3 Questions : Alicia

3 Questions is an interview-style series featuring some of my favorite bloggers. Every week, I ask one inspirational person 3 completely random questions and ask them to share three photos that represent Who they are, What they do or make and Where they feel the happiest.

This day got away from me. It was the longest day of the year and was so full of sunshine and midsummer beauty. But I’m not here now to talk about me and my day. No, I’m here to talk about Alicia, a beautiful nomad with a deep heart. It’s always so impressive and inspiring to find an artist who, well, does what an artist really does—-translates emotion and experience into a piece of art. Her travels and experiences have inspired the jewelry she makes. When you blend that with her organic design approach, cultural and personal influences, artisanal techniques, her pieces have an impressive journey all their own.

If you could bring one thing from the 50s to the present day, what would it be and why?I would bring aprons back into the kitchen! I have a collection of aprons from the 50s and 60s that I have found at many-a thrift stores. I love to wear them for cooking or with a dress to add more color. They are practical for messy cooks, like myself and they also offer some fashion for meal time.

Is it easier to win or lose with grace?I view losing and winning as the same journey. Both pathways are challenging to do with grace as the ego is connected to both reactions. Winning you can feel the power of being greater than while losing is just the reaction of feeling powerless or less than something else. The journey is to detach ourselves from the “win” or the “lose” and see the connection.

What is the prettiest place you have been?I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to travel to so many amazingly beautiful places. Each place unique in it’s own way. For this question I will narrow it down to three places that really made me feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of their beauty.

1. North Cascades Mountain Pass – Washington State

2. Zomba Plateau – Zomba, Malawi, Africa

3. Arches National Park – Moab, Utah
