About Us
Handmade Designer Jewelry with Gemstones....that is what we are about, that is what we do, and that is how we define what we love to do.

I do not know if it is just "a woman thing" or what, but as far back as I can remember anything "shinny and sparkly" caused a tingling sensation in my heart. After working 17 years in a law office and creating leaded glass windows and doors in my free time, I finally found the courage to leave my job at the law firm and pursue a more "creative" venture. After completing my first bracelet, I set aside my stained glass tools and began designing beaded jewelry. And I am still loving every minute of it! That was eleven years ago and Opal Moon was born. Opal Moon is me, Roe Smith. And in my small studio with my unconditionally loving cats at my feet, I design and create each piece of jewelry with love and gratitude for the opportunity to do what I love to do!

Please know that here at Opal Moon, my priority is for my customers to be thoroughly satisfied and totally thrilled with their purchase, or it can be returned within 10 days of your receipt and you will receive a full refund of your purchase price (less S/H/I).

My handcrafted mostly one-of-a-kind jewelry is intended to make women feel more beautiful and alive. Each piece of Opal Moon jewelry is created with an attention to detail and design, using the most unique gemstones, handmade artisan lampwork beads and components available. I am passionate about my work and motivated by the favorable responses from my loyal customers.

Opal Moon jewelry is created with precious and semi-precious gemstones, pearls, coral, crystal, glass, shell and handcrafted artisan lampwork beads. Sterling silver, high quality gold vermeil (22 to 24kt gold over sterling silver) gold filled, brass, copper and some solid gold components are the metals I use. Sometimes I incorporate vintage and antique pins, components, buttons and pendants into my designs. These are from my "Somewhere in Time Collection". You can be sure that here at Opal Moon you will be receiving a little bit of everything, jewelry that is sometimes fun and funky, many times delicate and dainty, occasionally earthy and warm, and always contemporary, classic and unique.

One further note, I LOVE to do custom work, so always know that I am available if there is something in particular that you desire.

Feel free to browse. I hope you enjoy yourself. Please contact me with any questions you may have and thank you for visiting Opal Moon.

P. S. Here are some recent testimonials that I received from customers:

Hi Roe,
I said I would let you know when the earrings arrived and then I was not feeling well and forgot to let you know they came the beginning of the week. I love them. I have come to really like green amethyst and I am so glad I bought these from you. Thank you for such a nice transaction.
Take care,
Sharon H.

Dear Roe,
The bracelet is absolutely gorgeous in real life, as are the earrings. I have the bracelet on right now as I write this! Those apatite stones would make a lovely drop earring set! Do you have any more of those stones? You've got me for sure!! One pretty thing leads to another!!

Needless to say, I am thrilled with these lovely pieces of jewelry. Once again, thank you so much.

Hi!! I'm so delighted with my earrings. They are gorgeous, and the
quality is super. I really didn't expect the "top parts" with the
marcasites to sparkle like they do. I will order from you again.

Hi Roe,
I received my package and LOVE LOVE LOVE all of my goodies. All the bracelets fit perfectly and everything is just beautiful!!!! You are certainly right about the eight strand bracelet - it is AWESOME! I wore the little moonstone flower earrings already and they are just so sweet. I'm never disappointed with my purchases from you Roe - you create the most beautiful wearable art that is fit to be treasured always. I so much appreciate all your hard work to restring the bracelets for me - they were worth the wait and more :-) I'll be back again soon…can't seem to get enough of your gorgeous bijou.
Warmest Regards,

Hi Roe, I am so impressed, the earrings arrived today, what lovely packaging and the earrings are outstanding, so much better than the pictures show. Thank you for the coupon, you are a treat to buy from. Thank you for such a pleasing transaction.
Take care

Hello again!
The earrings arrived today and they are so pretty! I love them. Roe, you packaged them so well it took me some time to open the box!
Thank you so much! You mentioned a while back something about a hamsa necklace you were trying to get material for. Is that still a possibility? Let me know! Once again, thank you for re-making these earrings. Wow! They really turned out lovely.
Best regards,

Hi Roe,
Hurray! The tourmaline necklace and earrings arrived today in my mail box safe and sound! And wow, they are lovely. The photos on line don't do this set justice. Really, really nice! Again you have made some very lovely jewelry. Thank you so much!

Hi Roe!
A note to let you know I received the topaz set yesterday and they are gorgeous. I love all of it!

Hi Roe,
The earrings just arrived!!!!!!! BEAUTIFUL!!! I Love the aquamarine stones!! Thank you so much! Your packaging with little extras make it even more so. I hope you are having a fun weekend.

Oh Roe! These earrings are wonderful! So much prettier, even
than the website photo. Another typical, classy job on your part!
I know I'm gonna love wearing them! Superb packaging for a $20 pair of earrings. Thanks again for the great price point on these lovelies.

Take care and "dream on"...........

Kindest regards,

Hi Roe,
I received the Chakra bracelet yesterday. It's so pretty and the presentation was too! Also, thanks for all the literature. I will definitely, keep my eye out for new stuff with my coupon. I also appreciate the fast delivery.
Warm Regards,

Hi Roe,
Just checking in. I wanted to let you know that I gave my sister a pair of your earrings for Christmas this year (double dangly pearls I call them) and she wears them every day. I didn't realize myself how beautiful the pearls were until she put them on. The colors are exquisite and they change every time she moves. My budget has been tight lately, but I thought you should know how much your jewelry is appreciated. God bless. Jeanne

Dear Roe,
I left one word at Ruby Lane, and I will repeat it here--EXQUISITE!! I see the phrase "to die for" used a lot, but applies to this necklace. And I got to open a package!! That happens *never*!!! A gift to me!! I will wear it tomorrow at Thanksgiving dinner to the envy of all.
Best, Arlene

Dear Roe,
I picked up my new necklace today, and what a beautiful surprise!
The colors and workmanship are exceptional, and the stones are of very high quality. I had been looking for a necklace with lapis stones for a long time, and I love the combination of blue, browns, and gray. Also, so many pieces out there are with silver, which I have some of too, but I prefer the gold. Thanks so much for including the pretty earrings to match. It was another nice surprise, as I am a smaller lady and prefer delicate jewelry to big, bold pieces. The pieces will look beautiful with the fall clothes!
Best wishes,

Hello Roe,

My package arrived and it is spectacular! I love the boxes and bows and the cute little hearts you sprinkled in with the jewelry. Every piece is more beautiful than the next...I adore them all! I showed them to Todd, my fiance, and he even gasped and said, "They're so beautiful and they're so Kate. These will be a family heirloom!"

Thank you for everything, Roe. We'll wear the pieces happily and I'll think of you on my wedding day, without a doubt. I'll send photos when we're back & settled. In the meantime, be well!

I'm stunned! I don't even know where to start, so the first thing that pops into my mind... Those pearl pieces are just incredible. I love the necklace, but the bracelet's design is adorable. I have never had any jewelry quite like this set. I haven't even tried any of it on yet because I'm too busy fondling all the pearls. Ha. The other earrings and the pendant are also quite lovely. So, yes, I would say that this purchase went far beyond my expectations. I'll definitely be back for more. I must have lost the coupon you sent in my excitement, but your prices are reasonable anyway. I'm now a subscriber and will shop again soon.
Thanks, LeAnn

Hi there Roe, hope you are doing great!
Just a brief note to let you know I received my necklace yesterday and I must say I have no words to describe how stunning it was to view this piece up close and personal!! It is just GORGEOUS and I'm more than happy with my purchase!! I would also like to THANK YOU and congratulate you for your work and superb customer service.

Once again thank you so much for everything.

All the best to you and your family.

Kind regards,

Good evening Roe,
The package has just been delivered. Thank you so much for insisting that the earrings and necklace remain together as a suite. They are simply stunning! Your design is lovely, a bit of understated elegance, so tastefully arranged with beautiful, quality materials. I will wear them with great pride and enjoy their lovely luster for many years.

You are so talented and creative; and deserve more compensation than you've received, but then I wouldn't be able to wear your designs. So I can only hope my sincere appreciation of your artistry and the pride I have each time I am wearing one of your pieces, somehow makes up for what I can not give monetarily. I know that I must own some of your most fabulous pieces!! Thank you ! Thank you !! Thank you !!!

My warmest regards,

Good Morning,
I wanted you to know your package arrived yesterday, and my earrings are lovely!!
I feel like I have a new wardrobe of earrings just in time for Spring. Of course you are in warmer weather, but up here in Minnesota, we kind of get "cabin fever". I long to go up north to the cabin and listen to the loons sing.
Take care,

Hi Roe:

I just wanted to let you know that I received the necklace yesterday. It is more beautiful than the picture!

This is the most exquisite piece I own.


Hi, Roe:
I just received my earrings and I love,love,love them.

They are exactly what I wanted and expected. The quality is great and
you were so sweet to package everything up the way you did. I felt like
a kid on Christmas morning.

Can't wait to see what else you have, my entire natural family was born
in October, so you know I am looking for unique gift ideas.

Thank you again. The entire experience has been great.

I just returned from my trip And what was waiting for me when I STUNNING sterling silver and marcasite hoops!!!! I'm beyond thrilled, Roe!!! I like the heavy weight of them, they're so substantial, which is exactly what I was seeking. I have dozens of pairs of earrings, but nothing to compare with these. THEY AWESOME!!!! And so are YOU!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Roe, for agreeing to do this for me. I know I will be back for more. This pair of earrings is truly special, and I will cherish them. And I promise to always give you plenty of time to create a pair of earrings for me. Take all the time you would need. I'm never in a hurry. Your creations are ALWAYS worth the wait. Again, I'm thrilled beyond words with my gorgeous hoops!!!! Have a great day, and thank you so much for the bright spot and sparkle in my day.

Dear Roe,
Love the earrings! You are so talented! Thanks for packing so carefully. Stay well and enjoy life! Until my next purchase...
Warmest Regards,

Dear Roe - the order has arrived - both of the bracelets are stunning and I still keep looking at all the different gems and unusual beads you have incorporated - they are wonderful. Also the earrings and matching pendant are gorgeous too - you feel like a fairy princess wearing them. Thanks so much. Best wishes,

Hi Roe,
I received the necklace and all I can say is "WOW"! The stones are just beautiful, and as usual, I love the design. Thanks so much for the great price and the outstanding service.
