Each I Adorn U piece has a personal narrative. The creator is influenced by her environment: a desert landscape, highlighted by the twinkle of the Las Vegas skyline.

Beth is inspired by Inca heritage and how her ancestors used gold. Her interest in design came at an early age, as she remembers admiring the detail and skill in the metal works of the Incas that she saw in books and later in the museums in Peru. The silver and gold artifacts are beautiful and Beth wanted to work in the same media.  It is no wonder the Inca's used cool colors of silver to mimic the moon and gold as the warmth of the sun.
