“In a big city like Los Angeles, there is no space for normal, people crave originality. This place taught me that the more YOU you are.. the more accepted you'll be.

I found myself getting all these new ideas for necklaces. In the past, I had made jewelry to sell but this time it was different; these pieces were not for anyone but myself.
I made 5 necklaces that day and I don't know if it was the materials I used, the intention that I put into them, or a combination of the two, that gave me a feeling of empowerment every time I'd wear them.
