Bonnie Doonan founded Studio Adorn in 2017. After travelling around the world, drawing inspiration from India to Australia, she then returned to her roots in Norwich and started making jewellery from her kitchen table. With a background in interior architecture, the combination of her two passions merged to make studio adorn what it is today. After the birth of her daughter Isla in 2017, the business has continued to grow from strength to strength. Winning design awards and being stocked globally, Studio Adorn moved from the kitchen table to its own studio in the heart of Norwich in 2019 with a collective of female creatives. Recently, the Studio Adorn team grew by two more, with Bonnie welcoming her son Sonny and first team member, Morgan.
Simplicity is key in the design process, creating pieces with a minimalist aesthetic with constantly evolving inspirations. Each piece is handcrafted to order using 925 sterling silver by Bonnie and Morgan.
