Where are you from?
I was originally born in a small town close to Warszawa, Poland. My parents and I immigrated to the United States when I was about 3 years old. From then on, I have lived in Chicago, and most recently in Carlsbad, California.
how did you come up with the name "pink with diamonds"?
I grew up working for my uncle in the jewelry industry since the age of 13. I have always had a fascination with jewelry and diamonds. My favorite color has been pink for as long as I can remember. So it was only fitting to name my company, Pink With Diamonds.
how long have you been doing custom jewelry for?
I have been designing jewelry for the last 6 years.
What do you take your pictures with and who takes your pictures?
For Instagram, I use my iPhone 6 and the VSCO cam APP. For all professional pictures, I only trust Wasio Photography. Compared to other photographers, they have a unique and creative eye when they shoot. If I am shooting food pictures, I use the Canon T3I Rebel.
where do you frequently shop?
I love shopping for my basics and essentials at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, or TJMaxx. To find those unique pieces, I shop at the Randolph Street Market Festival. It was there that I discovered, Hopscotch and Soda. They have the BEST vintage dresses, coats and skirts!
can you work with "out of state" customers for designing custom jewelry?
Some of my largest clientele is actually out of state. I work with a lot of clients via email, FaceTime, etc who live in California, Texas, even Australia. My Fed Ex guy and I are on a first name basis!
