A RING FROM OLIVESANDPEARLS!
Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hello my lovely fashionistas! My name is Dala and I’m a half Kuwaiti, half Palestinian, and 100% fabulous! I recently graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts from Purdue University (Boiler up!) and I’m now living in Phoenix, AZ. I’m an interior designer by day and a jewelry designer by night.
How did you get into making jewelry?
I started making jewelry during my second year of grad school. It was a great way to help pay for tuition. It was also a form of meditation that helped me distress after a long day of teaching and designing.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I don’t know how to answer this question! Ideas just pop into my head… literally! I guess the ideas come from my observations and analysis of my surroundings.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not designing jewelry?
Routine drives me absolutely mad! I always have something exciting planned after a long week of work… this week I took a cooking class. Next week I start scuba diving lessons. Sky diving is next on the list.
