Accomplishments are things that were achieved successfully. Given that I had fewer than three weeks to design 14 NEW jewelry looks and present them on a runway, I’d say ‘yes’ it was an accomplishment.

Saturday night my name went up in lights and I'm proud to say that I tackled my fear right in the face. I did it and I'm proud. I was down to the wire and actually quite scared but I stared my fear right in the eye and took it straight on. When the music began and they announced my name, the hair rose on my arms, and it was an indescribable feeling. Kind of like crossing the finish line at the marathon but 100% better because this is my passion. Jewelry design is my life and I did it!

Follow your dreams and never stop!
