WIN ♥ A Gorgeous One of a Kind Brooch from WristieLove

This contest is now closed

Let me introduce you to WristieLove, an online store selling beautiful organic, vintage or repurposed jewellery pieces that have that mix of intrigue and curious design down to a tee. Owner Sana describes her little shop as Your source for Wedding & Everyday Casual Pretty which perfectly sums up her ethos. This lass from California has always been put on edge by over-formality and she’s right you know, I wouldn’t limited these pieces to just your wedding day – in fact I wish I could wear one everyday!

I think anyone can be well dressed and look ‘pretty’ if they OWN their style, casual or not. She told me I specialize in one of a kind accessories and metalwork. This includes etched copper tags, corsages, brooches and bags that feature curious and sometimes quirky design elements. All of my pieces are hand crafted incorporating organic, vintage (eco in its original form) or repurposed materials.

Each piece is even shipped in cute recycled boxes…swoon!

But that’s not all – contest alert! Sana will work with the lucky reader to style a custom clockhand brooch specifically designed for the winner and based on their very own wedding! How awesome is that?! To enter, check out her Etsy store and pick your favourite clockhand brooch. Then comment below saying which is your favourite plus your wedding theme, colour scheme and ideas.

I can do one of a kind custom work based on any piece of mine that they see. It is like adding a hem to your favorite pair of pants for a better fit. And it allows my shoppers to incorporate any color or material they like.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s see those comments. You have until Thursday 15th October to get your entries in and the winner will be announced on Friday 16th.

Escape

So Autumn is most definitely here huh? Unlike over the pond where Autumn means long, warm evenings frolicking through sunbaked leaves – in the UK reality is often a cold, windy and rainy prelude to winter! Thank goodness we can escape back to longer summer evenings with gorgeous images like these…swoon!
