1: Who am I?

Constanze Han.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I am a stylist turned jewelry designer, currently launching a new fine jewelry brand called NUWA. It is a elegant and wearable conceptual collection featuring precious and semi-precious stones, gold, silver, and mixed metals.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

From New York and Hong Kong and spent the last 5 years in Los Angeles. Now that I’m back in NY, I hope to be staying put here for a while with the exception of a few vacations here and there.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

Tom Ford is the definition of a man with taste. To top that off, everything he touches turns to gold. Also, I am a Bethenney Frankel fan. I am really inspired by people who can turn a simple idea into a movement.

5: What book is your bible?

The Art of Seduction is a good way to understand people.

6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

Loves: Miniature schnauzers, Tahiti, simplified glamour, healthy appetites, escargot, seafood, hazelnut ice cream.

Hates: Laziness, melted ice cream, bad drivers.

7: What is your raison d’être?

Complete freedom from societal expectations. Who knows if this is completely possible, but I’d like to come close someday.

8: What is your favorite color?

Various shades of rich caramels and tans.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Veronica from Archie Comics. She might not be a traditional superhero, but she’s a heroine in her own way! One that really understands the good life.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

If I had to pick a fancy all-time favorite place it would probably be Per Se. Also, a friend recently took me to an Italian place called Apizz in the Lower East Side that I’ll definitely be going back to.

11: What turns you on?

An almost perfect package that includes many muscles, dark supple skin, full lips, and great sense of humor.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

Where are you taking me for dinner?

Constanze Han is a stylist and jewelry designer, but an all in all entrepreneur. After spending the last five years styling various editorials and celebrities, she turned to something that gives her a little more of a creative voice and began designing a collection of fine jewelry. Now she is launching NUWA. NUWA is named after the Chinese mythological goddess who is credited with the creation of mankind and repairing the walls of heaven with five colored stones. In addition to her professional ventures, she am an avid diner and dog lover.
