I’m sort of on a women-entrepreneuers-rule kick—you must read this, by the way!—so it’s only fitting that today’s 7 Questions With highlights a female business owner who combines a creative passion with self-employed power. Katarzyna Rosales’ line, Simply Kasia, is a San Diego-based jewelry collection of delicate, handmade necklaces, bracelets, rings, and more. This ring is one of my favorites!
Today Kasia (for short) talks about no-breakfast breakfasts and that butterflies-in-your-stomach feeling…among others thing:
Name: Katarzyna Rosales
Neighborhood: Little Italy
Job: Jewelry Designer/Business Owner
What did you eat for breakfast today?
Not a thing. Ran out for a client meeting at 8am. Welcome to my recent life.
What’s the best thing about your job?
That I don’t really consider it one. Passion would be a better description.
How do you tackle a creative block?
Trips, trips, and more trip escapes. I’ve been fortunate to have lived and traveled a few different places and noticed they all have one thing in common: clearness of mind.
What are you currently reading?
A Polish novel. Houston, mamy problem by Katarzyna Grochola. Reading unfortunately only takes place on special occasions—daily emails and client text exchanges are nowadays my main form of reading.
What’s your favorite spot in the city and why?
There are a couple of benches in Encinitas on S. Vulcan Avenue that carry a sweet spot for me. It’s on a cliffside, right above the train tracks, overlooking the ocean. An ideal spot for sunset-watching, life-reflecting, and day-recharging spot. I am definitively more of a beach girl by heart and take a lot of inspiration from moments like that.
What was the most awesome thing about today?
Meeting up with my web designer and having butterflies in the stomach about everything falling into place as I’ve envisioned for some time now.
Thanks, Kasia! And happy Friday, all!
