"Working with color and texture, I play with light and beauty”

In 1989, Chili Rose was born of passion and an obsession with beads and love of the Southwest sensibility. Combining cowgirl and Hollywood glamour, with a focus on detailed pattern and texture, Adonnah 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 the beads. It can take days to perfect those elements once the initial design has been established.

Adonnah’s work combines sterling silver with glass, pearls, turquoise, gemstones and other stones such as quartz, lapis, jade and coral. Over the years, Adonnah has designed and manufactured more than 25 unique sterling silver clasps, putting Chili Rose in a category of its own.

ARTISAN STATEMENT

"What makes my work so unique is the dimensional beading process I created in 1990.  Up until then, bead weaving was an American Indian specialty that used single size beads to create a flat surface. I didn’t want to compete with the master Native American beaders, rather I wanted to create something modern to differentiate my beading style from what the discerning shopper was accustomed to seeing. The solution was using different size beads with special finishes and materials such as gold cords and threads to create dimensions within the bracelet strip.

Many people have adopted this technique now as their own, however, my works stands alone in its use of color, pattern and complexity."
