ABOUT


Meet Jasmine, our talented adoreu designer

Thanks for taking the time to visit adoreu, my name is Jasmine Shepherd I am the Designer and Proud Owner.
I am truly blessed to be able to say "I love what I do".  I am passionate about creating pieces with meaning, pieces that capture an experience, a moment in time, a memory.   Inspiration for my designs are drawn from life experiences, travel and nature. 
 
I am lucky enough to be based in Launceston, which is a gorgeous and historic
Northern Tasmanian city with real country charm, the perfect place to inspire the creative and to raise a family. 

 
Seeking a creative outlet while on maternity leave with Son Ollie in 2010, I started adoreu, it was primarily a hobby, which to my utter delight and surprise grew into a successful business.  Always looking for that individual and unique niche, I quickly moved from fabric to resin, however after many months I started suffering from allergies from the resin and decided to take sometime away from adoreu while fulfilling my dream to work with Sterling Silver.   2014, was a new beginning for adoreu and I released my handmade Sterling Silver Range "Karlek" this range was been a huge success.   Throughout my adoreu journey my true passion and love for design has taken a wonderful new turn and in 2015 I was thrilled to release my collection in Sterling Silver and Rose Gold.

Designed in my warm and cosy home based studio,  adoreu is very much a family business, in May 2016 we welcomed our new addition Frankie Isabelle and late October, 2017 will see our third addition arrive.  After years of fertility challenges our growing family and they journey we have endured has made me more inspired and motivated to create jewellery that touch peoples hearts with sincere meaning.  My husband Ben has been a huge support  throughout our journey.   He is my sounding board and plays a huge role in the direction of adoreu and designs that are created.   I hope there is something in our collection that connects with you or the special person you are purchasing for.  Thanks again, Jas
