RB: What draws you to making/designing things?
BBD: There is nothing that makes me happier than being able to spend my day designing and working with my hands creating beautiful objects from ordinary materials.
RB: What’s new for your line/business this spring?
Now that I have perfected my process I have been hard at work in the studio designing an entire line of new jewelry that utilizes my industrial design background and 3D modelling expertise.
RB: What’s in your designer/maker/creative plans for 2018?
BBD: My 2018 is essentially me just focusing on designing new pieces and experimenting with some new processes that I have already been playing around with over the last couple months. I’m never going to stop pushing myself and my work to new levels and 2018 will be another year of experimenting and testing to make unique pieces unlike anything seen before.
RB: Tell us about a few of your designer/maker/creative crushes:
BBD: Honestly I tend to crush on the people closest to me because there are so many rad people doing amazing things that are right beside me in the markets and shows that I attend. I am lucky to be surrounded by friends who do awesome things!
