What do you enjoy most about the jewelry industry?
Besides taking part of some spectacular moments in peoples lives, I love the fact that you can just have a gigantic sales day out of the blue. The thrill of the unknown so to speak.
What is something you can’t live without?
My family…if that doesn’t count as a thing, it would have to be the Ocean.
What piece/type of jewelry will be in high demand for Holiday 2015?
I am excited about many things: I love what Forevermark is doing with two stone diamond jewelry, I love the geometric jewelry trend, yellow gold and ear climbers too!
How did you get started in the jewelry industry?
After graduating from University of Florida, my parents suggested I take my surfboard and head across the country to study in residence at GIA in Santa Monica and see if I liked learning about diamonds and gems. Long story short, I love it.
