You may not think of the beach when visiting the gorgeous state of Colorado, but that hasn’t stopped us from bringing in the month of August with a new beach themed store. Many of the owners and residents of Adorned hail from the east coast where summer is synonymous with toes in the water, cool drink in hand while catching some of those sunny summer rays. There is something magical about Boulder and the beauty of the mountains, but it leaves us craving that salty warm air. We had so much fun creating the windows in the shop this month. Not only does it let us reminiscent about joyful beach-filled memories, but it really gives the shop the opportunity to put our summer ready fine jewelry in the spotlight.
Each artist has such a unique style and it was fun pulling items that gave new meaning to summer style. The malas created by Bryan Russell are painstakingly knotted by hand. We’re in love with this particular piece crafted in high quality tiger’s eye, complimented with a laughing Buddha bead. It works well with the vibrant coral pieces lovingly built by Mary Rose and Kaye Barnett, two local artists who also happen to work in the shop.
It wouldn’t be summer without pearls and we had so much creating sandboxes that encourage our customers to feel a little sand between their fingers. Catherine Phillips is our resident knotter, but we have tons of artists who have contributed their take on this summer classic. Pearls never go out of style!
Not only are we able to pull our incredible jewelry finds to support our beach vibes, but recently Adorned by Nomad has branched out to stock tons of other hand-made gifts. How stunning are these hand-carved soaps by Charming Frog? Not to mention the beautiful textiles hand-crafted by resident artist and shop keep, Carol Garnand.
From heirloom woolen bathing suits to boogie boards, the detail and care that went into this month’s beach theme is exceptional. Adorned by Nomad has been designed as treasure trove of discovery with the customer experience at top of mind. Not only do we pride ourselves on the beautiful displays, but we have endless drawers of hand-crafted fine jewelry for you to scour. We want each guest to feel as though they’ve walked inside of a jewelry box. What precious rarity will you discover on your next trip?
