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.
