So tell me a bit about your shop and the inspiration behind its launch
The studio is located in LA. I relocated from NYC last summer. In the studio, there are two assistants, a canary, and soon, a Berger Picard puppy. The jewelry line launched about six years ago after taking a few metal working classes. I realized I absolutely loved it; it reminded me of my fine art sculpture classes when I was a fine art major as an undergrad. A few years later, I launched my jewelry line while I was still a freelance illustrator. A year later, I had transitioned full-time into jewelry.
What are some jewelry trends we're seeing as we move into the spring?
I do keep an eye out for trends but frankly, I usually make what I like. If a design continues to sell strongly, I do modifications and variations on the theme, but when it comes to making a new design, I usually try not to rely on current trends but more on what appeals to me aesthetically.
What should people keep in mind when shopping for jewelry?
I feel that you should buy what you're drawn to...and what you feel you can wear for years, not just because it's on trend.
What advice do you have for people looking for great online shopping deals?
Comparison shop. What may seem like a great deal may not be such a great deal. Often, there is someplace where you can get it for a greater discount. The beauty of the Internet.
What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
My favorite is probably the baby octopus. I'm an avid diver, and I love spotting one when I'm diving.  They are fascinating, intelligent and beautiful to see underwater and up-close.
