Join us 3/20 from 5-7pm

We are now located at 128 1/2 E Washington St., in Downtown Iowa City, directly across from the Pedestrian Mall in the Arcade Building. Look for the green neon ARCADE sign above the door and come on up! Second Floor, Suite 1.

New Season = Fresh Start!

Its party time! We are delighted to introduce you to our new space!! Please drop in and see what we have been up to during this long cold lonely winter.

Wednesday March 20th is the Vernal Equinox and a full moon, and, for many, marks the New Year. Come help us launch the space; a champagne toast will happen at quarter past six. We will have many delightful springy snacks, sips, sparkly jewels, and spirits abounding!

THANK YOU all so much for your patience and support. This could never have happened without you, and I am so grateful. It was never my intention for this to be a secret or surprise. Like the little crocus popping up every spring, it has merely been hidden from sight. Trying to find the right place has been such a difficult journey, and I wanted to spare you the drama. I told myself I would not settle, and I would not ruin myself or change my mission. Finally, having given up hope that I would find the right place, this sun-filled sanctuary found me. So grateful, I immediately wanted to share it. My dear friend Dawn of Folkloracle was looking for a place to meet clients and to expand her practice as a Death Doula, and it was a perfect match.

We are so excited to share our plans with you, and to grow our little businesses together, please join us on Wednesday to celebrate all things new and growing! Happy Ostara!

Let’s make some magic…

I would love to make your jewelry dreams come true, but have only two hands and one heart, leaving me with a limited number of commissions every year. Please take your time to research and evaluate this big investment, and give me all the relevant information. If I can accommodate you, I will respond as soon as my schedule allows. Thank you for understanding, crafting jewelry in this intimate way requires total focus and leaves little time for anything else. 

Time is precious, and so are the priceless heirlooms I strive to create for you. Respect for the value of labor and practiced craft is essential to this process, as well as a clear idea of the costs of ethical and eco-conscious precious gems and metals. Please do your own research and contact me when you feel ready. If you want more insight into the process, feel free to follow me on instagram for a peek behind the scenes, @over.the.m00n and @grandmarie

When you are ready, use the form below to give me all the information you can so I can best assess your needs. If I can meet them, I will let you know.

Hi there!

My name is Kelly Marie, and I am an artist and goldsmith. My process combines the visual and technical to create finely crafted jewelry that functions as wearable art. Symbolism is layered into each jewel, crafted ceremoniously from the highest quality materials, sourced ethically and eco-consciously. I specialize in jewels of significance, engagement and wedding rings, milestones, memorials, and memento mori, talismans, charms, and protective jewelry. Intimate and intuitive, every design requires a connection to the client and research and meditation to inspire the imagery and metaphor that capture the meaning and intention behind the object.

Professionally, I have a Jewelry Making and Repair Certificate from the North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA and a BFA in Painting from the Kansas City Art Institute.


From our hands to yours

Over the Moon Studio is a place of sanctuary, wonder, and inspiration. I bring every part of myself to the creation of sacred jewelry objects, made just for you. I am a visual artist and a professionally trained bench jeweler, and I perform every step of the process myself with careful ceremonious intention. The process takes practiced skill, ample time, and divine inspiration. These works of art are aesthetic achievements, feats of engineering, crafted with refined skill and sensitivity, bearing evidence of the artist's touch.
