1. How did you come up with the name Darling Dilemma?
Well my nickname from a young age was Emma Dilemma...there is debate about weither it was my Uncle Greg who first called me this, or my babysitter but regardless I have to assume it was a well earned moniker.
2. Tell us a little bit about your shop.
As opposed to making mulitples of one or two styles, I try to make one of a kind creations. I like the idea that each piece is almost like a piece of art. I suppose it is my art school training but I crave uniqueness in my wardrobe and acccessories. Of course approaching jewelry making like art making means that I am inspired by all sorts of things from my life...my mother's garden, the beach, music, seasons...
I will be taking the shop in a slightly new direction over the next season though - so make sure you stay tuned for that! Readers can hear about all the new products, contests & updates on my facebook fanpage; http://www.facebook.com/DarlingDilemma
3. What is your favorite kind of jewellery/accessories to wear?
Necklaces. Always necklaces! Big bold statement pieces mostly. I find with my big wild hair, earrings are rarely seen but a funky necklace always attracts attention. I love huge rings too. The thing about large bold accessories is that they can make even the most ordinary outfit into something fabulous.
Well not the getting older part, but pretty much everything else! A great party, pretty wrapping paper on fantastic gifts...cupcakes! Also, since moving to New Brunswick, one or both of my parents have tried to make a birthday visit out to visit. It has made birthday's that much more special now!
