Crafting handmade bracelets and rings at the Adore Jewellery storefront, owner Alexander Carey fuses his grandfather's signature Cape Cod designs with innovative metalworking techniques to create striking, custom-fit baubles. Patrons can glean an eyeful of the artisan's technique while perusing the gallery's boutique adornments, which sparkle with intricate “screwball” designs and the metallic wood grain of pieces crafted with the mokume-gane technique. Coax cats from high trees with a silver Cape Cod Dennis bracelet ($98), or show off some nautical flare with the fish-pendant necklace ($118). To ensure an immaculate fit for every wrist, finger, and 11th toe, Adore's adroit artistes take precise measurements before crafting each piece of body bling.
