Meet the Maker
of Alpenglow Jewelry
The rosy light of the setting or rising sun seen on high mountains.
Alpenglow Jewelry is inspired by the high desert in Bend, Oregon. As an avid climber, hiker and outdoor enthusiast, Leanne Callahan designs jewelry for the adventurous spirit. Her inspiration is drawn from many prominent areas in and around Bend, such as, the high mountain peaks, Smith Rock State Park, and many of the wild plants that grow in Central Oregon.
Leanne choose the name Alpenglow Jewelry because of the rosy beauty of an alpenglow and the feeling it evokes when viewing one; calm, tried & true.
With locally inspired designs, Leanne strives to use reclaimed metals and american mined gemstones such as, Oregon sunstones & jaspers, Montana sapphires & agates, and a plethora of turquoise from the Southwest region.
Incorporated with fine jewelry techniques and skills, Alpenglow Jewelry's rustic style can be appreciated while adventuring in the backcountry or while perusing downtown, so enjoy and let it glow!
