Adesso came about as a result of Founder and Chief Visionary Officer, Samantha Goldstone’s marrying of her two passions of jewelry making and helping others in need. What started in her home has now grown and attracted a team of other like-minded, creative artisans who collaborate on jewelry collections inspired by unique travel, patterns in nature, cultural heritage and vintage finds. In keeping with Adesso’s philosophy to work, live and design locally, all pieces are lovingly handmade in our beautiful atelier in Santa Barbara, California and shipped directly to you in reuseable, hand stamped linen bags. Adesso is sold in over 100 specialty boutiques and stores around the globe. You may have seen Adesso in magazines such as InStyle, People, Lucky, Santa Barbara and O! Oprah Magazine.
Adesso jewelry is created with a distinct combination of vintage and ethnic beads, semi-precious healing stones, wood, eco-leather, silk thread, rope and various metals. Samantha is particularly drawn to combining many different materials together to create the unexpected; this is what keeps Adesso timeless. Some of her favorite materials are vintage African trade beads, antique Ethiopian and Afghan silver and unusual semi-precious stones and charms. Adesso seeks out opportunities to work with artisans working in cottage industries locally and around the globe; keeping Adesso collections fresh and original, yet infused with beautiful elements from the past.
THE ADESSO ATELIER
The Adesso Atelier, our flagship boutique in Santa Barbara, California, was born out of our desire to not only share our jewelry with the world, but also to create community around a collection of well-curated gift, art and home décor items from around the globe. We have created a shopping experience that offers the right mix of Adesso’s love of old world craftsmanship, global influences and inspiration. Keeping with the tradition of a working atelier, all Adesso jewelry is made here.
Giving back to help and empower others who are faced with illness is the reason Adesso was born. Samantha is a cancer survivor and previvor and is grateful to be helping others through her jewelry. The Goods that Give Back collection contains items made by Adesso and other artisans who give back and strive to enhance their community. 100% of the profits from the Adesso Supports pieces go to The Butterfly Project of FORCE (Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered) and Dream Foundation. In addition, Adesso is honored to donate jewelry and participate in ongoing fundraising events with other local and national health-related charities.
