We're surprised Megan Auman had the time to chat with us. After all, she's not only a jewelry designer and metalsmith, but an educator and entrepreneur (yes, we feel like slackers, too). Auman, 30, began her eponymous jewelry line after graduate school in 2006, and her work, found at meganauman.com, is sold at more than 60 stores. And she's helping to shape the next generation of designers. In 2009, she created Designing an MBA at designinganmba.com, focusing on business thinking for designers. The Jonestown, Pa. resident also teaches at Towson University and MICA. Jewelry you never leave home without?I go through phases but I always wear my rings: My wedding band/engagement ring on my left hand, and five rings on my right-- two that I made and a stack of three that I got from a fellow jewelry designer. Right now I'm on a mega earring kick, so I won't leave the house with a big but classic pair of earrings. Last movie you liked/disliked?My friend and I took her 3-year-old to see"The Muppets,"and I was surprised by how much I liked it. It had the right mix of nostalgia and current pop culture. I love old musicals, and it had some of that charm as well. Read more about Megan here.
