Vanessa Mooney currently lives in Los Angeles but attributes her love of various cultures to traveling with her mother when she was young. In her interview with LiveFAST she says movies were how she developed her concept of fashion. Mooney fuses different eras, continents and styles into her collections and her brand is described as being the “product of all things creative.”

Vanessa Mooney while she has worked in areas related to fashion and styling she is a self-taught jewelry designer. She believes her success in this and what sets her jewelry apart is that fact. Her creativity and designs are unaffected by the industry. Her self-taught journey has made her learn faster and look at the industry  in a more creative way.

When asked in multiple interviews about her inspiration for her jewelry designs, Mooney says it doesn’t come from just one place.She finds inspiration from traveling, music, painters, revolutions and all walks of life. She’s always looking and watching and her jewelry expresses the sights, feelings and ideas she has. In an interview with SWELL she personally says her brand is “bohemian in it’s true rebellious nature.”

One of the main reasons we love Vanessa Mooney is because we love WHO she designs for. Here’s a quote from her interview with Urban Outfitters - “I feel I design for that girl on the street, who you pass by and look twice. It is for someone who isn't afraid to be themselves, and tries to experience new things in life and their travels. I think the girl that wears my jewelry wants something different, so instead of doing what she sees other people do, she makes it her own in whatever way she does!”
