Wish you could get to know A Wish Come True better?

We are granting your wish! This week get to know Laura, a pattern maker who sells beautiful jewelry she makes herself!

What’s your job title? Describe what you do.

I’m a pattern maker. I work on patterns for the catalog and customs, making flats, spec packs and costume for styles.


What’s the most fun part of your job/day?

I love a challenge. Anything that gets me thinking and problem solving is fun to me.


Did you dance as a kid? 

Unfortunately, I didn’t dance as a kid but I was in marching band for 4 years so I know all about the hard work it takes to be in sync with the music and practicing for hours on end!


Where and for what did you go to school for? 

I attended the Art Institute for fashion design.


Did you have a different job before ‘Wish’?

Before working at ‘Wish’ I worked at a high-end men’s clothing store in center city.


What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a teacher until about 5th grade when I realized how many other options there were and I changed my mind to fashion design.


What are a few of your favorite things? 

My cat, Flea, definitely has the #1 spot but I also love reading, making jewelry and watching Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings of the umpteenth time.


What’s your spirit animal? 

I would have to say my spirit animal is a unicorn. In my head, I live in a fantasy world so it would have to be a fantasy creature!


Who are your favorite artists?

My favorite artists are Of Mice and Men, The Pretty Reckless, Halestorm, Memphis May Fire, and Neckdeep. I love Hard Rock/Metal and anything I can jump in a mosh pit to.
