As if being a brand new mom wasn’t enough, Nicole Richie is adding jewelry designer to her resume! The star tells PEOPLE, “It’s all costume jewelry. I like to play with jewelry and mix and match.” Produced with the company Mouawad (who also does Heidi Klum‘s fine jewelry collection), Richie is working with “this really talented woman named Shelley Gibbs. She’s an artist and she sketches everything.” And Richie makes sure to keep baby Harlow at the forefront of her priorities while working on the line. She explains to PEOPLE that “everyone’s been really mellow and able to work around my schedule. If I need to go feed the baby, I do it.” And as busy as she is, Richie’s not stopping at jewelry. We can look forward to her infant and children’s wear lines coming out later this year as well — we even hear whispers of a fragrance from Richie in the not-too-distant future. What does beau Joel Madden think of all of her new projects? He proudly tells PEOPLE, “She’s being modest” about all of her recent achievements. Tell us: Would you buy Nicole Richie’s jewelry line?

Don’t get me wrong, I wish her all the happiness with Joel and her new baby, but what exactly has she done professionally to qualify for this? To have fragrance/jewelry/clothing deals land right in your lap must be nice. No design school, business school, nada. Sorry I guess I’m just a bitter and broke college student :-) Too broke to definately buy any jewelry she’ll design!

Um…. I guess I’d have to see it first before I decide to wear it but I think she’s got a great fashion taste so I would put faith in her creating a great line of jewelry.

I would buy her jewlery if I thought it was pretty. There are only a couple of celebrities I wouldn’t buy anything from…Heidi Montag, Paris Hilton, Ms. Spears and The Olsens. Anybody else is up for consideration. I love L.A.M.B and I also really like Lauren Conrad’s line. Just bought a dress for an upcoming trip.

I like Nicole Richie and out of her and Paris she has the better fashion sense, so I would imagine that her jewelry would be something I would wear. I am just glad to see that motherhood has brought about a sense of responsibility and maturity, and finally she is doing something with her life besides “The Simple Life”.

If I were a girl,? I would buy Nicole Richie’s line, but since I’m a boy, no.

Maybe… if I liked it. But do we need another designer fragrance?
