Who am I?

Welcome to Homegrown Gems - Handmade Jewelry

Who creates and designs everything you see here? Me! Marie!

*★* Marie Dyson lives in the small town of Surprise, Arizona with her 5 year old son, and 1.5 year old baby girl. Up until 2007, Marie worked as a software engineer in the aerospace industry. During that time, she practiced jewelry and bead making as a hobby. Following the birth of her son, Marie chose to become a full-time stay-at-home mom...a calling she considers to be "the best job ever!"

Being a stay-at-home mother has allowed Marie much more time to practice, perfect and expand her skill in making handmade jewelry. Marie's creative passion is in making custom lampwork glass beads and one-of-a-kind jewelry. Her styles range from rustic and organic to refined and elegant. Expanding on her jewelry business she started designing paper earring cards to display her jewelry, once she discovered a separate market for her cards the business just grow from there!

♥ ♥ ♥ My husband passed away suddenly Dec. 21, 2011. I can't say enough wonderful things about him as a man, father and husband. Tears are shed daily for him. He wrote my profile here on Etsy for me, just one of the 1000's of things he did to support me in all that I did. He often helped me give creative names to my jewelry, praised my work and just supported me 100%. Thank You to the love of my life I miss you beyond words but know I am going to make it because of the love and support you provide myself and our family. I love you Jay! - Love Marie ♥ ♥ ♥

Additional policies and FAQs
~~ About My Quality & Materials ~~
I try to clearly state in each listing the exact materials and metals used, I most use sterling silver, gold filled and copper. However I do also use some lead free pewter items. I will ALWAYS state this clearly in the listing. I use the highest quality beading wire and carefully test all pieces when finished.

★ SATISFACTION: I guarantee you will be satisfied with my beads, full refunds given if you contact me within 7 days of receiving the beads!
