October 4, 2009 Adornments’ own Laura Lempke married Nashville native James Dugger.

The Adornments team really went all out for the occasion producing announcements, invitations, and jewelry as well as calling on guest artists Charlie Thompson and Olia Zavozina for more!  As you can see from the images, courtesy of Gray Photography, the results were well worth the effort of all the amazing contributing artists!

Valentine’s at Adornments!

February 12, 2009 at 7:22 PM (Jewelry) (, , , , , , , , , , )

As promised previously, I have finished the Valentine’s Heart Pendants!!

Valentine's Heart Pendant

I apologize for the poor photo quality..but you get the idea right? For those of  who are really paying attention, no the image hasn’t been flipped… They are all a little different, this isn’t the same pendant that I put up an in progress picture of.  They even come in different sizes. What would be the fun in making them all the same??

So today we set up a lovely Valentine’s display in our store, assembling all of our more romantic jewelry (ie. rings, heart pendants, rose quartz jewerly, and some of the Embrace series) along with one of our wood turned ikebana holders (ikebana is the Japanese art form of flower arranging, it’s gaining in popularity in the U.S. so local wood workers have taken up the task of making beautiful holders!) and of course, the obligatory roses!

Valentine's Day at Adornments!

Of course, we’ve decorated the rest of the store a little too, but this is where we wanted to highlight a few pieces.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Announcing a new addition!

February 11, 2009 at 9:08 PM (Guest Artists, Jewelry) (, , , )

We’d like to welcome Charlie Thompson to the Adornments guest artist team!!

Charlie specializes in titanium rings with wood inlays (though he does some plain titanium too). He uses all kinds of woods- local and exotic, and boy are these sweet!! Take a look!

We are very excited to have his work in our gallery! His rings are perfect for all occasions- from wedding bands to everyday right hand rings, men and women! He can do custom orders (just pick your wood, style and ring size!) and has an amazingly fast turn around time! These are hand made (obviously, or we wouldn’t carry them..) and available exclusively through Adornments, upstairs at the Factory!
Charlie comes from a long family history of wood workers, and has been doing this for most of his life.  He’s currently working on a new line of titanium rings using Tennessee pearls! We’ll let you know how those turn out.
