Designed to Inspire, Handcrafted with Love

I have always been passionate about jewelry and design. Because of my love for natural stones/materials and the desire to create beautiful and affordable jewelry, I began designing and making jewelry for myself 15 years ago. Many requests came in for necklaces, bracelets and earrings for friends and family...and soon friends of friends and complete strangers were requesting items. It was so much fun.....I was hooked.
After a couple of years and with the support of my incredible husband and three amazing kids, an unexpected business blossomed. Initially, it was called Terra Designs. That name never rang true for me. Then I had a "God Wink" moment and "Genesis One Designs" was born.
For 10 years I focused my business on creating items with natural and semi-precious stones. I have had designs featured in local boutiques, event "swag bags" and on several blogs. I was also asked to design for a new jewelry catalog based company. It was fun...but something was missing. I was feeling overwhelmed and underwhelmed all at the same time and I was very close to calling it quits. Fortunately, my incredible customers and family encouraged me to continue.
I'm so very thankful for their advice. Because in 2012, the most fulfilling part of owning a jewelry business was introduced when hand-stamped metal jewelry caught my eye. The joy I get when creating special and meaningful personalized pieces for others cannot be measured. I was even commissioned (by a cast member's mom) to create 150 keychains for the cast and crew of the television show "Parenthood"....that was amazing and surreal! As fantastic as that was, my favorite moments are during art shows and markets, hearing stories of how Genesis One Designs jewelry has touched lives. THAT is why I do what I do. It is truly a gift from God. Watching grieving mothers get emotional when they see their child's life verse on a necklace or bracelet brings a kind of joy and thankfulness that is difficult to explain. And I praise God for that.
All that I am, all that I do is because of Him.
I love my job and I especially adore my supporters!
Thanks to all of you for bringing "Handcrafted" into the forefront of the retail industry! Shopping small is what it's all about! :)

Thank you for shopping Genesis One Designs! I began designing and creating jewelry over 15 years ago for my own personal enjoyment. It quickly became a passion. Now, what began as a hobby, has turned into a fulfilling career and God gets all of the praise for that!
There are so many aspects of my job that bring me joy...but more than anything else, that joy comes from the opportunities I am given to touch others' hearts and bring some happiness through a personalized gift.

~Every personalized item offered by Genesis One Designs is created from raw metal and is hand stamped by me. At times the letters may have slight variations in depth, alignment, and spacing. This is part of the nature of the piece and it’s what makes them unique and special. These small imperfections will NOT compromise the overall look of your piece. I love creating jewelry, and am quite a perfectionist, so I do my best to meet your expectations.

Unless noted, all of my necklaces and bracelets are finished with polished stainless steel chain and findings (clasps and jump rings). I prefer using stainless steel because it is durable, hypo-allergenic, will not tarnish and is a FANTASTIC, lovely, lower cost alternative to sterling silver. My stainless steel components have been designed by me and special ordered direct from the manufacturer. No middle-man. I love that I am able to pass these savings on to you. :)

~~~Caring for your Personalized Genesis One Designs Jewelry~~~

You can prolong the life of your lovely pieces by following these practices:

Remove your jewelry before using any product that contains chemicals and especially before swimming in chlorinated water. These chemicals will break down the alloys in the metal and may leave the surface with pits or a dull finish. Avoid direct contact with perfumes and lotions as they may also affect the finish. Over time (with the exception of stainless steel components), oxygen exposure will produce a natural patina (especially to sterling silver, copper and brass). You can remove this patina by using the polishing cloth provided.

Aluminum is a very light weight and soft metal, everyday wear may cause small scratches over time, but nothing that is very noticeable.

Your jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off in the evening.
