Dear Nigel, I meant to come back to you before this but forgot, but never too late. I am just a rather spasmodic amateur beader, the beneficiaries of this being  largely family and friends.  But I thought you might like to know that I have always been fully satisfied with the beads I have purchased from you and that you are now my only source of beads as your range is so comprehensive.  I am at one with you also in regard to Theresa May’s power beads – they are like here – hollow!!
Kind Regards, Lana

My beads arrived more quickly than I expected and I am very pleased with them, thank you.

I have bought several things from you in the past and have always been very satisfied with your service and the quality of your beads.

I look forward to using my discount code!   Kind regards,  Penny


From where I am here in southern USA, I love your products. I love the way you give meanings and descriptions. I use them paraphrased a lot when I give or sell a piece of my jewelry and find that folks love knowing about their piece of jewelry; the lore and history of the gems. The quality of gems and pearls you all have sold me have all been great quality and come with great service. Long way to ship your products but I always get them in about two weeks. Not bad!!  So, I guess all of this is live and learn; at least that’s how I try to look at it so I don’t make the same mistake/judgement twice! What I’m trying to say with all these words is thank you for providing this beader and jewelry maker with great quality and good service from across “the pond”! It is so obvious that you put all you have into your business and in my opinion, it is wonderful. Happy New Year to you and your family and to all beaders! Cynthia

The beads arrived safe and sound and in only about 10 days - and they are absolutely beautiful.  They have already been strung, worn and complimented.  Thank you for an excellent product at a great price.  I will definited re-order from you again, as well as recommend you to others.

Regards, Virginia


Beads arrived safely in Inverness this morning and as usual they are really absolutely stunning.  I'm going to have some very happy customers (if I can bear to part with some of them!).    Melanie

Hello Nigel, Thank you for your offer.  I have purchased from you a few years ago but I couldn't go past the beads I have recently purchased - they are beautiful.  Many thanks. Dorothy

I recieved my beads safe and sound, arrived quickly about 7th november. Stunning quality as always, absolutely beautiful. I will be ordering from you in the morning. Just putting together my wish list.

More than worth the wait.    Elaine

You are really doing well with your buying and everyone I meet has said that they love the different designs I do using your beads.  I was with many other jewellery stalls on Sunday both on the street and inside where I was, but I don't think that the others got the compliments I did and people were spending £100 a shot with me on 4 items that they will treasure.  Lorraine

I have always been delighted with my purchases, and so pleased that Mr. Bead does from time to time offers free delivery, this means that I can order just a few more items. The newsletters are very informative and interesting. Lubna

I have just scoured your website for the first time after buying from you at Haydock Park.  The choice of beads is amazing, fantastic, beautiful beads.  I will certainly buy again.     Patricia

I have been very pleased with the quality and price of the freshwater pearls i have purchased from you. I also have been happy in that, so far, the delivery has been quite fast! Thank you    Penny.

 Hello! I'm a customer for a couple of years now and I can say that your products are constantly of the best quality and these are most often unique! And what a choice! I also appreciate to have this feeling «that somebody is there for me» despite of the web conditions: when I have a problem I contact Nigel! Your online store has his own personality. It's always a pleasure to deal with you! please keep on! Sorry, for the errors; I'm a Frenchspeaking lady from Québec, Canada!     Danielle

Thank you for your follow-up letter to my order from your store. The order did arrive safely and I am very happy with the quality of the beads. They are lovely. I'm very pleased with the quality of the merchandise, the pricing, and your shipping procedures.   I will certainly keep your store information handy for future purchases.  Thank you, and I hope you have a profitable and enjoyable year in 2012.      Mike

Good value products, well packed and sent quickly.   Good site to browse for jewellery goodies.   Will continue to look at website when I want beads etc.

Thank you, Nigel!  I think you have one of the best-run websites....very
easy to use.  Nice products.  You must also be the hardest working web-guy
out there too!         Carmen

Many thanks for the wonderful beads, of course they are really super, as always. I don't think I have ever received anything other than first quality.
Looking forward to buying again soon.   Sue

The beads were wonderful, great quality. I will certainly be ordering more in the very near future.  Margaret

Just to let you know that we are very happy with our purchase and would like to add that what you see IS what you get. Well impressed, and will be back, soon. Once again many thanks.   GCF

I am very happy with your goods,quick delivery and helping if there is a problem,thanks to you I even learnt using my computer useful.I read your book,it is clear and helpful.But to get/borrow a maschine from the bank for credit-cards is very expensive in England.So are the tables at the fair.And at the moment there are to much jewellers.PS:My order7497 arrived and the beads are beautiful.       cecilia

Mr.Bead is one of my favourite shops online. Prices are really good, information about the meaning of each gem is very nice, fast delivery often free !! Spectacular !
thank you, Mr. Nigel !    Gabriela

I was very impressed with my order and in fact as soon as I opened it I placed another order as a gift for a friend. Thank you for offering this site, it's what I've been searching for!    Leila

Many thanks for the absolutely lovely items you sent! the beads are stunning. I will definitely be placing another order but not at present, as had to dish out a small fortune for my darling cat who is seriously ill!   Lubna

I love your beads. The pictures are wonderful and I have been very satisfied with all of my purchases. The delivery time is usually shorter than quoted so that is always a plus. I have looked for other online bead stores but so far none of them are as great as yours. Thanks so much for all the great items.    Terry

You prices are good as is your product. Was happy with my first purchase, that is why I am back again.   Martha

Just to say that my friend Karen and I think your beads are vibrant, exciting and the best money can buy.
Karen makes gorgeous necklaces with your beads!  It is a great help when we receive your special offers!    Charlotte

I was shocked how quickly the goods arrived.  It is always a risk buying online but I needn't have worried. Great quality beads, some unusual and they matched the picture on the web site. It is going to be such a pleasure working with the beads.     Jane

My parcel arrived today, I can't believe how quick it arrived from Hong Kong, I've had goods take longer coming from down the road.  As to the beads themselves there was not one item that I was disappointed with and that is rare buying online. The quality is superb and I particularly like the web agates and the larimar beads.  I look forward to shopping with you again.    Linda

'm a first time customer with Mr Bead, and when I had a question, I e-mailed them and got a personal e-mail back very quickly. The service is very good.   Jade

Today I received this order I pretty fast :D and I was so excited!
Really, the beads are wonderful! Especially the graduated rainbow Turquoise!!!
Ty so much.....I immediately ordered one more! :D great collection of stones you have, my compliments!     karinka

The first lot have arrived, and are wonderful. I think that your website is excellent and, as an absolute beginner in all
this, I love reading your Newsletters and learning more about the beads.   Elspeth

The stones as close to the pictures as possible, and the speed of delivery is excellent.  On the one occasion, i returned something it was made very easy and i received a refund almost immediately  Excellent service.    David

I am quite astonished by your service - it is exceptionally good - and so fast!  My string of pearls arrived safely this morning (Friday), well packaged and in perfect condition.  They are just beautiful and I am delighted with them, thank you very much indeed. Thank you also for the £5.00 discount voucher - what a lovely surprise (smile).  I will go immediately to leave you five star feedback - and shall certainly recommend you to my friends - your entire service is impecable.

I love the prices; I love the products and the coupons. And considering the distance they have to travel, I get things from you amazingly quickly! Thanks!    Vicki

Thank you for the speed in which you get out the items to me. I tell all of my "beading buddy's" about your wonderful website.  Your's are the very nicest quality and your prices not too high.Because your "things" are of such good quality, I am able to put out beautiful items. Thank you so much. Arleen

Nigel, I received the beads on Tuesday, October 14th, a mere week after you mailed them.  Amazingly quick delivery!  The beads are SO beautiful.  I am so happy with my purchase.  I can hardly wait to create some magnificent piece of jewelry with them!  Thanks again for such prompt, friendly service!  I look forward to purchasing more beads from you again.  Warm Regards, Tamara

i was so excited to get your package yeterday. i think that makes it about 6 days or less which is great. the beads are wonderful and exactly what i was looking for in a supplier. thankyou and i look forward to ordering many more... cristl meaker

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my first order I received this past week.  The quality of the stones are wonderful!!  I received the order very quickly (quicker than some orders I placed the same day here in the states!). I am going to place my second order as soon as I am finished writing this.  You have a very happy customer here...and I look forward to doing much more business with you in the future.

Thank you for your great products and outstanding service!     Elizabeth

Excellent beads exactly like advertised and such wonderful attention to any order.  Instant trust and reliability.  Delighted I found Mr. Bead as there is no need to look elsewhere.  The Best!    Shirley Kussner

Excellent quality!! I was stunned when I looked at everything. Very fast shipping. Order was accurate. I took a big chance ordering so much from you and it really paid off.  You will be my only source from now on.      Cynthia Tardiff 

I love the store  Not only are the prices fair and competitive, there is an absolute wealth of knowledge that is shared there. PLUS, the shipping is so fast, a person would think the items were mailed from the next city over. I am truly a satisfied customer!!    Gail

Just wanted to say how pleased I am to do business with your company! Your customer service is above average and I was made to feel as tho' no matter what $ amount I spent that my order was important and that you value me as a customer. VERY IMPORTANT! You know - 1 dissatisfied customer tells everyone they talk to but when one IS satisfied they don't always say so but I AM SAYING SO! Thank you so very much and I look forward to doing more business with you.
Thank you again - Bonnie Hammond     BDangles

Hello Nigel - I received my order from you a couple of days ago and I'm extremely pleased!! Everything is exactly as it appears in the online catalog and I can hardly wait to design pieces around these beads (even the colors are exact)! They are sure to be a big hit!

Thank you again - Bonnie Hammond  BDangles

I very much enjoyed shopping your site. It is well organized and easy to use. I also felt secure shopping your site because you had me create an account name, password and your site showed the name of the secure site and how long it would take to ship items. Thanks Nigel!    Ty or Mary Bahr

I stumbled upon the Mr.Bead website after going through many other sites which were either hard to order from, hard to navigate, or too expensive. Mr. Bead had better quality stones- which were generally at better prices. The site has a nice selection and is easy to navigate as well. I also recieved great communication about my order (the US postal xmas rush caused problems for my shipping). Ordering from Mr. Bead was an overall good experience and I've already done it again; Thanks for the great service!    Katie

Quality service, great product, highly recommend.  Surprised at how fast my beads came and know I will be ordering more.  Have kept your address  for friends.  My new necklace is going to be sooo unique and I know everyone will ask me where I got it (and to think I will have made it with your beads!!)  This time I am happy to write a comment on a product.  I was so completely surprised with the quality and service. 5-star plus!!!!       Shirley

I received my order from Hong Kong and am delighted with the beautiful, jade beads.  I am also impressed by your speedy service, which proved quicker than some UK suppliers!     Pat

I just fell in Love with all your gems, beads, and antiques with affordable prices, just Fantastic.  It is a joy shopping in your stores because I can buy more with my money!  I know you have to charge for shipping due to gas prices(at least here in USA) going so high, but the prices help keep cost down for us.  Thank You so Much,  Janie

Your site is easy to navigate and you have a very streamlined purchasing system.
It is the smoothest transaction I've yet to make on the internet - it can't be any simpler. Well done!     Angelo

I buy beads all over the place (well Indonesia, USA, and ebay!)and you are my very best source. The quality of the beads is really superb, the prices are good and the delivery and communication brilliant.  I think you should be told as often as poss.!  SHEENA

I was desperate to find true red potato pearls for my nieces bridesmmaid jewelery and you were the only bead outlet that could give me the quiality i need for such an important jewelery order.    Karin

Nigel Hi. Thankyou for letting me know the beads are shipped. I have really been searching and buying on ebay recently for materials for  my jewellery and after recieving quite a lot can tell you your quality and service are both excellent. After shopping around I am quite happy to do alot of my on line buying with you in the future.    Thanks Again Mandy

Thank you for the speed in which you get out the items to me. I tell all of my "beading buddy's" about your wonderful website.  Your's are the very nicest quality and your prices not too high. Because your "things" are of such good quality, I am able to put out beautiful items. Thank you so much. Arleen

I want to let you know that I was impressed with the quality of the items you carry and that I  feel that the prices make them a good value!  Nan

If I haven'e already bought from all of your sites I likely will - the beads and pearls are gorgeous, as illustrated, and very good value.  And "Nigel" responds to my comments and is a sweetheart!  Susan

I love the selection, the quick mailing time to Canada, and how fast my emails and questions were replied to!  Definitely a site to recommend to others!  June

I am pleased with your timely delivery and like the beads. I have ordered more. I am interested in purchasing more gaspeite slab strains. Can you save two for me when you get more in? Thank you    Anne

Just love your products and the prices are fantastic!!   Lylah

You have a wonderful selection and unusual.   Janice

Thanks, the rutilated quartz and moonstone beads are beautiful!  If you ever have round labradorite or rainbow moonstone in the 6-10 mm range, let me know.  Morgen

The beads did indeed arrive much more promply than thought they would.  Everything is lovely, thank you.  And Thank you for the voucher.  I will be returing to your site within a few days to make more purchases.

 Take Care.


I love it that you give info about stones. The items are beautifully photographed and easy to access. I have purchased many items and will continue to be a repeat customer! Your beads are excellent value too!

My first order arrived today.  I am impressed with the speed at which it was delivered - only 8 days.

I am also impressed with the quality of the beads that were sent.  They are beautiful!  You have a new customer.  Thank you!  I will be ordering again.

Best regards, 

Your product is of good quality. My orders arrive quickly considering how far they come. The web site & ordering are quite easy to navigate. I appreciate the unusual beads you offer. In general, I very much enjoy doing business with you! Thank You!     Diana
