How does that make you feel? You recently launched Lyon Fine Jewelry. What made you decide to do a jewelry line?

Is this another branch in the rivalry with Romi? My jewelry line started way before I was on the show — definitely had nothing to do with Romi. I worked for a jewelry store and then went into other career choices, but basically came back to jewelry.

Even before I was on the show [the jewelry line] did really well. What exactly is Friend Factor?

An organization that helped New York pass the marriage law…basically a straight alliance for gay rights. I mean, of course gays fight for their rights [as well], but to have straight people fighting for your rights is just amazing.

When I was at Sundance I met some pretty amazing people.

If you could pick any celebrity to meet and to wear your bracelet, who would you pick? I have been to Seattle a few times, and I have a couple really good friends that live there. I have been so happy to be back and it really feels like home for good.

I miss my NY friends but thankfully, I see them a lot. I feel more settled now and really happy. It all started when I was working for a jewelry company in NYC. As a whole I felt that the market for women was too feminine for me. So I started designing jewelry on my own, one piece at a time.

Started building my brand and look, and really went for it. I love creating custom pieces the most. If I recall, you said something along the lines of it being the first time you felt ok about coming out, but you can remind me what you said exactly. I think many lesbians can relate to. What are your memories of that time? I think I said that it finally felt like home, that I felt like I finally belonged somewhere.

I was pushing it away my whole life.

You also shared a very moving story in Girl on Girl about coming out to your mom. How did that change your relationship with her?

Our relationship changed so much. Because it took her a minute to really absorb it and know me better. I was hiding so much, and I think she finally felt like a door had opened. There was nothing to hide anymore.
