Meet your maker–Britlyn! She’s a Hello Adorn maker, artist, yogi, cat mom, and generally just a cool woman around town. She’s been part of the HA team for two years and without her, our world seems less…disco-y? We had her on the pod AND invited ourselves into her home to learn a little bit more about her lair, jewelry layers, and love for rhinestones. The interview only confirmed our suspicions–she IS as cool as she seems.
Whatcha vibin’ with right now?
1. Gin & Ginger Ale with lime
2. Taking my cats outside in the yard
3. Fake nails.
4. Biking to work.
5. Being creative; there’s no better feeling.
6. Disco everything.
7. Marshmallows in my coffee.
8. Dopamine dressing.
9. Peeking out the blinds in the morning.
10. Watching Star Wars in chronological order.
Britlyn’s jewelry essentials: What's in your stack?
Confetti Choker, Dylan Chain Ring, Confetti Ring, Demi Double Annex and sometimes a Demi Hand Chain IF i'm feeling saucy.
What pieces layer well together?
A chunky necklace with something a lil more dainty! For example the Solitaire Choker with a smaller Herra and a Dylan Chain. Cuuuuuuuuuuute.
What’s a great entry level piece to buy for a new HA fan?
I think everyone needs a good choker for layering w/ longer necklaces (Confetti is a must), but I also love a lot of simpler earrings like the Doublet Hoops. Also–never overlook what a good bracelet can do to your aesthetic.
What’s a piece on the site that you love to make?
I love to make New Moon Pendants, Cypress Hoops, Squiggle Rings, wire wrap stones, and make Herkimer Studs.
What’s a moment in your life that really changed the trajectory of where you were headed?
When I moved back to Wisconsin from California. Never thought I would, but I'm so happy I did!
Where do you find inspiration?
All over the place. From interactions with others, being in nature, light, and color. Being in the process of making & trying new things is often the catalyst to more inspiration - once you get the ball rolling, the energy of creativity keeps things in motion.
What color is your aura?
Well, according to the quiz I just took, I have a purple aura. :)
What’s your current fave moment happening in your apartment?
The dining room is almost always my fave spot in my apartment. It gets the best light in the morning, has the cute diner seating, and my plants are all happy.
Tell us the story behind one piece of artwork in your apartment?
I made a portrait of my cat rico with the lego art set, and I’m pretty obsessed with how it turned out.
And we just got kicked out for overstaying our welcome, so we’re going to cut the interview here. Thanks for chatting and chilling with us Britlyn! See you, Rico, and Susan for an outdoor grounding experience shortly! We’ll bring the gin + ginger ale.
