About Pam



Come visit our NEW JEWELRY SHOP- Pam Older Designs at  42 Merrimac Street in downtown Newburyport, MA!


While in college, Pam Older apprenticed at a jewelry shop in Coconut Grove, Florida. Later, she moved to New York City and a publishing career ensued with stints at Esquire, Children's Television Workshop, Time and The New Yorker. Her jewelry making was left behind until she rediscovered a passion for beaded jewelry in 2002 and started Pam Older Designs in 2003. Pam's jewelry design style is organic, feminine and classic with a modern twist. Pam's jewelry also appears in the SUNDANCE CATALOG.

Pam has been featured in Oprah Magazine and profiled in an article about passionate New Yorkers in the Westchester Wag. She is often an Editor's Pick in Westchester Magazine. In 2013 she was national runner-up in About.com's Reader's Choice Contest for the Best Handmade Jewelry Designer.
