Susan Foslien of San Francisco luxury shop

15 Sep San Francisco cult shop Susan in How To Spend It

Susan Foslien is the owner of the still-under-the-radar after all these years store Susan, on Sacramento Street in San Francisco.

SCAD style, Rima Suqi, Roberto Faraone Mennella, Amedeo Scognamiglio

13 Apr In conversation with Amedeo Scognamiglio and Roberto Faraone Mennella at SCAD

I was invited to moderate a conversation between jewelry designers Amedeo Scognamiglio and Roberto Faraone Mennella at Savannah College of Art and Design. It took place in the theatre at the museum there, and was honestly one of the more fun of these types of events that I've ever been involved with. You can see Amedeo's cameo line here and the duo's line of fine jewelry here....
