HOW DO YOU FEEL IN THIS MOMENT?

A little sleepy since it's mid afternoon.

 

 

CAN YOU GIVE US THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU AS A PERSON?

Wandering, curious, relaxed

 

 

WHAT DOES YOUR IDEAL DAY LOOK LIKE?

An ideal day for me is just following my boring little routine: making breakfast and coffee, doing something productive with my morning energy, going for a walk to lunch with my husband, feeding neighborhood cats, maybe doing a little yoga and then putting my feet up and watching a good horror movie.

 

 

 

TELL US ABOUT YOUR VINTAGE JEWELY BRAND, SOUVENIR. HOW DID IT START?

I started working on it during my honeymoon as a way to bring back little Souvenirs from different places I visited. I really connected with this idea of tying jewelry to specific places and moments in time.

 

 

WHAT MAKES JEWELRY SPECIAL FOR YOU?

I love how totemic a piece of jewelry can be. How slipping on something so tiny can totally affect how you feel on a personal level. Make you feel nostalgic or optimistic or strong.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE JEWELRY AND WHY? IS THERE A SPECIAL MEMORY ATTACHED TO IT?

One of my favorite pieces are from my grandparents, a round pendant with their initials and a blue sapphire in the middle, a gift to all 25 grandchildren on their 70th wedding anniversary. It was such a special occasion celebrating 70 years of their love together with the whole family being in one place, I will never forget how happy my grandfather was entering the ballroom with my grandma like a newly wedded couple.
