Q: What is your favorite book? Where do you get inspiration from?
A: I don’t have a favorite book but I did just re-read Olive Kitteridge which is sublime. So is The Shipping News. Also, Anne of Green Gables is way up there.
Inspiration is everywhere! People on the street, songs, overheard snippets, dreams, thunderstorms, everywhere.
Q: Do you use consignment or wholesale approach for the jewelry you carry from others?
A: When I started I did almost everything on consignment (even stationery!) but now we buy at wholesale and only do consignment in a few rare cases where it works for the designer as well.
