Dressed Up Denim + A GIVEAWAY!

13 Aug

Handmade Gold and Pearl Designer Statement Necklace

Today I finally get to share a giveaway I’ve been anxious to have! I’ve teamed up with Tara Lea Smith to give away one of her handmade pieces of jewelry. Tara is known for her ornate statement necklaces, but she also makes other pieces, including some fabulous earrings. I actually met Tara around this time last year when I interviewed her for a Cincy Chic article, and we have kept in touch ever since. On top of her jewelry, she’s also super sweet!

What I love about Tara’s jewelry is that every piece is unique. I appreciate something that I know nobody else is going to be wearing, and that’s what she delivers. She even incorporates vintage and antique beads, which is amazing! Another thing to keep in mind is Tara takes custom orders, so anything you might be dreaming of she can probably bring to life! When I started my blog, this is exactly the kind of jewelry I was envisioning myself wearing. It’s fun, sophisticated, eye-catching, and versatile. Yes, a statement necklace can be versatile! I could easily wear this with a cocktail dress, but wanted to show how easy it is to style for everyday wear. I love dressing up skinny jeans, which can be accomplished by adding a sexy heel and flashy necklace.

Tara was nice enough to custom design this piece for Baubles to Bubbles readers! It actually pains me that I cannot keep this necklace for myself! When I tried it on, it just felt right ;). My mom and I have spent the past few days admiring it while we can. I love the mix of pearls, gold metal and floral pieces. Since it’s not a “giveaway” if the host keeps it for herself, I’m just as excited to give it to one of you! The giveaway is through Rafflecopter, and runs one week. All you have to do is enter HERE!

    First of all, I love your top. Secondly, that necklace is just beautiful. There is so much to look at, I can’t pinpoint my favorite detail! What a great find! I was looking at Tara’a Etsy site and couldn’t help but be enamored by her talent.
