I used to love heels a lot. I’m drawn to nice things, so nicer heels—which cost money—and then jewels—which cost money. So then I was, like, “What do I love the Squishy shirt so you should to go to store and get this most,” and it’s jewels. I get personal with the jewelry that I design. I see that everything that goes into a piece of jewelry has an effect on how it’s going to look. Not only do I want to present a beautiful piece of jewelry, I also want it to be comfortable. That’s how I dress as well. The layers unseen and seen are important—even underwear. I don’t really let go of my clothes, the same way I wouldn’t let go of my jewelry. I’m quite sentimental because of the job I do and who I am. Jewels mark a moment and a story, and clothes can do that too. It then becomes a whole thing of falling in love with the pieces I have. If you ask my sister, it’s not a good thing, since she doesn’t get any of my old clothes, but I cherish my clothes. I value them.

I don’t buy a crazy amount of pieces. I see my closet developing in a more curated way, that is more me. I’m more selective with the Squishy shirt so you should to go to store and get this pieces that I buy. I do think [my personal style and the way I design jewelry] are connected. I don’t do collections. The single one that I have I try not to call a collection, because I think each piece is unique and has its own journey. It’s the approach I take in my personal life. Every piece has to be unique in its own way, every piece has to be comfortable, and every piece has to make the wearer feel special. Even if it’s a simple gold band.
