i-love-these-necklaces giveaway

The first time I wore Lisa Landels jewelry was at my sister, Jenny's wedding.
Jenny's bridesmaids dresses were white taffeta wrap around shirts with taffeta skirts in different hues of purple...subtle lavender, pale plum and icy blue.
Very shi shi. And lovely. And my sister, Erica's, friend Lisa made customized beaded necklaces and earrings to match whatever shade of dress we were wearing.
Crystalline loveliness which graced our throats and ears and made us feel a little
bit like princesses. And that feels kind of nice.
And now Lisa has opened shop on Etsy. So Belle design.
She is featuring her custom wedding jewelry
which still has that fairy tale quality to it. Elegant. Delicate. Beautiful.
And then she has her every day line for those of us who are not currently planning a wedding or being a bridesmaid at the moment but who still enjoy feeling a bit princess like.
These are my favorite. I could wear all three at once.

Do you not love them?
She also makes this.

And these.

I had to ask her a few questions about how she got started because I am nosy like that. When I asked her how she got started she said,
"Several years my husband bought me a sweet pearl necklace from this local and trendy, chichi boutique. I immediately fell in love with it and wore it with everything—jeans, dresses, sweats. It was the "go to" necklace, but when darling hubby told me how much he'd spent on the pearly piece, I about choked on my doughnut. I thought, "What? I can make that." Thus began my love affair with beads and creating jewelry."
That made me love her even more....she's thrify...a woman after my own heart.
She loves all different colors, she gets her inspiration for her creations everywhere and has even been known to ask friends to take a peek at their jewelry so that she see how it is constructed.
Lisa has kindly agreed to offer one of her pieces as a giveaway here.
So go over to So Belle design and take a gander at Lisa's lovely work and come back here to the blog and leave your favorite in the comments.
If you place an order, Lisa is offering a 20% discount during this giveaway, just mention that you are a tired supergirl before purchasing.
Winner gets to choose their favorite of the love, peace and joy trio.

Giveaway ends Wednesday, September 9 @9:00 pm.

Lisa is very talented. I like the peace necklace. I like that I could where it everyday with anything. I also like it because with 5 littles running around peace is a much needed thing around here :)

"The Heather" is stunning (as is the bride wearing it).

pendy said...

mmmm...all of her pieces are wonderful...think that (other than the 'peace' necklace), i'd have to choose the olive and blue earrings as that's my fav color combination these days.

Marty said...

I love the Rebecca necklace and earrings and not just because it's my name :)

It's all lovely but my favorite is the Blaue Blume earrings. Even the description is enchanging: "the essence of romance in an earring".

Love all Lisa's stuff. Her earrings are especially great...I'll take the tiptoe through the tulips! And if I win, delivery will be a breeze!:)

I love the earrings of olive-colored drops paired with blue flower caps bring feel of Greece to your doorstep. I so want to go to Greece, maybe these earrings will fill the bill until I get there.
