I have always been inspired by iconic women from different genres, decades, and places. I admire the strength, playfulness, individuality, and style of such women as Erika Badu, Missy Elliott, Twiggy, Grace Jones, Adele, Diana Ross, Madonna, and Lucille Ball. I aim to capture this essence in Girlina, my line of jewelry designs. I like mixing soft and hard materials which comes through in my use of fabric, metal, and wood. While I aim for my jewelry to make a bold statement, I pay close attention to comfort and wearability and intentionally pick materials that are extremely lightweight. I love modern, clean lines, with retro and textured patterns. Imperfection is something I genuinely embrace when it comes to women, so my earrings rarely match perfectly and all designs are one-of-a-kind or one of a very limited series. I also like little surprises and I try to pick unexpected colors and textures to back the earrings. Girlina earrings are lightweight, make a statement, and are handmade in Carrboro, North Carolina, by Annie Maxfield.
