5 Questions for Cynthia Dugan

What is the philosophy behind your line?
Timeless jewelry worn by all that always has a slight edge and whimsical twist.

What inspires your designs?
I love the history of people, like famous sculptors – Paul Dubois, Rusmungy – or famous people like Joan of Arc or Queen Victoria. I love special touches that make your jewelry look different than most.

Does your current collection have a theme? What is the inspiration behind it?
We are definitely multitasking each season. We celebrate the Native American, a toast to the roaring ’20s, a piece of Woodstock, love charms, winning charms, fairies, and an energized lion.

What is your best accessorizing advice?
Accessories are just that, they enhance what you are wearing or what you are not wearing. Your accessories should accent the clothing, tie an outfit together, or be a focal point to look at.

Do you follow Coco Chanel’s rule: “take one piece off before you leave the house”?
Probably not. Sometimes it is put another one or two pieces on, and then again, it’s just take all but one piece off.
