Sweet little Adore Charms from Anna Ruth Henriques remind me of shadow boxes in miniature form, but with a vast and downright adorable range of photos. Set under glass in a sterling frame, the pendants are strung from ribbons available in a rainbow of colors. I spied these darling amulets at the summer edition of the Jewelers of America show, and they’ve lingered in my mind ever since. (I can’t resist anything that’s happy and bright.) These come in 80 different designs, though the artist is also doing custom orders for stores. Her inspiration for the cute styles carries over from her signature line: “I like to make pieces that carry meaning whether it’s spiritual, or empowering, or a memory of a place or person or event,” she says. Each pendant retails for $120.
