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?

Yes, I love her, and her style!!!

I’d have to see it before I decided, but I am always cautious about people who jump from one line of work to another. Designing clothes and jewelry isn’t just a side job kind of thing – most people are trained to do it. Just because someone is famous from a reality show doesn’t mean their creation is worth big money.

Ridiculous. What makes her any more talented at jewelry design than the next person? She hasn’t been to art school or studied design, and I’m willing to bet my boots she doesn’t have an ounce of real artistic or creative talent. This Shelley Gibbs she working with who is going to do all the sketches is the one who will probably deserve the credit for the jewelry created, not Nicole Richie who is just going to smack her name on something so she can make money. I wouldn’t buy anything (supposedly) designed by her.

I would wear jewelry designed by Nicole Richie. I love her style. I am also looking forward to her infant and children’s wear lines. She is such an interesting person that I would imagine that would be brought to her designs. And now she has baby Harlow for inspiration too!!!

It would depend on the jewelry. If it was stuff I liked, sure why not? I have alot of respect for someone that turns her life around. She’s done alot of not so good stuff but she’s turning it around and doing alot of good stuff.
