“Over time, I think my ideas about having a store were slowly changing.”
“If I had worked under someone else, I don’t know if it would have worked as well.”
“Self-taught is a funny word because in some ways inspiration means that you get out of your own way and allow it to come through you.”
“If it’s like music, the earrings are kind of like the drums – just keeps the beat – and the artwork is like the melody.”
