Announcement   Welcome! To Power Adornment for the One of a Kind Woman.

Jewelry and clothing design are my passions. They both grew out of my fascination with myth, legend and history. The women of the ancient world amazed me. And when I realized the queens and consorts used adornment as their secret weapon I was hooked. Looking 'pretty' was the theme, but power was the goal. So please check out all my power pieces.

I design one of a kind jewelry and Boho casual 'rags' for every woman -for Tuesday when you want to dress down and for Saturday night when you want to dress up. One day its jeans and a boho shirt - with just that perfect clay necklace, and the next day it's a party or a wedding - with those earrings your friends covet. Or that pearl ring. On Monday you're serious, on Friday it's TGIF. I design jewelry to accompany you in all those places and all those moods.

I've talked to lots of women at art festivals where I exhibit - and its thrilling to observe that every woman walks to the beat of her own drummer. I design for that woman. We have our own style, our own sassy times and more subdued times. I design for those.

My designs can be bold and demand attention when that's where you're at, or subtle and casual yet still make a statement. Every piece of jewelry is unique, never to be made again. I seek out all the antiques, stones and beads, and personally make every piece. I mail every item and make certain you love wearing your purchase as much as I loved making it.

Please enjoy my designs and I hope you find something here that works perfectly for your style.

These are so much fun. I love the use of Sari silk when combined with other materials - very unique accessory. I can tell I will need to build my outfit around these fabulous earrings.

My other Sari fabric earrings from AncientDesigns. So unique and such fun. Very well made - time spent is evident and quality of materials and workmanship is excellent.

Love the combination of metals and textures. Truly unique accessory. Very well made. I am also very pleased with seller. She was all packed to move when I ordered and gave me the option to cancel my order. I said I would wait if she promised to remember me. Not only did she remember me, she sent me a couple of updates so I'd know she hadn't forgotten. VERY IMPRESSED. A new favorite store.

About

Always Evolving

One of my dominant characteristics is curiosity. My mother used to call it 'nosy' but as I discovered along this life journey, curiosity is a life sustaining and truly magical quality. My jewelry designs follow that ever evolving theme - I am always testing and seeking new materials, unusual styles, artsy designs that can be worn everyday - not just on special occasions. I've been designing for over 15 years and love every minute of it. I've started a Blog on my website with my rescue Lhasa Apso, Holly, and my next blog is about creativity and how it flows from chaos to order and back to chaos. Swimming in the creative chaos of expression is powerful and addicting as every artist will admit. And I'm very content to follow this artistic path...it just gets curiouser and curiouser!
