in business.
Lisa Riley, Sophisticated Hippie
Beautiful gems! Fair pricing! And Szarka takes care to match up pairs when possible. Even goes the extra mile to try to find the gem I need when I let her know. Fabulous service.
Therese
I have ordered several times from Magpie, and have been very happy with each purchase. I know that I can trust these are genuine gemstones and not fake dyed stones like I have seen on other sites. Prices are great, shipping is fast. I would recommend this site to anyone who wants great quality gemstones.
I will order again from this site.

I really like Magpie. I can trust that the material I receive will be exactly as described. I trust Szarka. That’s a good thing.
Nancy Koehler, McKenzie’s Jewelry
Magpie always has a great selection, fine quality and wonderful people to work with. I appreciate the quality, selection and Sazarkas willingness to share her knowledge and insight. It's nice to have such a variety of stones in one place! Also, great resource information plus hands on helpful video tutorials.

It has been a pleasure doing business with you!
lynne, lspHeart Jewelry Designs
I am ALWAYS delighted to see the quality of gemstones Magpie Gemstones delivers! Each and every shipment has met and exceeded my expectations!

These gems are gorgeous as well as very reasonably priced! I only wish I could pick up a winning lottery ticket because there are so many beautiful stones in Szarka's shop calling my name.

Magpie Gemstones also offers educational demos and chats online to make the already wonderful service outstanding!

Join the group, browse the shop, you will for sure find something gorgeous you need to have!

Thanks, Szarka! I'll be back!
Becky Huebner, Crazy Aggie
Hi Szarka,

I always trust the quality of your stones to be just like if I had hand picked them myself. Most of the time I purchase from Texas Magpie Kateri and always love everything I get. Just had to post on my latest purchase from you, 10MM AA Kyanite. They are Spectacular and I can't wait to design with them. Also loving the center drilled quartz points and Amethyst slice pendants.
Hard to believe Tucson Gem Show is just around the corner.Hoping to get there this year myseld but also know I can trust you to pick the Best if I don't make it!

Happy Holidays,
Sandie Shopp

I'm so happy with my purchases from Magpie! The service is incredible, and the beads are so beautiful. Today's order gave me chills :) The free beads, which I wasn't expecting, are stunning as well. Feeling lots of bead love today!

Hi there Szarka,


I just wanted to say "Thank You" for the information you share so freely on your website, Magpie Gemstones.



I have been making jewelry, on and off, for a little over 4 decades and recently I've picked up my jewelry tools and beads again. I have to say, I have not seen anyone so giving of themselves anywhere or at anytime in all these years, share such pertinent information. There really is something for everyone throughout your website, no matter what a person thinks they know!



At the moment I am going over your articles for selling jewelry on-line and I'm very pleased with them. It seems you have quite a knack for all of it, you have covered all your bases and it's just a complete circle. You are a "stand-up" person with rare qualities and morals, which is something many lack these days. I hope all of that becomes infectious and spreads to all who read your articles and purchase any of your products.


Once again Szarka, thank you for everything you are doing and have done. You are truly an asset to society!
