Gabriel Ofiesh is a self-taught jeweler and has designed jewelry for over 30 years. Form, color, movement, simplicity and versatility are the five key elements of his designs, which are characterized by curves, simple forms, and smooth graceful surfaces. Diamonds are often used to accent or enhance form or color, but they remain secondary to the overall design of a piece.
Although Gabriel designs many distinct lines of work, his signature "Orbit Collection" is a favorite among Appalachian Spring customers.

Gabriel Ofiesh
The gallery is introducing precious gems into our collection, including diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and more!
Unable to land a prep school teaching job, Ofiesh, an English literature graduate from the University of Virginia, traveled to the small town of Chatham, Virginia one weekend before graduating in 1973 to try to sell some of the silver jewelry he made as a hobby. This unprecedented "commercial success" (He made $400 in one weekend.) sparked the beginnings of a 30-year career as a jewelry designer. Largely self-taught, Ofiesh took workshops along the way with noted metal workers Heikki Seppa and Ronald Pearson.
Ofiesh produces one-of-kind pieces and also steadily develops several distinctive lines of work including his new orbit ring series and his collection of woven precious metal jewelry. Ofiesh designs all of his own work and it is made in his studio in Charlottesville, Virginia.
