It’s nice to meet you!
In a snap shot: I’m a wife (to Shaun), a mama (to Jakey, 8 and Nico, 18 months), a jewelry designer, and an always hungry foodie.
I’m a native Los Angeleno raised by Italian grandparents from a large family of 5 siblings. I am a big believer in faith, love, and the power of a good meal.
Design Inspirations - Constantly chasing a dream
- I’m drawn to rich hues, soft textures, and layers.
- Timeless beauty reigns over fast trends in my book.
- Pearls are a way of life and I can never have enough of them.
- A good book can cure even the bleakest of day, as can my sons’ laughter!
Glistening color palettes, infused with metallics, and grounded by natural stones are always dancing in my mind.
Family Life - Always Hungry
Cooking is in so many ways my happy place. It is the way I express love to my family. If I’m not at the AOS studio, then I am in the kitchen!
Since I mainly cook quicker dinners during the week, our weekends revolve around grocery shopping and big family meals with my siblings.
The Farmers Market is heaven to me! There are few things I enjoy more than chatting with the farmers about their bounty and teaching my kids the importance of buying small from real people that work hard everyday at their craft.
I love seeing the baby’s face covered in strawberry bits and hearing Jakey ask the farmers about their livestock.
An Old Soul - My Gratitude
An Old Soul started on a dining room table in 2013, where I handmade each and every piece that I sold. Jakey would play with Thomas the Tank Engine underneath the table and I would sing songs with him while I crocheted.
AOS pieces are now made at a small studio down the street from my house. I have six wonderful women that help me create all the product that we ship out across the country!
My family still eats dinner on that table every night. It’s the center of my home and now Nico enjoys playing with Mickey Mouse underneath it. At night when the kids are asleep, I love to sit there and crochet to get ahead on the next day’s work.
An Old Soul is truly a family business and I’m eternally grateful to you for supporting a mother’s dream!Continue reading
