Can you describe your aesthetics?
I like things to be elegant and worn in. Playful and meaningful. I suppose contrast is important.
Do you have a personal favourite piece of jewellery?
Of my own pieces I cannot choose a favorite! They are meaningful to me and I tend to get into phases with which ones I wear daily. My grandmother gave me a collection of silver sewing thimbles as a child, and my boyfriend recently gave me a gold antique articulated fish pendant, those would be favorites outside of the collection.
