Springfield jewelry business Onie + Sky supports melanoma research

From the basement of a shopping center in Springfield, Emily Laurie’s business is taking off.

Laurie has been running her jewelry business, called Onie + Sky, for about a year from a space in the basement of the Brentwood Shopping Center.

Laurie started the business as a way to keep her mind occupied after finding out she had melanoma skin cancer. Now, her hobby has grown into a thriving business. 

Onie + Sky’s business really took off after she made a bracelet for a family member who then posted about it on social media. Within a day, Laurie had 100 orders.

Onie + Sky is a Springfield jewelry business that makes custom bracelets. It is named after Laurie’s daughters (Sloane and Skylar).
