A good statement necklace isn't an easy thing to find when you're working with a budget. They can come off extremely tacky when they aren't made right. I'm sure all of you lovelies have seen this gorgeous style of statement necklaces popping up all over internet shopping sites. The one below in particular is a JCrew bubble necklace that comes with a hefty $150 price tag. Yikes! I don't know about you but I definitely don't have $150 to spend on a trendy necklace, even as much as I love it.
So I was extremely excited when I found this gorgeous bubble necklace below from
Blue Bird Shop on ETSY, with a much more reasonable price tag of $34.
I mean come on, the necklace is stunning and you can tell it is made with high quality pieces, not that cheap shiny plastic stuff. I'm not even sure if I saw them side by side I would be able to pick which was which. Not to mention you could pick out almost 5 different color necklaces from Blue Bird for the price of the JCrew one above.
Diane is the woman behind Blue Bird and she was kind enough to tell me a little about herself and Blue Bird.
"Hey everyone! My name is Diane. I’m a native New Yorker and here inspiration is EVERYWHERE! Truthfully though, my biggest source of inspiration comes from a tiny little package… My daughter Samantha. As much as I love what I do here at Blue Bird, being “Mama” is really the most amazing job in the whole world!"
"While taking courses in ceramics, jewelry design, textile, and studio arts… I found a love for creating just about anything with my hands. Translating my ideas and style into something unexpected and beautiful really gets me going! I create all my pieces from the notion that every woman should be able to afford beautiful things and this gives me a fulfillment that goes beyond words! Hope you love my items!"
I fell in love with practically every single item in Diane's shop and love her motto about creating beautiful items that every woman can afford. She was such a pleasure to work with and is even offering up one of her stunning bauble necklaces for one of you to win.
As for the rest of you lovelies who don't win this giveaway, Diane has also extended an exclusive discount just for you! With the code LOVELY15 you'll receive 15% off and FREE US shipping.
