SB: Describe the first piece of jewelry you made that you were proud of.
JW: The Engraved Marquis Leaf Earring, which is one of our top selling styles, was one of the first pieces that felt like a branded classic immediately. I had a strong feeling about it — fortunately clients feel the same and often begin their collection with this piece.
SB: Is there a piece that you sold that you wish you had kept for yourself?
JW: As long as my pieces are in loving hands I’m happy!
SB: Describe a dream design that you haven’t made yet.
JW: I am constantly designing and producing new pieces, if there is something that I want to create, it usually happens fairly quickly.
SB: What other career would you pursue if you did not design jewelry?
JW: I feel very fortunate to have had 2 careers, dance and jewelry design, that were born of a genuine desire to be creative and follow my passion. I really have no idea what else I’d pursue!
SB: Was there a turning point in your life that led you to jewelry design?
JW: I began designing jewelry while I was still dancing with the New York City Ballet. It was something I always wanted try. It began as a hobby, but organically turned into much more – I got my retail start selling pieces to other dancers in my dressing room!
SB: Finish this statement: When I’m not making/designing jewelry, I am…
JW: Relaxing or out enjoying delicious meal with my husband!
SB: What is your motto?
JW: You can’t take potential with you.
