I am the founder & owner of The Tiny Tassel, an e-commerce and brick and mortar jewelry, clothing, and accessories boutique. We design and hand-make most of the styles in our shop and also curate handmade goods from local Black women led brands. I attended the College of Charleston and have lived here for 12 years.

How would you describe your style as it relates to fashion, art, interiors, etc.?
Colorful and joyful, whether it's a pair of statement earrings that I'm wearing or a the way I color coordinate my bookshelves at home, these things are meant to bring an instant smile to my face and hopefully to others too.
What is inspiring you these days?
Lately I've loved following along florists and gardeners, it's really beautiful to see the way that they're able to create art out of such natural beauties and and also kind of marvel in the fact that things are just grown this beautifully. The colors of the flowers and things grown by the gardeners are so captivating.
What is your favorite thing to collect?
Right now, I've loved collecting these tiny woven pig purses. They're so cute and whimsical and a little impractical but they bring me so much joy! I found my first one at the farmer's market in Dallas and ever since I've had fun adding new colors and sizes to my collection.
