In 1989, Chili Rose discovered her passion for jewelry making. With an obsession for beads and a love of the Southwest sensibility, Adonnah combined detailed pattern and texture and ultimately created a modern style of beaded jewelry.
Bead weaving is a slow and precise process. The art is found within the relationship between color, texture, size, and finish of various beads. Many of her designs can take days to perfect once the initial design has been established.
Adonnah uses sterling silver with glass, pearls, turquoise, gems, and other stones such as quartz, lapis, jade and coral. Throughout the years, Adonnah has designed and manufactured more than 25 unique sterling silver clasps which sets Chili Rose in a category of its own.
