OTRC: Emily Maynard chats about her jewelry line for Towne & Reese

Former 'Bachelorette' star Emily Maynard appears in a May 2013 interview with OTRC.com.

She stole America's heart on "The Bachelorette." Now, Emily Maynard is embarking on her next adventure -- a new jewelry line called Emily Maynard for Towne & Reese.

"The first time I like held it in my hands and saw the box with my name on it, I think I could cry," Maynard said. "I was so excited!"

From necklaces to bracelets to earrings, Emily's love for all the bling goes way back.

"I've always been a girly girl and loved trying on my mom's rings during church and running around in her high heels and so this is perfect for me, a perfect fit."

Surprisingly, the hardest part of designing a jewelry line was coming up with the logo.

"That was one of the hardest parts," she said. "That's the thing I went back and forth with the most. It's so important cause it's the one thing that's gonna be with the line until the end."

The line has kept her really busy, but not too busy for her love life.

"I'm still a young, you know, 27-year-old single girl so I haven't totally taken it off the plate. But I've just shifted my focus on other things. My mom always said it will happen when you least expect it, so I'm not expecting it."

Emily admits, there's still a lot to learn about love, so her words for the new Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock, are short and sweet.

"I don't know if I'm the best person to take any kind of relationship advice from -- mine have not turned out that great -- but I hope she has so much fun and I hope she's really happy."
