Recently Todd took to Instagram to answer your questions! Many of you were wondering about Todd’s signature style and inspiration, so we wanted to share a few here. If you have questions that we haven't answered, feel free to leave a comment below, send us a message on Instragram or email us.
When did you or how did you decide on your own style?
I had my own style from the beginning. I did not know any other jewelers when I started, the internet was not a thing and I had not yet seen any magazines. My inspirations were like plates of food and Native American work I had seen. It was easy to just make what I wanted without any outside influence.
How has your style or preferences changed over the years and what metals/styles/themes do you feel drawn to now?
I am using the same materials now as I did at the beginning but I just have gotten better at understanding the materials and gotten better at fabricating and executing Designs.
Now having developed a signature style, do you feel restrained by it at all?
I do not feel restrained as about 60% of my work is custom for clients. Also in my production I am focused on one-of-a-kind designs - I never get bored of designing.
What other creative outlets do you have?
I have many creative outlets and somehow still feel like I want to create more - not sure what’s wrong with me! I paint and draw and sculpt and dance and make crafts in glass and concrete and wood and apply creative solutions and design to everything I do. I am passionate about cooking but ultra passionate about baking and decorating.
What is one of the most important lessons you learned during your journey in becoming a renowned jeweler and businessman?
To follow my intuition and trust my passion.
Do you find inspiration when you’re alone? Out of office
Hmmmn, good question. I tend to feel inspiration at any time. Like at the airport, or during a conversation, but mostly when I’m feeling very in love and my eyes are sparkling with passion.
What has inspired you deeply?
Deep Love and deep suffering.
