Fans of Bead Pod 327...
cannot speak highly enough of the craftsmanship and service afforded by
this wonderful jewelry designer. While on vacation, I bumped into
Marcia at an "Arts on the Docks" night in Ocean City, MD. I found a
necklace that I loved, but wanted a longer chain. She actually went the
next mile to make this necklace work for me, and mailed it to me at my
home in Pennsylvania. Love, love, love her designs and dedication to

"Marcia's work continues to stun and amaze me and now that I own my
first Cupschalk handcrafted beauty, I'm pondering a commission! I have to
say her jewelry is not only gorgeous, but pleasantly comfortable,
natural and easy to coordinate with daily life. I've never been a big
jewelry wearer, but Marcia's art makes me feel great when I wear it! With each piece being unique and handcrafted, I
know there will never be a necklace like mine and with the lifetime
warranty; I'll always have a unique piece of jewelry for years to come.
If you haven't seen these one-of-a-kind pieces of art - I highly
recommend you trying one on...you will never take it off...just like me!
Now, my stone agate, double stranded necklace with agate pendant
absolutely screams my
name when I put it on, however I've been drooling over her Kumihimo
Braided knockouts! This is an artform in the weaving alone, yet with the
embellishments and unique patterns Marcia is able to work into the
pieces...WOW, just beautiful. Talk about taking a functional piece of
history and kicking it up a notch. These pieces are so light to the
touch you won't even know you've worn it all day and just imagine the
conversations it will start! I can't wait to own my very own Kumihimo
Braided - Cupschalk original!!!"

Dear Bead Pod327,
wanted to take this opportunity to let
you know how much I love the jewelry I purchased from you this past
autumn! I wasn't familiar with the term 'Kumihimo' so I really
appreciated you taking the time to tell me about this Japanese braiding
technique along with the gemstones, fossils and unusual focal points you
select for each piece. Your attention to detail, especially the
intricacy of your Kumihimo braiding, is a show stopper! Wearing Bead Pod
327 one-of-a-kind designer pieces makes me feel special.
I want to thank you for going above and beyond with your customer
service. You really took the time to answer my questions and tell me how
to best care for my necklace and bracelet. I've liked you on Facebook
and I can't wait to see (and buy) some more of your wearable art!
You've got a raving fan in Pennsylvania!
I have enjoyed wearing Marcia's jewelry for several years. I am in awe
of the intricacy and of the fine detail and beautiful execution of each
and every little coil and swirl and the obvious love and care woven into
those amazing Kumihimo cords!
I cannot thank you enough for creating such unique and wonderful works of art that I can cherish and wear for years to come!

Marcia's work is truly wonderful. I had a very
specific idea of what type of jewelry I wanted for my June 2013 wedding,
and I simply could not find anything in stores or online that fulfilled
my vision. I contacted Marcia, and after several thoughtful emails
back and forth, she custom made several completely unique designs for me
to choose from for both our rehearsal dinner and the wedding itself.
Everything was beautifully customized and one-of-a-kind. I ultimately
chose a pair of earrings and a matching bracelet for the rehearsal
dinner, and another pair of gorgeous statement earrings for the wedding.
I received so many compliments on all of the items! The craftsmanship
is truly excellent, and so is Marcia's attention to detail and her eye
for beauty. I am so grateful to have had the perfect wedding jewelry,
especially knowing that no one else will ever have pieces quite like
mine! I will certainly be purchasing more jewelry from Marcia in the
future. Thank you so much, Marcia and Bead Pod 327!!
