How would you describe your jewellery?
Bold, timeless, authentic and vintage.
What does your job entail?
I love unique materials so, a lot of my work involves sourcing for materials. I use everything from beads, to junk, to antiques, to recycled things. I love to experiment with all kinds of materials.
How did you branch into fashion styling and acting?
I love fashion and I am always experimenting with my looks. People would meet me and love the way I dressed. That is how I fell into styling last year. When it comes to acting, I have always loved acting so when the opportunity came, I grabbed it. I do not like to limit myself. I have acted in a couple of public shows.
What was your childhood dream?
I wanted to be a pilot and a news anchor, but by the time I was finishing high school, I knew my strength was in art.
