|What was the inspiration behind the earrings?
I lean towards using an outrageous combination of materials. Combining components such as quartz crystal, abalone, mother of pearl, these are materials that would not typically go together but it works well. It was inspiring to combine Silvia's fabric- gingham and stripes- as it worked very well with the use of unusual materials.
What was the creative process for these pieces like?
The creative process for developing these pieces was very unique. The concept starts by placing items side by side and seeing how the color and texture of different materials work together. I loved the idea of combining unexpected components with Silvia's bright and colorful patterns to create earrings that are one of a kind.
|How did the collaboration come to be?
The collaboration came to be through Linda Fargo, a dear friend of mine. Linda had arranged an event in her shop at Bergdorf's. Upon meeting at the event for the first time, Silvia and I fell in love with each other and that day the collaboration was born.
What is your favorite aspect of the Silvia Tcherassi brand?
I love the whimsical prints, colors and elegance of the Silvia Tcherassi brand. I am inspired by the ability to use patterns and bold colors while remaining true to her chic and elegant aesthetic.
