How We Got Started:
Patrick originally started selling his new and unique jewelry creations in 2015. He used social media to grow his company and find customers. Throughout this whole journey he noticed that there were a lot of people interested in the actual making process itself rather than just purchasing a finished product. However, the scale required to successfully create a jewelry supply company was a bit too ambitious for what Patrick felt he could pull off at the time. But within a couple of years the social media growth had reached a point where he finally decided it was time to start. So in January of 2018, Patrick Adair Supplies was born! Patrick brought in his older brother Elliott to be the CEO of the business. Meanwhile, Patrick focused on the product development and video content creation side of the business.
With lots of help and feedback from the community, he launched many great products and created all sorts of videos featuring them and showing fellow makers how he liked to use them. Many of these products didn’t otherwise exist at the time of their creation, and he’s very proud of all of the unique and creative jewelry that has been made possible because of this. Since then his focus has been on helping nurture the growth of the company, focusing on training PAS employees on how to successfully create new exciting products and then communicate how to creatively use them with all of our amazing customers. He has also been working on a few exciting new jewelry related projects that he’s looking forward to sharing with the PAS community soon! In typical start-up style, we got started with what we had, in the early days we only had a dozen or so available products, but slowly over time and product by product we have now grown the company into something amazing.
Today both Patrick Adair Designs and Patrick Adair Supplies are staples in the jewelry supply business, known worldwide for providing quality products. We strive to be an affordable, convenient, one-stop-shop for all the supplies a maker would need in order to create the unique jewelry styles that we cater to. We’re not stopping any time soon, and we look forward to continued growth within this awesome community.
Meet Our Current Team:
Patrick is not only the namesake and founder of the company, he is a pioneer in the ring making world. It all started with a slab of carbon fiber, a rotary tool, and a dream of designing unique jewelry. He created rings using unusual materials in his parents' basement on weekends while in college. When he began filming the creation of these rings, he didn't realize he would quickly gain a worldwide following.
Patrick started selling his new and unique jewelry creations in 2015 through his company Patrick Adair Designs. Throughout this journey he noticed that there were a lot of people interested in the actual ring-making process rather than just purchasing a finished ring. These would-be ring makers started asking where they could get the supplies Patrick used in his videos.
The scale required to successfully build a jewelry supply company was a bit too ambitious for what Patrick felt he could pull off at the time, but he eventually made that dream a reality. He brought in his older brother Elliott to be the CEO of the business, and they started Patrick Adair Supplies in 2018.
Patrick focused on the product development and video content creation side of the business. With lots of help and feedback from the community, he launched a variety of great products and filmed videos showing both how to use them and the end results. Many of these items didn’t otherwise exist at the time, and he’s very proud of all of the unique and creative jewelry that has been made possible because of this.
More recently, his focus has been on helping nurture the growth of the company, concentrating on training PAS employees to successfully design new, valuable products and communicating to our customers how to creatively use them. Patrick has also been working on some exciting new jewelry-related projects that he’s looking forward to sharing with the PAS community soon!

Sarah does customer support, social media, order fulfillment, and website work. After graduating from the University of Utah she started a nonprofit called Topaz Fairy Project where she acts as a "magical fairy friend" sending care packages to kids experiencing hardships.
