What is your attitude towards jewelry?
Jewelry should complement and complete your outfit.
What are your jewelry style secrets/philosophies?
Only have one statement piece on at a time. Too much is just too much.
What type of jewelry can you not live without?
What piece of jewelry do you think every woman should own and why?
Diamond studs. They go with everything - sweats, suits or a ball gown.
What were some of your favorite pieces from our website, Joolwe.com?
Sterling Silver double hoops, Elle Collection. Love these because they can work with suits as well as casual.
Who is your style icon and why?
Kate Hepburn. She mixes the practical with the glamorous and is understated yet, with an impact.
What’s the biggest mistake you’ve seen that people make while wearing jewelry?
Too much and too matchy-matchy! Either the statement earrings, necklace, bracelet or rings … not all of them!
