Surprise Gift + Free Shipping = the perfect time to treat yourself

And, definite bonus points if you “unbox” your surprise gift and tag us in your instagram post or story!  One of the BEST parts about gifting is seeing the look on the other person’s face and we would LOVE to “see” you open your gift!

Head straight over to the Jewelry Shop to snag a piece of jewelry to brighten up your spring wardrobe.  But, be quick!  The birthday magic ends on Sunday night (3/24/19)… or sooner if the surprise presents run out!

Made in Maryland Beach Wedding Inspiration

Homegrown & Local Maryland Makers brought this Beach Wedding editorial to life

Marylanders seem to live for summer days at the beach, so it’s no wonder that so many Maryland Brides pull from that inspiration to create their perfect wedding.  And, we were lucky enough to be a part of a team of 100% local vendors who created this styled shoot to get you ready for wedding season in Maryland!

For this casual and playful affair, the bride is styled in TWO different looks (which means she got to enjoy TWO different pairs of J’Adorn Designs earrings to compliment her styles).  She’s also adorned with one of our handmade hair combs!

Waterfront Maryland weddings are a stunning way to capture the natural beauty and laid back ease of the ocean (or bay).  And, the same can be said for this couple!  

To enhance and play off of the natural vibes of the venue, above, we styled the bride in our Pretty Vine Earrings.

She glows in this look.  And the earrings pop against her relaxed half-up hairstyle, adding just the right amount of elegance.

For the second bridal look, we chose an earring that is a bit more structured.  Our Sprout & Pearl Earrings in gold offer a slightly more polished, less bohemian look.  However, like so much of our jewelry, they are inspired by nature.

We really can’t choose which look is our favorite.  So, we’re not going to!

We’re just going to bask in the joy of this couple.

In true Maryland fashion, a signature wedding cocktail infused with Sagamore Rye is a MUST.  If you’re a fan of Moscow Mules, be sure to give this Maryland Mule a try.  Just ask the bartender at your favorite waterfront spot this summer!  Cheers!

How beautifully delicate is the back of this dress?!?

Sets off our Modern Geometric Crystal Haircomb quite nicely, doesn’t it?  Haircombs are a perfect way to add a touch of sparkle to an understated wedding hair look.

And, they make great heirloom keepsakes.  They are the perfect piece to pull our each year for your anniversary date so that you can keep the memory of your wedding day fresh.

Above or Below?  Which earring is more YOUR style?!  Tell us in the comments!

Personally, we don’t think there’s a wrong answer!  But, variety is the spice of life.  Isn’t it great to have options!?

The beautiful thing about a Maryland waterfront wedding is that the backdrop is always stunning.  And, you don’t need to add much to it!

We just can’t get over this couple’s HAPPY!  (And that blue suit is pretty spot-on, too!)

Our (second) favorite thing in this flat-lay photo are the Maryland themed stamps!  Those little details make all the difference, don’t you think?

*Our MOST favorite thing is the Haircomb*

Maryland in the spring, stunning skyline, happy couple, heirloom quality jewelry… what more could you ask for?

Oh yeah, a whole mouthful of cake!  Yum!

Tassel Bar Launch Party

Welcome to the Tassel Bar

At the J’Adorn Designs signature Tassel Bar event, you get to play the role of designer and build the perfect pair of tassel earrings.  Or two or three… we won’t judge!

Tassel bar pop-up shop; design your own tassel earrings at local artisan events in Maryland with J'Adorn Designs custom jewelry and bridal accessories

Last month, in early February, we launched our first ever Tassel Bar event.  This fun pop-up event is one that we are hoping to bring to our stockist locations and other local boutiques this spring and summer (and beyond).

So, if you’re a local business owner (think: boutique, salon, studio, coffee shop, etc.), TAKE NOTES!  We want to partner with you and bring this fun and colorful experience to your venue.

Never designed jewelry before?  Don’t worry, we’ve made it easy for you!
  1. Take a design sheet
  2. Choose your tassel color
  3. Choose your gemstone bead (or beads)
  4. Choose your earlier preference
  5. Bring your design sheet to Ali or Betsy
  6. Check out with your order
  7. Your custom tassel earrings will arrive (free of shipping charges) on your doorstep

For future events, we are working towards building the earrings on-site, so that those who place their orders early enough in the event will be able to take theirs home that day!  Of course, building the tassels you design takes time and care, and if we’ve got a queue of orders, we may not be able to fill them all during the event.  The early girl gets the jewels, as they say!

We’ve blogged about our Tassel Collections before in the spring and fall of last year, but this Tassel Bar Event is something totally brand new.

Our Launch Event boasted a complimentary lip-color bar (complete with professional makeup artist), several kinds of bubbly, chocolates and a photo booth.

These tassels just inspire FUN.  So, you can be sure that any future Tassel Bar event is going to be packed with exciting experiences!

In addition to our Tassel Table, this event featured a pop-up of our other jewelry collections, too.  Our druzies are always so loved and we were happy to show off some of our newest designs!

Can you spy the new WHITE DRUZIES with rose quartz drops?

(Of course you can, how can you miss them?!)

With spring just around the corner, our bright and cheerful tassels have us dreaming about warm, dusky evenings and blooming flora.  And, wedding season, of course!

We’ve recently had a couple spring bridal clients place orders for tassel earrings to gift to their bridesmaids (umm… best brides EVER!).  Consider us your one-stop-shop for adding all the finishing touches to your wedding look AND celebrating the best friends who’ll be standing with you on your big day.

So, stay tuned for lots more Tassel Bar events popping up in Central Maryland (and the eastern shore) this year.

Don’t live nearby?  No sweat!  We’ve got lots of beautiful tassel earrings in our online jewelry shop.  And if you don’t see the color combination you’re dreaming of, let us know.  We take the “custom” part of our brand very seriously!

And, local business owners, let’s work together to bring the fun to your venue!  There are perks in it for you, too… just ask us!
