What sort of fashion do you create?
As far as the jewelry goes that I make, it's clean, modern, Scandinavian-inspired.

Right now I'm getting ready for another opening at Flow Modern Design Gallery in Palm Springs in February during Palm Springs' Modernism Week, so, I'm working on several things at once. Today, I will finish a sterling silver women's ring that has a "wood grain", and an onyx and Tahitian pearl pendant.
What's the favorite thing you've ever designed?
A ring with coral and a 12 millimeter pearl. Also, a sterling brutalistic pendant with 18kt gold.
Can you tell me a little bit about your own style?
I like classic things that won't go out of style. A good jacket, scarf, little black dress. Changing accessories with basic pieces goes a long way. If you buy a good, investment piece of clothing, it will last a lifetime and will always look good. Trendy things fall by the wayside and you can waste money.
