Announcement    On November 8, 2018, my home and jewelry studio were destroyed by the Camp Fire in Paradise, California. My husband and I were able to get out quickly with our dog and little else. We have since relocated and are slowly rebuilding our lives. For me, this means returning to what I love -- making jewelry.

With the help of CERF+ and many very generous friends in the jewelry making community, I am now able to reopen my shop. I have been working hard creating some new jewelry that I hope you will like. Thank you for your support and heartfelt messages.

I will be donating 10% of my sales to CERF+ to help them assist other artists who have experienced devastating losses.

*********************************************************************************************

Whether you are shopping for yourself or looking for a gift, all items are ready to ship. All items will be in a decorative box suitable for gift giving, but I will sometimes combine items in boxes to help keep shipping costs low. I try to add new items daily, so visit often for the best selection.

All items will ship USPS First Class to US locations. Estimated arrival time is 2 - 3 days. Orders outside of the US will ship International First Class. Delivery times will vary by location.

Jewelry -- my life revolves around the beauty and sparkle of gemstones and the luster of freshwater pearls. I work in my home studio, with my dog nestled at my feet.

This is a one-of-a-kind labradorite & obsidian intarsia pendant necklace.
Special labradorite stones in these currently one-of-kind earrings. I don't know if I'll make another pair or not.

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.
