I hated modeling. I was so scared. But as soon as I started doing jewelry, I did better as a model.
I am jewelry and objects together. This is the Elsa Peretti name to me. It is a very good balance for me to try and create with the person in mind or with the space in mind - to imagine a bowl of fruit or something for water. It is a little bit yin and yang.
I hate that impeccable, perfectly perfect look, all matched and prearranged.
A lot of designers still have nostalgia for the past. As for the furniture in the future, I hope they use less of real wood. Conservation in wood is necessary.
A big diamond necklace is nouveau riche, really. People who have wealth a long time don't wear such things.
