She’s got the fashion thing down, but Whitney Port recently expanded into a new arena: jewelry. The former reality starlet is launching her Bits & Bobs by Whitney Eve line of accessories this fall, but admits it wasn’t the easiest process.

“I really had to explain and translate what was in my head to the people that know how to make it,” she told PEOPLE Monday night at the What to Expect When You’re Expecting premiere in L.A. “I can’t make it on my own. So that’s always a challenge.”

Introducing Bits & Bobs on her website last month, Port wrote that she “had a blast going through the bins and bins of chains, beads, brooches and vintage jewelry in order to achieve what we have made. I cannot wait for many more [collections].”

The costume jewelry line features “a lot of mixed metals and chains,” Port explained. “It’s vintage-y looking. It’s kind of like punk mixed with a little feminine edge. Lots of golds and silver. It’s pretty exciting.”

However, fans of her clothing lines needn’t fret; when asked by PEOPLE what she’s up to these days, the starlet replied, “My clothing line is really my main focus right now.” Catch Port’s cameo in What to Expect When You’re Expecting, out Friday.
