Below is a fun Q&A with the talented girl behind the jewels, Audra!

1. Nickname? “Audball.”

2. Where are you from? "I was originally born in Roswell, New Mexico, and later raised in Lubbock, Texas."

3. What is one item you would never leave the house without? "A roll-on stick of fresh perfume."

4. If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be? “A lace-up, wedge heel bootie in fantastic black leather! Just saying it gets me excited and makes me feel powerful.”

5. Who is your celebrity crush? “Kit Harington from Game of Thrones. An accent with shaggy hair and puppy dog eyes- that’s a killer combo!”

6. What was the last song playing in your car? "Wading in the Velvet Sea- Phish."

7. What inspired you to design jewelry? "A college research project in an Ancient African History writing course. I was so interested in studying the materials and natural elements used to adorn people throughout different cultures."

8. Who is your favorite jewelry designer? "Elizabeth and Kathryn Fortunator of Lizzie Fortunato Jewels.”

9. What is your favorite thing to do in Austin? "Wake up on a Saturday, pop into a neighborhood coffee shop, and order a yummy breakfast. I could sit for hours and read a book or people watch some of the visitors."

10. One thing most people don’t know about you? "As much as I love jewelry, I have a fear of over doing it. I’ll never forget this Coco Chanel quote I read in a book that influences my style: "When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on." I’m a firm believer that sometimes too much can be distracting. If you’re on your way out the door and throw on something last minute, it probably wasn’t necessary. If you have confidence, that’s all you need!"

Statement necklaces are trending everywhere lately, and NYFW didn’t disappoint!  After interning for Kendra Scott, I’ve realized how one chunky gem can make any outfit go from day to night.  Here are some of my top picks…

  1.  Lauren Elan Sunshine Necklace
  2.  Festival ‘Til Dawn Necklace
  3.  DannieJo Rea Necklace
  4.  Zahara Bib Necklace
  5.  Asos Necklace
  6.  Kendra Scott Sandy Necklace

Collared shirts are all the rage this season, and ever since I purchased Kendra Scott’s Sandy necklace, I have been wearing delicious collar candy to dress up my neckline any chance I get.  A button up shirt paired with a bold statement necklace is a perfect way to dress up a simple silhouette.  If you want to add some of these beautiful baubles to your everyday attire, check out Kendra Scott and J.Crew
