Just when we thought our summer wishlist couldn't get any longer, Karla Deras of the blog Karla's Closet wowed us with her jewelry collaboration with Roman Luxe! The Power to the Python collection features gold statement pieces in geometric shapes adorned with faux python for a tasteful mix of modern jewelry and vintage influence. Already a fan? Check out our interview with the style star:

We all know you for having impeccable taste in vintage pieces. What era did you borrow inspiration from for the Power to the Python collection?
The Power to the Python collection is mostly inspired by the era of modernist jewelry, which is anywhere from the 1930s to the 1960s.

Did you ever think you would become a jewelry designer?
No! I graduated with a degree in Apparel Manufacturing because I thought I wanted to have my own clothing line, but then I collaborated with Coach to design a handbag and that made me realize how much I loved designing accessories.

What type of girl did you design this collection for?
A girl who likes to take risks and have fun with fashion.

What’s better: Over-accessorizing or under-accessorizing?
Too many accessories can look tacky, but a couple statement pieces can really pull the look together.

What is the first thing that crossed your head when Roman Luxe approached you for the collaboration?
I was very excited because they're such a well-established company and I knew their knowledge and experience in business combined with my aesthetic would create the perfect jewelry collection.

What can we expect for future collections?
For the upcoming collections we're playing with rocks, gems and different metals.
