FUN FACT A failed post as a lingerie designer led Thorne back to school. She got certified as a bench jeweler by Jewelers of America through the jewelry program at the Texas Institute for Jewelry Technology. “Jewelry design combines all of what I loved from fashion—color, texture, pattern—with my newfound passion for metalsmithing,” says Thorne.
