Great Finds On-Line
by Marjorie Miller
Hello, if you don't already know by now, as millions surely already do, my name is Marjorie. People know me as a bead jewelry designer with an obsessive penchant for gemstones, pearls, more gemstones, more pearls, even more gemstones and even more pearls, and, of course, all the other stuff, like chain, wire, sterling silver, and you know what else, I don't have to tell you. And if you have heard that I spend more time on the internet than God, well, you might be right. I am always on the lookout for the next great thing in jewelry. It could be yours. (Actually, it should be mine, but you know me....) I hang out at Land of Odds (www.landofodds.com), and you can reach me there anytime. Point my nose in the right direction -- jewelry on-line that people will want to talk about. And, darling, you better believe this is my real nose. The jewelry ain't fake either. Let me take your hand, and guide your eye to see the treasures I have found ....

The 25 year old self taught artist and mother grew up in the outer suburbs of Melbourne and began designing jewellery at the age of 16. Originally being given out as gifts for friends and family, it soon took on a life of it's own.
It was in 2004 after moving to Noosa on the Sunshine Coast when Adrienne decided to pursue her career as a jewellery artist and designer full time.
Urge the Boys launched their first collection in November of 2007. While they received positive reviews throughout local media & fashion websites, it wasn't until their Winter 2008 Collection was released that they really started grabbing attention for their ecclectic & whimsical creations.
Urge the Boys were recently featured in an article for the Noosa Weekender & were seen in the July & August editions of Vogue Australia, as well as throughout this years Big Brother Friday Night Live on host Bree Amer.
More recently though, 2008 Australian Idol stylist Sheridan Tyler has requested Urge jewellery for the contestants on this years show.
Urge the Boys jewellery is distinctive by design. With an aura of romance & vintage glamour met with strong, modern designs and quirky elements, their collections are created to inspire and provoke thought, to become a part of your collection, your journey.
Each piece that is created is designed with love and honesty, with a particular attention to detail and quality. Urge believes that you leave a piece of yourself in everything you do, and hope that their love & happiness is injected into your world through their jewellery.
