Master craftsman and jewelry designer, Robin Hepburn, established Orion Jewelry in 1986 in lush, tropical Tillett Gardens, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.
Three hurricanes and ten years later she relocated her studio to the town where she was born, Pennington, New Jersey.
Robin's passion for nature cultivated during her ten years living in the Caribbean is found throughout her work. In addition, Robin credits the art, architecture, and jewelry of Egypt, North-West Africa, Greece and Mycenae as inspiration for her designs.
Today, her jewelry designs still evoke the playful spirit and simple serenity of the Islands she loves. Sculptural forms and rare gemstones fuse to create hallmark pieces that are at once elegant and exotic. Robin's one-of-a-kind pieces incorporate precious, semi-precious, and museum quality gem stones with high karat gold and sterling silver. Designed and handcrafted exclusively by Robin herself, all Orion jewelry conforms to the highest quality standards. Keeping with her lifelong dedication to fair trade practices and protecting the future, all Orion jewelry is made using 100% recycled and refined metals and ethically-sourced gemstones.
