What kind of music do you listen to while you’re working?

Ragtime, early jazz, classical, punk, lounge jazz, and 80s synth/New Wave.

What’s your favorite piece of Dune Jewelry and why?

My favorite piece at Dune is the Marina necklace. It is one of the most versatile and easy to wear pieces at Dune. I can dress it up and down with whatever I wear with it. The bold size and the simplicity of the shape really let each sand speak for itself, in both texture and saturated color.

What’s your favorite beach sand? Have you ever been there? Why do you love it?

My favorite sand is the black sand of Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester, MA. I have never been there. It’s purely an aesthetic reason: I love the black color with the silver shimmer. It goes with effortlessly with everything I wear.
