Here is some information about Gloria and her jewelry.

 

GloriaGloria Adams was a juried member of the Alabama Designer Craftsmen since 2005.  She learned and perfected her skills in wire, silver, fold-forming, and other jewelry media at the William Holland School of Lapidary Arts in Young Harris, Georgia.  Her wire-wrapped cabochons (cut by her husband Steve), earrings, and copper jewelry were popular items in ADC shows over the years.  Sadly, Gloria passed away in February 2020, but her jewelry is still available for purchase on her web sites, "Wire Treasures by Gloria" (https://wiretreasures.com) and "Gotta Love Copper" (https://gottalovecopper.com).

Semi-precious stones are among the most spectacular of God's creations.  As found, many look like plain old rocks.  But cut and polished, they demand attention!  The stones in Gloria's pendants are the focus of the jewelry.  She wrapped cabochons in such a manner as to enhance the beauty of each stone.  Wire does not "make" the jewelry: it's the natural beauty of the stone that makes a pendant stunning. 

Why wire wrapped jewelry?  Gloria loved jewelry.  She loved to buy it; she loved to wear it.  Gloria bought clothes to match her jewelry; she fell in love with and purchased her first piece of wire wrapped jewelry at a local gem & mineral show.

In 2004, Gloria attended the William Holland School of Lapidary Arts in Young Harris, Georgia, and learned wire wrapping techniques so she could design her own wraps.  In 2005, she returned to William Holland for a more advanced wire class.  In 2006, she studied Chaining.  Back to William Holland in 2007 for her first Silversmithing class! 

In August 2005, Gloria was awarded Juried Member status in the Alabama Designer Craftsmen.  Her primary goal was the satisfaction of those of you who appreciate her jewelry enough to purchase it.
