The Beautiful Benefits of Custom
Here at J’Adorn, we have always prided ourselves on bringing our clients pieces they are going to love and treasure for a LONG time. Custom jewelry is just one of the ways we’re doing that.
Designer Ali loves the creative process, and she knows that sometimes, certain clients have specific wants or needs. And that kind of custom work is where the fun of collaboration and problem solving come into play.
At every pop-up show or market we attend, Ali always has her sketchbook in tow for on-the-spot custom jewelry consultations.
Recently, at the Rehoboth Art League’s Outdoor Fine Art & Craft Show, Ali sketched out THREE different custom orders. And we’re featuring the first one here on the blog today!
Its inspiration was our Coral Branch Earrings from the New Bloom Collection.
During the show, a customer fell in love with our original Coral Branch Earrings and just had to have this look in her jewelry collection.
BUT, due to stretched earlobes and sensitive ears, these showstoppers just weren’t comfortable for her to wear.
Our Solution: Shorten the already-lightweight earrings and use posts instead of lever-back earrings
We kept the branch design, intricate wire work and coral gemstones from the original design. So, the overall aesthetic is the same. But this modified pair will keep their new owner happily ear-ache free whenever she wears them!
And, as we start to transition into autumn, we’re hoping our new custom client loves wearing her “Pumpkin Spice Earrings” with scarves and sweaters, too!
Boudoir Shoot Sneak Peek
We’re only allowed to share a few images from this styled shoot right now, but they’re so smokin’ that we just couldn’t keep a lid on them!
From classic style to boho and edgy looks, this shoot has something to inspire everyone.
We can’t wait to get the green light and show you MORE boudoir, but for now, we’re obsessing over this sneak peek and the way our jewelry adds a touch of sparkle without overpowering the “barely-there” looks.
Above, you’ll find our Crystal Spike & Pearl Necklace in Rose Gold. We love the warm tones in this piece. It just seems to glow, doesn’t it?
A boudoir shoot is designed to celebrate a woman’s beauty and sensuality. When you’ve got the right photographer, they can be fun, empowering and FULL of self-love. We love that our jewelry becomes a delicate compliment to the look, while still letting the woman’s beauty take center stage. Have YOU ever thought about doing a boudoir shoot?
Our White Druzy Earrings are featured in the subtly steamy shot above.
We promise to share the rest of the photos as soon as we can, but for now we’ll leave you with this last shot. And hopefully with some inspiration to start dreaming up your own boudoir shoot! It could be a fun break from the traditional bachelorette party scene. Or, a special girls’ night with your besties!
The model above is wearing our Sparkling Sea Aquamarine Branch Earrings and our Love Is Golden Bracelet.
Collaborating Vendors and Artisans:
We have a Secret Shopping Group on Facebook
(and we’ve got your link to join)
THIS LINK is your key to our elite community of favorite clients and customers… YOU!
We promise we won’t over-post on Facebook and clutter up your newsfeed, but…
Each August, we host an exclusive SECRET SHOPPING event on Facebook. We list some end-of-season, last-of-their-kind and vintage J’Adorn pieces at DEEP discounts.
We’ve filled this post with screen grabs from last year’s sale to help give you an idea of the sale structure, types of sale items we’ll have AND the amazing, super limited time prices!
August is here and even in the midst of two weekends of the RAL Show, we’re busily getting organized and prepped for the secret event.
(It’s the last major thing on our calendar that stands between us and the frantic retail holiday season!)
The sale, typically spread over a couple days, runs like this:
- Ali posts an image, description and sale price of the item (occasionally there are multiples of a piece, which will be noted in the description)
- The first to comment with “SOLD!” and their PayPal or Venmo email gets it!
- Items are promptly packaged and shipped after the invoice is completed
So, join the group now! And you’ll be ready to jump on your favorite pieces before someone else claims them!
We’re heading back to the BEACH!
We’re packing our bags and heading to one of our favorite artisan market locations for the next two weekends… Rehoboth Art League, here we come!
We love spending time at the Rehoboth Art League campus. This shady spot with enormous evergreens is just a stone’s throw from the water… literally. It’s just a dreamy spot to spend a day (or two, or four)!
This will be our THIRD show in less that 12 months at Rehoboth Art League and we are so honored that they keep inviting us back. The Outdoor Show is a BIG deal in Rehoboth. Food, children’s activities, more than 125 artisan makers, music and more!
It’s so fitting that our New Bloom Collection (which will be making its RAL debut this weekend) carries so many beachy vibes…
And actually, now that we think about it, maybe all the time we’ve spent on the RAL campus this past fall and winter trickled into Designer Ali’s creative flow!
In addition to our New Bloom Collection pieces, we’ll be bringing along lots of our classic J’Adorn pieces like our delicate gemstone bracelets, customer favorites like our druzy jewelry, and of course LOTS of hair adornments.
We think it might be the artsy atmosphere at RAL, but customers at our previous shows there have LOVED our hair combs and pins. So, if you plan on stopping by, please let us style your hair in a comb! We love playing dress up!
Check out the RAL’s Facebook event page for all the extra details you’ll want to have, but here are a few of the most important highlights:
- Saturdays from 10am-5pm
- Sundays from 10am-4pm
- 12 Dodds Lane Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971
- Outdoor event with raffle & refreshments
- Rain or shine!
And, as always, if you’re not local but LOVE what you’re seeing here, our online shop is open and waiting for you! However, some of the pieces in our New Bloom Collection are limited (these gemstones come in small batches) so ACT QUICKLY!
With two weekends in Rehoboth around the corner, and hundreds of market-goers stopping by our booth, we can’t promise we’ll still have what you’ve been eyeing!
We’ve got another retailer to welcome to the J’Adorn Family!
Earlier this summer, Ali popped up with the Tassel Bar at Cotton & Co Vintage Boutique for a Saturday outside on the shop’s covered patio and it was LOVE. We simply adored the vintage and artisan vibes of this shop.
And shop owner Jess loved our jewelry (especially the tassels) and just had to have them in stock!
We love the connection between our high quality cotton tassels (instead of cheaper synthetic ones you’ll find at fast-fashion locations) and the name of our newest stockist: Cotton & Co!
Jess selected a stunning capsule collection of our tassel jewelry to be displayed in her Maryland Jewelry Case…
…and while we love the other featured designers, we think our baubles steal the show!
She selected some of our favorite pieces with options to coordinate them AND a few pieces you won’t even find on our website.
Cotton & Co Vintage Boutique is located in Keymar, Maryland which is near Taneytown and Westminster. It’s not too far from Frederick either!
So, if you’d like to take a weekend to explore some of our area’s best vintage shops, be sure to include Cotton & Co on your list!
Not only do they boast an ever-changing collection of refined vintage treasures, they are also home to several artisan vendors and The Maryland General Store.
Not local to our little corner of the globe here in Central Maryland?
FRET NOT, BABES! We’ve got all the tassels your heart desires in our online shop!
