About

Are you looking for silver jewelry that will not tarnish and is great for sensitive skin?

You are in the right place!  Welcome to Loralyn Designs.  Here you will find a wide selection of handmade stainless steel jewelry and unique gift items for both men and women.  Stainless steel is a great silver alternative.  Unlike silver, it will not tarnish and it is not susceptible to scratches, dings or dents. Stainless is also a great alternative for people that have skin reactions with other types of metals.

About the Owner

Hi, My name is Laura King. I am the owner, designer, accountant and graphic designer for Loralyn Designs and loving every minute of it!   I have always loved silver jewelry and how different accessories can truly compliment an outfit but hated opening up my jewelry drawer and realizing I couldn't wear something because it was tarnished.  Over time, I would stop wearing those tarnished pieces until there are a bunch that you decide it is time to polish, sound familiar?

A true New Englander, I was born, raised and still live in Massachusetts, USA. I am thankful to have had a mom that encouraged crafting and creativity from an early age. She taught me the beauty of handmade items from sewing to painting and drawing, gift wrapping, jewelry making, and home decorations. At age 8, I was selling my jewelry door to door (OK, I was selling my fashion plate color drawings too). At 13, my mom invited me to join her in selling my 3D plastic canvas Christmas ornaments. I remember being awestruck by my mom and the fact that she was willing to sell my items next to hers. Funny, I still have a few of those ornaments I put on my tree every year.

Quite a few years later, I branched out to woodworking and home improvement. Love my tools!  One day after polishing some silver jewelry, I was down at my workbench and picked up some screws and nuts.  Realizing many of my parts were hand me downs over the years, there were a few that still looked brand spanking new.  I'm sure you can guess what they were made out of, stainless steel.   That one moment is when the idea for Loralyn Designs was born and I have never looked back!
