I Adorn U from Local Craft Fairs to Etsy

My passion for creating jewelry began in my childhood when Saturday afternoons were filled with making friendship bracelets and beaded anklets, then selling my "objets d' art" to high school friends or at Grateful Dead and Phish concerts. I have always created and sold jewelry, and even worked at a bead shop in college.

I Adorn U started from my desire to create an online art/jewelry shop. I wanted my Etsy shop to be a part of the arts community in Las Vegas and online in a larger world community. My pal turned me on to Etsy and my husband came up with the name... I Adorn U. It was a mix of art and jewelry in its infancy and matured into a jewelry shop.

During the beginning, I promoted I Adorn U at local craft fairs, First Friday Art Events and Renegade Craft Fairs. I learned so much about my customers and the products they desired that my list of contacts grew exponentially.

During the local art festivals, I Adorn U would either be a great success or at other times wouldn't make enough money to cover booth fees. Las Vegas is a small town but the arts scene is growing. I never gave up as I enjoyed meeting people from my community.
In 2007, during a First Friday Downtown Las Vegas Art Event, the jewelry buyer for Zappos.com bought my pieces. Later in 2012 Zappos featured I Adorn U as an Emerging Designer.
I am extremely grateful for that opportunity in 2012 and what it had done for the growth of my business.

In 2009, I Adorn U hit the Renegade Craft Fair circuit. I Adorn U grew and changed to accommodate buyers from different regions of the country. "Each time I do a Renegade show (2009-2012), a huge line, body of work and success come from each Renegade experience. I have made lifetime friends and connections through these events."

I Adorn U may have stated from local craft fairs, but quickly transitioned into Renegade Craft Fairs and now is growing again with the support of various buyers.
From its humble beginnings, I Adorn U grew from hodgepodge shop to a shop with a body of work recognizable throughout the world-wide art community as a one of a kind I Adorn U piece.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Brass, sterling silver and even 14K gold can tarnish over time. Sulfur in the air and even acids in our skin can tarnish metals. A fine steel wool can mechanically remove tarnish or even a baking soda and water paste is wonderful at removing sterling silver tarnish. Please apply soft circles with fine steel wool or baking soda paste. I love science and chemical reactions.
