Bellwether Shop Giveaway!

December 1, 2011

I am beyond excited to introduce the first of my December Giveaways, from the fabulous Bellwether Shop! Claire Lueders, the creative talent behind this great shop, makes the most fantastic pieces. Her use of color and classic style are sure to win you over. She's letting me give away a gorgeous necklace (that I am SO jealous of who wins) and a bracelet that will be a perfect addition to any "arm party" to one lucky reader. Get excited, y'all! 

I'm sporting a necklace from the shop that I LOVE. This little tribal number is the finishing touch to my color filled ensemble. Dying. 

(Anne Klein blouse, Nanette Lepore vest, Old Navy trousers, Michael Antonio shoes, Necklace c/o Bellwether, Karen Walker sunnies, F21 bag, F21 bangles)

I had a few questions for Claire, so I did a little interview to find out more about her adorable shop:

DR: How long have you had your shop, the Bellwether?
CL: My etsy shop is quite new, just about a month old. However, I've been making & selling jewelry elsewhere for about five years. 

DR: What do you look for in a piece for your shop (in creating or buying the piece)? 
CL: When I'm creating pieces for my shop I always aim to make unique & affordable jewelry that feels classic but has a bit of edge and a modern touch. 

DR: What inspires you to do what you do?
CL: I'm greatly inspired by color & texture and making jewelry is a perfect outlet for such infatuations. I also admire being part of the long tradition within our human existence of adorning ourselves with jewelry & how it is a common thread between different races, cultures, & eras. Having earrings to go with all of my outfits is also a perk. 

DR: I love the trendy yet affordable vibe you have going on, was there a particular reason you decided to go with that vibe?
CL: Thank you! As a recent graduate on a budget, it was important to me that I was creating items that I myself could afford to buy without having to save for months or more likely, send my credit card balance into a tailspin. 

DR: Which piece is your favorite from your collection and why?
CL: This is a tough question but I will go with my Cocktail Hour Seed Bead Statement Earrings because of their versatility. The color variation glows in daylight alongside a casual outfit yet sparkles in the dark with an evening look.
