   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.
