About Pam Older


Visit our Shop at 42 Merrimac St. Newburyport, MA

Watching Pam in her studio/shop, enthusiastically collaborating with customers to realize their visions is half the magic of wearing Pam Older Designs. One visit and Pam's love for her work is evident. Her adventure in the creative world began as an apprentice at a small silver shop in Coconut Grove, Florida while she was a student at The University of Miami. After graduating college with a BFA in Painting, she moved to New York City and worked at Redbook Magazine in the production department. Pam went on to spearhead the print production and technology operations at Children's Television Workshop and Time Magazine. At the venerable New Yorker Magazine her creative thinking brought radical change in the form of technology to speed the pages to press allowing later deadlines and more current topical news for the editors.

In 2002 while she was searching for a new career using her creative side, she began making jewelry again and her passion was reignited. Being a former painter, her color and design skills come through in her jewelry, but her palette are gemstones instead of paint. Pam Older Designs was launched in 2003 with her fashionable,organic and feminine collection.

Pam was also featured in Oprah Magazine in a story about personal reinvention and reinventing he self as a designer.  

“I am inspired by my customers and never tire of learning from them. My most inspired designs come to me after listening to what they love. I am constantly amazed at the close connections we quickly make with each other. It's this aspect of having a jewelry shop that I love most.”
