Q What’s your favorite piece of jewelry right now?
A Lately I have been really into pearls. I have this pearl necklace that is extremely versatile! I can wear it as a long necklace, double the strands a short necklace or even wrap the pearls around my wrist as a multiple strand bracelet. The crystal magnetic clasp gives it a vintage look and creates a unique design element. This is my go-to for everything from a denim shirt to a party dress.
Q How long have you been making jewelry?
A I have been making jewelry since I learned how to weave friendship bracelets back in elementary school. I became bored with the string and started taking apart my mother’s old jewelry so that I could create my own one-of-a-kind pieces. The hobby evolved throughout my childhood and soon enough, I turned the hobby into a business.
Q What’s a must-have piece of jewelry for fall/winter/holiday 2013?
A My Spy Necklace. (Pictured above.)
Q What is inspiring your current collection?
A It’s all about the sparkle to ring in the holiday feeling. The more the merrier.
Q Best piece of advice on wearing/styling jewelry?
A Jewelry should be a representation of your personality. If you’re feeling bold, wear something bold. Don’t be afraid to pair a great statement necklace with a plain t-shirt. You can be comfortable and look chic without trying too hard.
