What advice would you give to someone who was trying to break into the jewelry business?

I would say to follow your dreams and give it a try. I love jewelry and most people today, men or women, accessorize their everyday outfits. Whether it’s earrings, a statement necklace piece or even a wrap around bracelet, everyone loves jewelry. But also, I would say to come out with something unique, to be different either with your product or your marketing strategy because it is very competitive.

What’s next?

I’ve been working super hard on my blog lately. I hope to have it released before January 2016. I’ve been mostly putting a lot of thought and work in my ‘niche’ and what I want to bring to everyone. So I hope people will enjoy visiting my website.

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?

The Olsen twins are my ultimate dream. I think I have a crush on them — from what they wear on [a] regular day to their runway ‘vintage’ gowns. If there’s anybody I could have dinner with, definitely choose them. I can only imagine where we would go.

What is your dream job?

I’ve always dreamed to work in the fashion industry, whether it’s a designer or a stylist. I love art, and I find myself often wandering in my head and dreaming of ideas I could create. I love everything about what the fashion industry brings to the runways, to the amount of work and effort into a styled photo shoot. I really admire all that beauty and art. I love how it comes together to create something magnificent. I’m still in school, getting a business bachelors, but I hope later on to go into the fashion industry to realize my dreams.
