Oariginals grew out of our desire to creatively celebrate the many compelling
facets of rowing. We came to rowing as adults, and found the sport
captivating and the comraderie stimulating. But, when we looked for ways to
express our affiliation to our newfound passion, we found very little. In fact,
Nancy Klein - our resident artist - was often called upon to create cards for
our coaches and fellow rowers. We decided that others might also enjoy Nancy's
creations and Oariginals was born. And now we've adapted Nancy's art to other
forms, with prints, and temporary tattoos. Jane is indulging her loves of both
fire and water through handcrafted sterling silver rowing jewelry, and plans to
keep expanding her line and building her skills as a silversmith.
We hope you'll find something here to tickle your fancy. We plan to continue
adding to our selection (stationery and more!), so do check back from time to
time to see what we've come up with.
