"I’ve spent my entire adult life building this brand, and it’s a huge part of me. So many of you ask about the name! Soasa (So-Sah) is an acronym for Soul of a Starving Artist, which was the name of my blog when I started selling my jewelry and paintings in high school. It was inspired by the combination of impending student loans for art school, and the typical teenage sentimentality. The name seems a bit over-dramatic now, but I still find sharing my jewelry is very personal, because each piece represents a quiet moment in my life. So there you have it. I may not actually be starving, but I certainly feel that each design carries a little bit of my soul out into the world!"
