The Adelle Necklace I - Upcylced Circa 1890s Hand Carved Art Nouveau Coral Cameo in High Relief with Genuine Pearls - Symbols of Love Purity and Protection - Altered Heirlooms by Nouveau Motley
"Nouveau Motley is a one (wo)man show that consists of me; Rachael Victoria Adams formally of Sonoma County, California. Endlessly tinkering in a drafty old barn (now a crooked Florida bungalow) and occasionally venturing outside to take photographs, play in the dirt, acquire more art supplies, and gain inspiration, I have a passion for the past and love the present.
I have formal education in photography, painting, sculpture, metalsmithing, anthropology, and art history (I was a perpetual student with many interests). Arts and crafts have always been a passion and I am constantly learning and utilizing new techniques and areas of the field.
I like creating art and collecting/reselling antique and vintage items that have a function. If you can use or wear it, its not clutter. At least thats what I tell myself."
