On her love for designing jewelry:
"It was very organic, I have always had a passion for design. My first boyfriend bought me a sewing machine for my birthday, but when I was in the workshop at school I felt more at home. That is where my passion for jewelry first started; now being seasoned in the fashion industry I can use what I know and have learned along the way. I started my company a few years ago now."

On her jewelry:
"The collection is fine jewelry consisting of gold, platinum and diamonds focused around the simple but profound structure of the pyramid. I like clean, simple architectural lines and jewelry that is timeless and classic, but has a strong modern relevance. I designed jewelry that I thought would be very empowering to women and give them a voice."

her favorite things about modeling:
"The travel, meeting new people, new worlds. Meeting and working with designers one-on-one. I will never forget the first time I met Valentino... or Rick Owens, or Karl Lagerfeld. I have some great stories!"

On her five-year plan:
"Becoming more and more spiritual, learning and growing. I also just got the travel bug, I have been traveling since I was 16 for modeling, but now I want to really travel, take some time off and explore the world with a backpack and a camera."
