Life isn't always puffy clouds and rainbows – unless you're Andrea Fohrman. Creating celestial-influenced collections in precious gems and FFR favorites like malachite and rutliated lapis, Andrea makes sophisticated jewelry for women who also embrace a little bit of their inner hippie-chic. Multi-colored pavé and weather-centric shapes coexist among her new standout 'Phases of the Moon' pieces. Initially, we assumed our bond over copper mug cocktails and broody rock music was mere coincidence. Now, we're pretty sure it was already written in the stars.

What’s your preferred mode of transportation day-to-day?
Preferred is different then actual mode – we live in LA so, obviously, it has to be a car, but I prefer walking any day of the week. My car is a 'mom' car and you can find a lot of things in it. Smoothies from last month (hidden by my son in secret compartments), a lot of hair rubber bands from my daughter, tons of white dog hair from my puppy and, of course, leftover coffee from me.
Whats's the most sentimental piece of jewelry you own? Tell us the back story.
The gold and diamond ring is the most sentimental piece of jewelry I own.
It is my engagement ring, I redesigned 10 years after we were married. It
has a lot of meaning for obvious reasons, but when I look at it - it
reminds me of my husband and the support he has given me all of these
years to continue doing what I love to do and to remain creative.
