What inspired you to start making earrings, did you always have a knack for being innovative? I like to think of myself as an innovator and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE and am addicted to earrings. So when I was thinking of how to expand my brand, I thought…”well, earrings are my thing and vintage is my signature, so how can I combine the two and do something different that not everyone is doing?” I wanted to stand apart from everyone else that I knew of in the accessory business. I was out and about one day, and it dawned on me to start making ear gear using vintage fabrics and vintage finding to combine the two.
Yes, those two things exactly, and also a nod to vintage. Not everyone embraces the vintage look in clothing, but if I can still someway put a little vintage on a lot of women, that is awesome too. Also, it’s a measure of “going green” being that these vintage scraps/fabrics are still being worn and used in a different way.
