Fashionable finds, made with fair trade materials. That’s the idea behind Fairly Adorned, a locally-launched accessory company that empowers artists around the world. Read on for more!
Fun and fashionable, while also empowering and ethically sourced. That’s the foundation on which Tara Tenore built her business, Fairly Adorned.
“I create unique, quality jewelry,” she says. “My goal is to create one of a kind pieces which are easy and fun to wear. I like to feature Fair Trade and ethically sourced beads and components both for their unique one of a kind qualities and the positive social impact.”
Tenore works with several organizations around the world to source her materials and product lines, such as Kazuri, Swazi and Paper to Pearls. Materials range from metal and stone to leather and cork. Tenore says her best seller is their line of Triple Wrap Leather Bracelets.
Launching the business not only provides significant income to her partner organizations that support sustainable lifestyles for their artisans, but it also allows Tenore to stay at home with her three-year-old and six-year-old. “I stay at home with my two beautifully sweet girls, balancing my ‘mommyhood’ with my creative work,” she says. “I love what I do and the people I meet and would not change anything… except maybe a little more sleep… but that goes for most of us doesn’t it?”
While Fairly Adorned doesn’t have a brick and mortar store, you can find Tenore at 30+ shows per year. You can see a list of her scheduled events on her website.
Tenore says her next event is on Saturday, August 8 in Yellow Springs at the Art on the Lawn craft show — a fine art, craft, jewelry, and home décor festival hosted by Village Artisans. It’s a free event that is open to the public.
