I am working to expand the line to include those -- there will be new designs and also just variety on some of the existing jewelry. You use really unique city names, how did you decide to do that?
Do you love to travel? Is each city important to you? A lot of the city names started out as cities that really meant something to me. Either I have been there or had a nice experience there. Some are places that I want to go in the future. I am really proud of that.

Do you have a famous butch or celeb that you would like to see wearing your pieces on the red carpet? He has an awesome style.
It was a dream come true. Hopefully she will wear it soon in public!
But maybe it was a piece to wear in private. Let's talk about the charity pieces. How do you decide who to benefit? Do they approach you? I have approached each and every one of them.
I started off with the Equality Bracelet. And then I started getting in to it more and more because it turned out to be one of my most favorite things to do. And then, after that I am going to do one for Autism.
My half-sister is autistic, and I also get so many requests for these. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is pretty awesome about being involved in the Positivity bracelet, and I am sending them a bunch of bracelets to use for their fundraising efforts at the Maryland chapter.
A black positivity bracelet is coming normally it's orange. I did one for Obama that was called the Forward Bracelet. The campaign came to me to ask if I wanted to do it. Also, there's the Rock the Vote bracelet. I am very interested in keeping that going. It is my passion. How much jewelry is too much?

I ask quietly counting all I have on a multitude of earrings, watch, several cuffs, my wedding ring, and a necklace There are a couple of rules. If you are wearing a really big piece -- necklace, bracelet, or ring -- that should be the main attraction.Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley - Affairs Of The Heart
Everything else should be little. If you are just wearing little pieces, then go according to your style.

Some people's style is to wear lots. If you are walking out the door and you are questioning, then take something off. It's up to your own personal instinct.

I have been so happy to be back and it really feels like home for good. I miss my NY friends but thankfully, I see them a lot. I feel more settled now and really happy. It all started when I was working for a jewelry company in NYC.
