$230 Designer Necklace Jewelry Giveaway by Blydesign






Kindu Hammered Brass Necklace








Giveaway Necklace

Kindu Hammered Brass


Classic and Fabulous with almost any ensemble!K: How did your world of design evolve from your previous careers?




I studied classical piano since I was very young and continued the study of this instrument through college. After graduating with a degree in music, I began earning a living playing the piano and teaching others to do the same. Weather creating music or crafting jewelry...I just have a love for all things creative. K: What influences have you had that inspire you to create your jewelry designs?




I discovered my passion for jewelry design after coming across some old, chandelier crystals in my late Grandmother's house. I was struck by the beauty of each crystal and yearned to create a necklace that would keep one of the crystals close to my heart.






K: How do you decide on the stones and precious metals etc that you choose for your jewelry?

When creating my designs, I am really drawn to elements which have opposite qualities. I like to join matte findings like vintage, raw brass with something that sparkles and shines like crystal or pyrite.



Spring Line




Shane Earrings



Nedda Earrings

Agate Coasters






K: Does the future hold more in store and what direction do you see yourself heading?


What I love about design in general, is that it is constantly evolving. You never know which direction its headed. One avenue I am really excited about pursuing is bridal jewelry. I remember when I was a bride, it was very difficult to find jewelry that didn't look like it belonged in a pageant. I hope to offer brides one-of-a-kind pieces that maintain classic, elegance but feel fresh and modern.


Hammered Brass Cuff with Amethyst Antique StonesK:Do you have any special advice for young entrepreneurs?


Think outside of the box!

K: Where can people find your jewelry?
My jewelry is currently for sale at www.blydesign.com, www.maxandchloe.com, Luxe Home Couture (Charlotte, NC), Black and Blue (Charlotte NC) and Olive (Jacksonville, FL).

Amazing giveaway. I love the unique vintage feel to her pieces. I have so many favorites of her pieces but if I had to choose I like the Jazelle necklace,and the Eva earrings. I noticed I tend to move towards the most vintage looking pieces of jewlery. But seriously this has to be the nicest giveaway I have come across.

And her coasters are amazing!


Can't wait for the winner to be announced!

Good luck to everyone :)

Jacqueline said...

I am a follower and now her newest follower. Love all of her jewelry. Her earrings are gorgeous. I loved the interview and especially that chandelier crystals of her grandmother were the thing that inspired her. I love that crystal chandeliers are back in all their glory with clear and colored crystals, and even some stone ones. I think I was insired by a glittering popcorn ceiling at a sleepover at my friend's house when I was in 1st grade. They built and sold home and I came home (in first grade) and asked my mom why we didn't do that. I thought that ceiling was the most beautiful thing I had seen! (Now we can't get them out fast enough!!!)

The enchanted home said...

Absolutely beautiful line, thanks for telling us about it..I will definitely be buying things from her...am a costume jewelry nut. I love the necklace..may whoever is lucky to win it enjoy it in good health and happiness!

Thanks for your visit to my new blog and your kind words...hope you will come back, I know I will be back to yours:)
