The VOTE necklace is here! September 10, 2020 20:44
At Adornia, we have a tradition of creating jewelry that inspires and empowers the wearer. During the last election, we conceived of both the hope necklace and the nasty necklace. Both were two sentiments that many shared equally in 2016. Outspoken and unafraid, we branded ourselves proudly as NASTY WOMEN. We were also incredibly hopeful for change and knew that our work didn't start and end with the election. This election year, inspired by Michelle Obama's speech and fashion choices, we decided to put our own spin on the VOTE necklace she wore that night. We are offering at a discount from the MSRP to make it as affordable as possible and are donating 10% of profits to Fair Fight, an organization committed to supporting fair and free elections. Shop now and wear proudly!

We raised $3,260 for Black Lives Matter Global Network this month June 30, 2020 15:04
I am so happy to share with you that after a month of shooting from the rooftops that we're donating 100% of profits from the hope lariat sales in June...the fruits of our labor is here. We were able to raise $3,260 and made the donation a few minutes ago. I am so proud of our collective efforts. Adornia is a small business that prides itself on giving back. My background is not in jewelry, but in history, where I focused on race relations in America and Germany. When the George Floyd video was released, mortified and energized, I decided to act fast and turn my hope necklace as part of the movement for justice for the black community. Our fight does not stop here. Please stay tuned as we look for more ways to get involved and leave our mark on the world as a small business with heart and soul.
Mo, founder and owner
We're donating 100% of profits from sales of the hope lariat to #blacklivesmatter June 5, 2020 09:18
I felt quite tone deaf the last week trying to post anything about jewelry on our social media channels. The US (and arguably the world) woke up last week incensed about the racial injustice plaguing our country. We say no more to unfair racial targeting and police brutality against the African American community. We demand a more even playing field and equal opportunity for all people, especially African Americans with the history of racial suppression dating from slavery. I am proud to make jewelry that inspires and gives back. I have decided to donate 100% of profits from sales of the hope lariat necklace to the Black Lives Matters movement for the foreseeable future. My company Adornia is grateful for the support and patronage of the African American community over the years. To be silent right now is to be complicit. Happy shopping! Please help me write a nice check at the end of this month.
Covid #sheroes: Our front line workers are wearing the Adornia HOPE lariat necklace June 1, 2020 14:02
We gave away 100 hope lariat necklaces last month to front line female medical professionals and have been fortunate enough to get to know 100 new special women. In these ranks, are breast cancer surgeons who were re-deployed to the intensive care unit. A labor and delivery nurse who was the nurse chosen to treat the first Covid patient on her floor. The night nurse who has been working the night shift for thirty years. Check out our Instagram to hear each of their special stories. I am so impressed with these women. Also ecstatic I can share my HOPE jewelry with them that inspires through the doggy dog worst of days. These women are our new national #sheroes. Sending love and hope, xo, Mo

I hope this note finds you all well and safe. I have some exciting news to share in the midst of the dreary. I have been working with my box manufacturer for 6 years and the last month I convinced him to invest in technology to product masks in light of the COVID-19 crisis. Adornia wrote its first purchase order for masks and they are arriving at the Adornia loft this week. We are donating 10,000 masks to NY Presbyterian Weill Cornell but also have some masks to give away to our community of friends and followers.

Adornia is a small woman-owned and run business, and like many other small businesses, our current situation has added an additional level of stress to our plate.
As we are practicing social distancing, our employees are not able to come into our Chelsea workspace out of concern for their safety. All of Adornia's employees are still being paid at this time, as paying bills should not be an added stressor for anybody right now.

Creating our jewelry wall at the #adornialoft January 7, 2020 11:04
Hi! I decided to create a space for all of the jewelry to sit in one organized place at the #adornialoft. Where we could pick and choose jewlery to style ourselves every morning and see all the layering options clearly! I am already loving the wall we built. It is also great as a design archive to build new designs off of existing ones. In case you are curious to organize your jewelry this way, we used a tack board that I bought during the Black Friday sale on Pottery Barn Teen. Here is an image of the full board and a time lapse video of me organizing the board. Stay tuned to our Instagram stories for highlights of me jewelry dressing from the board each morning.
Meet Adornia's founder, Mo Amir January 3, 2020 20:32
Thank you! December 29, 2019 19:23
Hi, I am Mo, founder and owner of this jewelry company Adornia. I am going to start posting regularly on this blog things going on in the #adornialoft and my life trying to grow this business. I am going to stop pretending like we're some big sophisticated jewelry company. It is an exhausting front to maintain and I am not good at lying. It is mainly me and my small team operating out of my New York City apartment trying to make things happen for my brand. The jewels we make are first class, designer quality, but our day-to-day is humble, and it is the small wins that make a difference and keep me going every day. At the core of Adornia is a playful, feminine, and fearless (but at times vulnerable) woman, expressing herself through a mix of our gemstone and expressive jewelry. No two gemstones are alike and no two women are alike equally. Thank you for reading along and viewing my designs!

What better way to enter this threshold than by shedding our old skin to start anew. This is an invitation to discover who we really are and what we want to become in the future.
Capricorn rules the 10th house of fame, fortune, and peoples' perception of us through our careers. Ask yourself the following questions;

A Quick History Lesson: International Women's Day March 8, 2019 12:30
“Feminism has never been about getting a job for one woman. It's about making life more fair for women everywhere. It's not about a piece of the existing pie; there are too many of us for that. It's about baking a new pie.” — Gloria Steinem
Welcome, Adornia babes. International Women's Day is March 8th, so we thought we'd do a little history lesson for you. Celebrated in many countries around the world, this day is when women are recognized for their contributions and achievements, without national, cultural, economical or political divides. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women's Day was first celebrated on March 19, 1911, when a million women and men rallied in support of women's rights on that first International Women's Day.
This year's International Women's Day campaign has chosen the theme #BalanceforBetter, which encourages people around the world to take action towards accelerating gender balance. The past 18 months have seen the women's movement reach a scale higher than before with the #metoo movement (millions began using the hashtag to speak out against experiences of harassment and assault and to form a bond with others that have suffered similarly), the midterm elections, and marches occurring almost monthly. Although these strides are amazing, there is still so much that has to change and continue to change.
Women are still not paid equally to that of their male co-workers, women still are not present in EQUAL numbers in business or politics, women's education, health and the violence against them are still worse than what men go through and deal with. If you can, take the opportunity to rally, vote, protest, speak out, and be bold.
Quick history timeline ///
1909: The first National Woman's Day was observed across the United States on February 28th.
1910: Clara Zetkin, Leader of the 'Women's Office' for the Social Democratic Party in Germany, presented the idea of an International Women's Day. Over 100 women from 17 countries vouched and agreed for and with her.
1917: Russian women began a 4-day strike for "bread and peace" after the death of over 2 million Russian soldiers in World War 1. After those four days, the Czar was forced to step down and the provisional Government granted women the right to vote.
1975: International Women's Day was celebrated for the first time by the United Nations.
1996: The UN adopted the idea of a yearly theme.
2011: 100 year centenary of International Women's Day.
Today: The world has witnessed a massive change and attitude shift in both women's and society's thoughts about women, their rights and equality for all. Daily, improvements are being made but there are still many to be altered.
Make everyday International Women's Day; then we'll witness a fully gender-equal society.

Let's Talk: The Me Too Lariat & RAINN October 18, 2017 20:42
Hi, I'm Mo, founder/designer of ADORNIA. I was also the victim of sexual abuse as a child. Our lariat collection, with each necklace centered around a specific word, reclaim words such as nasty, gay, and woke proudly and unite women through shared meaning. The Me Too lariat we launched today seeks to give voice to women who are survivors of sexual violence. I created the necklace for myself, because I had something to say on the matter, and that I was no longer ashamed. But I also wanted to share it with you. 100% of profits will be donated to RAINN, the Rape Abuse Incest National Network (https://www.rainn.org), the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. On all other products listed on our site, 10% of profits will be donated to RAINN through the end of December.

- The Young Women's Leadership Schools, a high-performing network of all-girls public secondary schools.
- The College-Bound Initiative, a comprehensive college guidance program for young women and men.
New Donation Model at ADORNIA July 31, 2017 21:20
Starting with August 2017, we've moved away from donating proceeds from some lariat necklaces to now donating for every single lariat sold. Whereas prior, 10% of proceeds would only be donated from sales of woke, gay, and nasty lariats, now donations will be made across the board.
Also, excitingly we'll be donating 10% of monthly net profits from the collection to a different charity monthly. Each charity must show a track record of empowering women. Our first charity for month of August 2017 is Dress for Success. DFS is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. We're glad to help make boss look like bosses across the country!
