When I created Adore Adorn, I made a list of 10 mantras that I believe truly represent the essence of why I created the company.
The Know Your History mantra is an understanding that we must seek what came before to understand where we are today. My designs are heavily influenced by historical references and that is what makes it so personal. Depth of knowledge produces significantly better art, in my humble opinion.
What I'm inspired by:
- The Harlem Renaissance
- Art Deco
- Vintage Hollywood
- Fashion from the 60's and 70's
- African American churches
- Metal: Brass
- Engraved Writing
- Tiger Eye inlay, discreetly on the ends
