>Geode, Gold & a Giveaway!


Todays post is very special…because, I`m having a GIVEAWAY!! Wahoo! The first giveaway of the new year! I hope you`re all excited!

I came across an Etsy shop called Magic Loot Designs by Simona Van Vliet a few weeks ago and was in love with the peices I saw. In particular, the gemstone necklaces really stood out to me. Simona creates amazing pieces using sterling silver, goldfill, 24k gold, gemstones, fossils, and vermeil, and is inspired by the California nature around her. I thought If I like these, I`m sure you all would too!

A little Q&A with Simoa: 

Q: Why did you start designing?

A: I first began designing and making jewelry as a way to relax. I worked as a special education teacher, which was a highly demanding job. Making jewelry at the end of the night was my way to unwind. I find the process of creating to be relaxing and meditative.

Q: Where do you get your inspiration from?
A: I get my inspirations from nature. I love the look and feel of natural elements. My line consists of mostly natural gemstones, gold layered fossils, and leaves. I think it is important to look around you and appreciate the small wonders that nature gives us.

Q: Which celebrities would you want to wear your line?
A: Sarah Jessica Parker- because she is just so glamorous in everything that she wears!
Jennifer Aniston – she seems more earthy to me, and can also appreciate the natural elements in my line of jewelry. I believe my jewelry is both glamorous, yet also subtle enough to be worn everyday.

Q: Any advice for beginning jewelery designers?
A: Design from your heart. Original artwork comes from people who are not afraid to take a risk and try something new, so believe in yourself.
