We had the good fortune of connecting with Dawn Pilpel and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dawn, why did you pursue a creative career?
Honestly, I don’t feel I pursued a career in art, but rather my love of fun, art and fashion developed into a career.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
All iWEAR …do you? jewelry is created by hand from common hardware components ie. washers, nuts etc. Each creation is transformed into a treasured piece of jewelry.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
What I love most about South Florida is its diversity – everyone can find something great to do.
I’m a vegetarian and a health nut so exploring South Florida with me consists of a lot of walking and a of course a daily visit to the beach!
Here are just “some” of my other faves we can add to the itinerary…
Shopping – Aventura Mall
Naming just a few restaurants with great vegetarian options (and more) – Sake Thai and Sushi, My Big Fat Greek, Piola, North Italia, Pita Plus…I could go on 🙂
A small neighborhood Mexican cafe with fabulously oversized cocktails (ie Pîna Coladas – delish!) – Takitos
And finally for the best people watching, fashion, great eats, art and shopping – The Guitar Hotel at Seminole Hard Rock, Las Olas, South Beach and Lincoln Road.
There’s so much more South Florida has to offer, I can’t even begin to name it all!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would have no story without my parents, Doreen and Oscar.
