Pam Older started out as an apprentice as a silversmith at a shop in Coconut Grove,Florida while in college pursuing her BFA. Later she moved to New York City and a publishing career ensued. Pam worked at Esquire, Children's Television Workshop, Time and The New Yorker leaving her jewelry work behind. She rediscovered a passion for beaded jewelry and a new career took shape, resulting in the launch of Pam Older Designs in 2004. Pam's jewelry design style is organic, feminine and modern. Many of her pieces are in the SUNDANCE CATALOG. 

“I am so inspired by women and never tire of learning about my customers. My most inspired design ideas come to me after listening to what they love and who they are.  I am constantly amazed at the close connections women quickly make with each other.”- Pam Older
