Even better in person, and the mesh tip makes it glide on your device.

Fabulous - highly recommend to anyone as a cell phone accessory as a "must have"!

I had difficulties using my cell phone since I have arthritis in my fingers. I knew the ergonomic stylus existed however, found that they were always in 2 pieces (the "thin" stylus & a separate gripper to attach) that looked boring & bland & difficult to operate or even to be able to attach the gripper. This stylus is absolutely perfect - it is "nubby" & easy for me to grasp & hold and they come in so many colorful styles & have interchangeable tips. I am now able to use my cell phone with ease. Absolutely love it!

Love it! Mari was helpful in making a cane catcher that would fit my large carved cane and it works perfectly

Brilliant item, well made and very functional, does everything I need it to do but also other things I didn’t even know I needed!
Wonderful seller with incredible attention to detail, also very easy to communicate with.
I cannot recommendation this enough.

I am so overly impressed with this seller. The transaction was extremely smooth and fast. Product was exactly what was advertised. I bought 3 in different patterns and all were great. Thank you Mari for everything. I have put you as a favorite seller. I highly recommend shopping here.
MadeByMari is the Shop Where Fun Meets Function - All Handmade by Mari
I have ALWAYS been a crafter and have ALWAYS loved color. Later in life we moved from northern to southern (Medford) Oregon. While working in an office for a state agency, I decided to start making soap (which I have now retired) and started craft fairs on weekends. What an eye-opener compared to being a public servant!
So after retirement, I made crafting my full-time "job" and never looked back.
In 2008 I opened my Etsy shop: MadeByMari is my Etsy name.
During COVID, no returns, exchanges, or shipping to other countries. Sorry, but that's the way it is.
You'll find all of my items (including my US PATENTED "Cane Catcher" cane straps) in the "Items" section on my home page. Just click on each section to see what I've added lately.
And yes, I do handcraft everything myself. If my computer or computerized sewing machine hiccups, though, I do call in my husband for support!
Now go back and look at my shop! I find it easy to go ITEMS to see each type of craft at a time. That ITEMS category listing is over to the left of my pictures, up toward the top of them. It's nice that all Etsy shops are set up the same.
And if you can't find what you want, just click CONTACT ME anywhere in my shop. I'm always willing to "talk" with you via Etsy's email there.
For my tie-in on Facebook here's that link. I try to list all my new items.
This link will get you back to the shop. Thanks for reading!

I like colors and I like using my hands to create. I take pride in what makes it to my Etsy shop. I want to share my crafts with you and show that my items really do combine FUN and FUNction. Enjoy!
A husband is always there to furnish a smile and a hand when you are going crazy! He'll help me get things to the post office on time, or sometimes run the serger. He's my only helper.
► I make these all of my items by hand and have been selling them successfully for over 20 years. No exposed seams on Neck Coolers. No rough edges. Check the positive feedback comments from my previous customers.
► I ship wherever our Postal Service will send. My shipping is calculated by the US Postal Service according to where you live. I do add a nominal amount for materials.
►INTERNATIONAL: Remember if you are out of the US, your Customs can and may hold back any package for any length of time. It is out of my hands once it is out of the US. Contact your local Post Office.
► INTERNATIONAL: Value Added Tax (VAT) or Customs charges are the responsibility of the buyer. I DO NOT PAY THEM FOR YOU.
► For multiple or orders with different shipping names or other special details, I will coordinate a reasonable due date, list them for your approval, and ask for 100% hard goods and labor prepayment so I can have all supplies ready for your job. When ready to ship, I will list the shipping as the only cost. Thanks for understanding this.
► Although I try for my photos to have accurate coloration, all monitors can show colors differently.
► Choose wisely. With the rising cost of my items and the relatively high cost of all shipping carriers, the only refunds I want to make are if I make an obvious mistake in sending you the wrong item. Did I send the wrong size crochet hook than the one you ordered? My items are generally not breakable and I wrap well. If you have a problem, please CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY per the links in my shop ("Contact Me"). I'm happy to offer a fair resolution for you.
► Enjoy my shop. If you have questions, CONTACT ME via Etsy. I want you to be happy with your choices.

► If you need an item rushed to you other than First Class Mail or Priority Mail, CONTACT ME and I will quote you the shipping cost, then list a Custom Reserved Order for extra postage so you can pay that extra and I can ship it out right away.
► If I have to delay a shipment for any reason, I will let you know ahead of time.
► Remember that if your postal rates seem excessively high, I do not set them. I use the US Postal charts, and add in just a small handling charge for shipping materials and transportation to the Post Office.
