About Crystal Orchard

Crystal Orchard

I sell what I make and teach what I craft.

Hello to you and welcome to Crystal Orchard the home of beautiful Handmade Gemstone Jewellery.
I am very happy to be able to share my creations with you; I hope that one day you might be wearing one of my individual pieces.
Crystal Orchard is a small family run, cottage industry based in Cheltenham the heart of the Cotswolds, England.
Specialising in Handmade Gemstone Jewellery and crafts. My name is Joanne Benson. And I am the resident designer, maker. I studied Art & design at Cheltenham and Small Studio Practice at Hereford some 20 years ago and started my creative career Designing and Making Jewellery, Hats and Bags and run a small business for many years before stopping to start a family. Now my children have grown up I find my passion and love for jewellery and gemstones has rekindled. With a lifetime of knowledge and a healthy obsession for jewellery, I just can’t stop creating lovely one off individual pieces. I have an enthusiasm for Gemstones and their meanings and enjoy with a passion bringing together the tones and textures of the stones to create a piece that not only looks beautiful but has a meaning behind it as well.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding any of my pieces of jewellery in my shop and happy to discus any individual commission requests you may have.
