The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

Nancy Lismer of Adornments has been involved with 100 Mile Finds for quite a while now and we are so glad to have met her. Her work is extraordinary, and she is always coming up with new ideas. "Inspiration is drawn from all things Nancy finds aesthetically pleasing including flowers, rocks & shells, wrought iron work, and many forms of art. The materials used include sterling silver, handmade Italian glass beads (that she lampworks), Swarovski crystal and semi-precious stones".

Nancy is always thinking about new ways to promote her gorgeous wares. She wanted everyone to know about o Adornments jewellery website and facebook page, the "Gallery of the Adorned", a showcase devoted to the wearers of Adornments jewellery. If you would like to be part of the permanent gallery send a digital photo of yourself wearing any of your Adornments jewellery to, the jewellery must be visible!

Nancy will be featured at the spring Made by Hand show this Saturday (April 21), booth 144, and would love to say hi. She has a link on her blog for a $1 off coupon for admission too - (kids are free by the way).


  1. I have several pairs of Nancy's earrings and recieve many compliments on the uniqueness and style of her adornments. I would recommend them highly. Linda Clark, Executive Interim Recruiter.

  2. What I love most about Nancy's pieces is their versatility – appropriate for both at work and at play! My favorite are her ‘Rosalia’ necklaces (I have 6), as they can be worn long, short, and even as a bracelet.
