Announcement    I am donating 10% of my sales to CERF+ (also known as The Artist's Safety Net cerfplus.org). They helped me to reopen my shop and restart my business after the Camp Fire destroyed my home and jewelry studio in November, 2018.


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.

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.
