Oore is founded and run by me, Uma Gordin. I started making and selling my creations at the age of 18, after slowly finding my own style. It's taken time and hard work, but I like to think I've come a long way from just putting charms onto chains and stringing beads.
In 2013 after taking metalsmithing classes at Metal Heart Jewelry in Minneapolis, I decided to start selling handmade fine jewelry I made from sterling silver, gold, and various gemstones. I love working on handmade alternative engagement rings for people who don't want the traditional look. I've always loved when handmade looks handmade, so you always have something completely one of kind and forever just yours.
My jewelry inspiration comes first from nature, which is where I find myself most when I'm not in the studio. I love hiking and spending time in the forest, which I hope translates over into my work.
Home for my business is Tacoma, WA, but you will notice my location will change once in awhile, as my Husband is in the Military and we move more frequently. Currently located outside of Raleigh NC <3
