Happy New Year, Welcome 2018!!

Elza, a South African embroidery artist, and her astonishing birds:

Get up real close, these are not the real thing! 
May you soar into this new year!


Just a sign that I'm alive...

After a NASTY wave of the stomach flu here at the Willis home, I am wiped out!  I am taking things easy and may fall behind in my duties at Adorn. I apologize, I will be back soon.
In the meantime a very fun and amazing artist, Jane Perkins, who works with beads and junk! Enlarge and look very closely.

What's really wild is that I was looking up who the artist was and googled: artist, junk, portraits, and there are many others who do fantastic work with our trash! Heres the screen shot of what came up from the search! 


Mesmerizing threads...

The Announcement that made me happy this morning!

This came from the Pennsylvania Convention Center this morning:

and the attached list of artists, (last page has the W's on it...)

I'm smiling...


Very limited quantity of beauties!

I have a number of lovely new Key rings or Scissor Fobs available, just a short line of them and since I will be away tomorrow I won't post them in our shop just yet. Instead I will put them up here and give you first dibs!  These are beautifully handmade lampwork beads, large and impressive, hanging off of a screw-on key ring which you can use on your scissors or with your keys. Lovely handmade gifts. Send me a note (orna@ornadesign.com), with the ones you want, identify them with the numbers 1-4 as shown in the photo and I'll send you a Paypal invoice for payment.

They are priced: Number 1-3: $16 and Number 4: $18

There aren't too many of them so let me know before I post them in the shop!
