I just listed this beautiful pearl necklace. It's super long -- no clasp. Put it right over your head & wrap it for a 2-strand look.
These little beauties are back in the shop today: chrome diopside & London blue topaz.
Subtle in coloration, these brand new earrings feature champagne quartz & green amethyst. Lovely, elegant & understated.

About

Beautiful . Hand Crafted . High Quality . Wearable

Orion Designs was created in 1997, when I was new to Alaska and anxious to earn my living in a creative way. I had taken a basic bead stringing class before moving here and loved the journey it helped me begin.

After many classes and lots of experimentation on my own, my style has evolved. And I expect it to continue to evolve. The jewelry I create brings joy to those who wear it. I use high quality materials, yet offer a product line that is as affordable as it is wearable.

So many of my customers have been on this journey with me and continue to purchase jewelry for themselves and as gifts for others. It is important for me to offer my customers new items frequently. I want them to feel good about how they look and feel. Jewelry from Orion Designs is a big step in that direction.

We relocated to northern California in 2017 and still live in a cozy little house nestled in the woods, with my jewelry studio contained within. My husband Rick is also a jewelry designer. Our Giant Schnauzer, Jet rounds out the family.

I feel so fortunate to be able to make a living doing such fun stuff every single day.
