About

The story of Magpie Gemstones

This started in 1998 when Szarka met Ky. Two very tired social workers who needed a huge change. They started with a couple hundred dollars worth of beads and wire. Selling jewelery and gemstones wherever they could (as they were living on the road) they invested every cent they had to spare into more beads and supplies. They built a fully self contained school bus with solar panels, painted it pink and named it Floyd. They would offer their wares in the Pacific Northwest spring through fall, For the winters, they would go to the Arizona desert, mainly Quartzsite and Tucson.

After their daughter turned 4, it was time to settle down. They sold the bus and put some gemstones on the internet for sale. Eventually that turned into www.magpiegemstones.com, www.turquoisemagpie.com, www.szarkas.com, and recently here on Etsy.

Integrity, honesty, compassion; these are the guides here at Magpie Gemstones.

As a jewelry designer you want to know what you are selling to your customers. We disclose all treatments to stones such as being dyed, stabilized, or heat enhanced to the best of our ability and knowledge. We have been in the trade for years and we make it our business to stay abreast of current treatments and procedures.

We ensure that the gems are of the best quality for the price because we take pride and a lot of effort to hand pick the finest beads. We do not just choose a stone and let the vendor fill our order. If we must order beads from a distributor to fill a custom order we will send back any beads that do not meet our high quality standards. It is hard to buy online and not see gemstones in person and we understand that. I attempt to be my client's eyes so they can be assured they are getting good quality.

As a bead buyer you want to know you are getting the best price and that the beads you purchased will get to you quickly and that they will be what you want them to be. All products at Turquoise Magpie Gemstones have a money back guarantee.
Additional policies and FAQs
Do you have a disclaimer?

Yes, there is a disclaimer. While every effort is made to have accurate treatment and size information, this information is not guaranteed to be accurate 100% of the time and is for information purposes only.

Sometimes we make mistakes in inventory and if we are out of stock on an item you will be refunded the full purchase price.
