Making jewelry has always been a hobby of mine starting back when I was about ten years old. I have always thought wearing
unique jewelry was a wonderful way of self expression and there is no better way to ensure individuality than to wear the pieces I created myself. The jewelry I make reflects my personal style and aesthetic preferences at the point in time when it was designed
so in a way, the various pieces I have created throughout the years serve as a sort of documentation of my personal growth.

Kolkata, India- my home for the past two Julys of my life lasts imprinted in my memory. Pictured here are treasures gifted and
bought during my time there.
I have traveled quite a bit throughout my life,
and originally, these souvenir spoons served
as reminders of the memories I had created
in the multitude of destinations I had the
privilege of ventur-ing to. Eventually, my collection grew as my
friends and family brought me spoons
from places they had traveled to. So now I
suppose my collec-tion indicates not only places I have been, but
also places I one day hope to travel to.
The Vans Project is something I started back in 2008 when
I was at BFD and MGMT happened to be signing stuff
during a time when I had some down time.
Ever since Ive worn vans when I go to
shows and get them signed by the artist.
I am up to 8 pairs full of signatures, the
most recent having Justin Vernon of
Bon Iver and british post-dubstep artist James Blake sign my
abigail chuWhen someone tells
me of a good restaurant theyve been to, it stays in my head, and I have
to experience it for myself. Its one of my
favorite things to do--to eat somewhere Ive
never been. I even have a food list saved onto my computer so that
I could eventually get to all of them. With all
the places Ive gone, Ive accumulated quite a lot of business cards. They
float around all over my room, in my purses,
and even in my pant pockets.
These are just a few pieces from my giant ticket stub collection. I usually keep every single ticket stub including those from movie
showings to various excursions, and here are just several that stand out.
I recently did a series of hand portraits for a drawing class because I think hands are so expressive and unique. I now have a collection of hand drawings that I made of all of my friends and family. My collection of hand drawings will keep growing as new
people come into my life.
Ive always loved all types of bows, the shape, color, fabric, and how they can add that extra spice to any outfit. I always have
extra fabric lying around so bows are the perfect way to use that up as well as to create the perfect accessory.
A perfect afternoon calls for laying out on warm, soft sands, basking in the sun. These jars of sand are souvenirs from dif-
ferent beaches around the world that my family has traveled to. These beaches represented in the jars are especially famous for
their white, pristine sands.
