Truly minimalist and very lovely! Nicely made and adorable. Arrived well packaged and on time. The jade is a pretty pale yellow just like the picture. Thank you!

Please DISREGARD the negative review I previously posted bc it was a "fluke" regarding something that possibly happened during shipping, & I was able to "fix" the problem. It appears that The Seller was not at fault. She responded to my review, and seemed to care very much that I was unhappy with this purchase, this goes a LONG WAY with me, as a customer🙂. The poor review I gave was based on an issue that has been completely taken care of by cleaning off debris These earrings now look exactly as the description & pictures depicted, online, when I fell in love with them . I will definitely purchase items from "vicktorian" in the future.

So many shades of green are represented in these long gemstone cluster earrings!

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.

I 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.
