Tassel Bar Pop-Up at Cotton & Co. Boutique

Celebrate National Best Friends Day

with our POP-UP at Cotton & Co Vintage Boutique

We’ll be spending Saturday, June 8, at Cotton & Co, a charming vintage boutique in Keymar Maryland (just next to Westminster, New Market and Taneytown).  Shop & pop up event hours are 10am-5pm.  Click here for full event information.

Be sure to bring your bestie along, too!  Black Ankle Vineyards will be on-site doing complimentary tastings.  Plus, Cotton & Co is a 100+ year old former grain mill that is now home to two floors of artisan and vintage dealers.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a pop-up without our Tassel Bar!  We’ll have everything on hand to create the tassel earrings you’ve been dreaming of.  And YOU get to play “designer” and pick out each of the elements!

*We’ve even added a few new tassel colors (for the spring & summer) to our Tassel Bar that aren’t featured above*

Ali will be taking custom tassel orders and filling as many as she can on-site.  What she can’t get to during the event will be completed during the following week and shipped out, free of charge!  So, get your orders in early so you can wear your new earrings home!

In addition to the Tassel Bar, we’ll have our couture baubles with us!  Come and see The New Bloom Collection (as well as some of our classic favorites) in person!

What’s New in our New Jewelry Collection?

New elements, techniques and materials are blooming in our new collection.

Ali is evolving as a designer.   Behind the scenes (or, in little sneak peeks in our InstaStories) you may have noticed that she spends a lot of time investing in learning new jewelry-making skills and mastering new jewelers’ tools.

Here at J’Adorn, we’re excited to grow our brand with higher quality materials and new techniques in how we make the jewelry you love to wear.

We’re giving you a first look at some of our newest pieces (and some of the ones we are most proud of) here in this post.

Here are the elevated elements you can be looking for in the New Bloom Collection:
PRECIOUS GEMS, like:
  • Aquamarine
  • Watermelon tourmaline
  • Citrine
  • Amethyst
  • Fluorite
FINE METALS:
  • Gold-filled, rose gold-filled, and sterling silver are now standard
  • (Our branch earrings used to be gold plated brass, but now we’re elevating the design with better materials so they’ll last longer and wear more comfortably!)

In addition to working with finer materials, we are expanding some of our signature elements.  First up: DRUZIES!

For all the babes who love to rock our Druzy Gemstone jewelry, say hello to WHITE DRUZIES.  They are the perfect cooler-colored counterpart to our best selling champagne druzies!  And, we think they look stunning on just about every skin tone.

Here, we’re featuring our White Druzy & Rose Quartz Drop Earrings

We’re also expanding our much-loved “vine” wire wrapping style in this collection.  Whenever we pop-up at artisan shows and maker’s markets, our wire wrapped pieces are SUCH conversation starters… and many of them leave our table and head off to their forever homes.

Blossoming in this collection, you’ll find:
  • Coral branch earrings
  • Watermelon tourmaline & rose quartz vine earrings
  • Aquamarine branch necklace and matching earrings
  • Rough tourmaline branch earrings

Life is better in COLOR, don’t you think?

We’re bringing you a RAINBOW of gemstones in this collection.  We just cannot get enough of these colorful stunners.  Add little pops of color to your wardrobe and get ready to hear ALL THE COMPLIMENTS!

If you’ve been following the J’Adorn brand for any length of time, you probably know how we feel about hair adornments. (OBSESSED!)

And, as much as we love them in neutrals, we are absolutely ga-ga for them IN COLOR!

Ali started designing hair combs and pins for brides, but when they were included on our table at shows and markets, ladies of all ages (and hair types & lengths) fawned over them.  And so often at those events, non-brides took them home.

So… we’re giving the people what they want!  And what they want is FULL COLOR HAIR COMBS!

If all that color still isn’t enough…

our best-selling delicate link bracelets come in new colors too!

*We’re especially crushing on our bracelet inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year: Living Coral*

Finally, to finish out this collection we’ve added a few alternative bridal accessories with a bit of an edge.  Historically, we’ve always leaned in to more of a delicate and botanical vibe for our bridal pieces.  But all brides are NOT the same and we want to have a little something for the bride who wants to embrace a bit of a rough, natural side.

LOOK FOR:
  • textured freshwater pearls (pictured below)
  • crystal quartz spikes (like in the hair comb and the bracelet below)
  • rough gemstones (like the white druzy & rose quartz earrings)

We’ve worked so hard, and poured so much heart into this new collection.  We’d LOVE to hear your feedback, because ultimately, it’s all for YOU.

Let us know which pieces you’re crushing on either here in the blog comments or on our social channels.  We can’t wait to hear what you love most… or want to see more of!

We’re Popping Up: Mother’s Day Monarch Fest

Our good friend Dawn, over at Silver Linings Lavender, is hosting a Mother’s Day Monarch Festival and we are excited to be popping up as a vendor this weekend.

You may recognize Dawn (or her logo)… she is part of our Tuesdays Together group for The Rising Tide Society.  Silver Linings and J’Adorn also have an on-going collaboration of essential oils and diffuser bracelets!

Mother's Day Monarch Feast event image Here’s what Dawn has to say about the inspiration and purpose for the monarch festival…

  • Monarch butterfly populations have been drastically declining.
  • Their caterpillars only eat one type of plant, called milkweed. As human development grows, milkweed habitat disappears. You can help by planting milkweed in your yard and even creating pollinator gardens.
  • Come to our event and purchase a milkweed plant or even learn to care for some free milkweed seeds and enjoy the beautiful weekend with your favorite mom!
  • Proceeds from the event will benefit Monarchwatch.org.

Need more information?  Here’s a link to the Facebook event!

J’Adorn Designs will be there with a table full of our favorite styles for spring and summer.   We’ll also have our TASSEL BAR in tow!

Want a sneak peek?!  Check out these photos from last weekend’s pop up at MayFair Market
