What does jewelry mean to you?
All right, so if I am 100% honest, jewelry used to mean nothing to me if you would’ve asked me this question two years ago. I never found it ‘necessary.’ Whatever that means haha. And the reason I changed my mind is a funny story. My boyfriend, Sam, started buying me jewelry….How could I not wear it when he so thoughtfully bought it for me? So as I started incorporating it in to my style I came to appreciate how a simple necklace or bracelet could represent an extension of myself. Sam gave me a vintage fish necklace that he bought for me in Charleston, South Carolina, which we (for no real reason) named Fernando haha. And every time I wear it, it brings me back to that special trip. So I guess jewelry serves as a time capsule for me. As it holds onto memories that I never want to forget. On the flipside, I am a simple person so jewelry also makes it so I can wear a pair of jeans, a white shirt, and just dress it up with jewelry.
Tell us about your design style and the inspiration behind your piece.
I like my jewelry to feel like second skin; I don’t want to know I’m wearing it. So, I wanted to design a piece that was simple and delicate but not boring, that I could wear everyday and for any occasion. Lately, I have been obsessed with choker necklaces and opals/moonstones and wanted to combine the two. I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out and I can see myself wearing it every.single.day. And ironically, I’m just now realizing that this necklace has 6 moonstones on it, one for each person in my family!
If you could pick one celebrity to wear your piece of jewelry, who would it be?
Oh that’s a hard one because I have so many people I would want to wear this piece. But, I would have to go with the impeccable Emma Watson.
