Lauren Elise Designs: Artsy Jewelry To Compliment Every Outfit! Giveaway CLOSED




Winner - #119 - Annmarie

My husband has great taste in jewelry but he has expensive taste.  That is great but I am always afraid that I am going to lose those expensive diamond earrings so I have asked that he find some great jewelry at a slightly cheaper price so that I am not so deathly afraid of losing it.


For Valentines' this year, I have my eye on a few pieces from my favorite designer and friend - Lauren.  She just opened her Etsy store called Lauren Elise Designs and I had the privilege of being the first to review her pieces.  She has been making jewelry for quite some time and has had huge successes at jewelry parties and other venues.  After much preparation, she decided to branch forward and come online. 

I am thrilled because Lauren's pieces are stunning and beautiful.  They easily complement any woman's wardrobe and each piece has a unique, artsy feel.  Lauren Elise Designs are definitely one of kind and something you won't find anywhere else.


I was sent the pendant necklace for the Sarai Collection to review and I love it.  At first, I wondered because it is a little more my sister's style than mine but I found a few cute tops to match up with the piece and now I'm in love.  I absolutely love the large pendant as it stands out as a one of a kind piece when you wear it.


 It has a simple design with the wood beads on the side which is a good thing because I think you easily could get lost if this piece was ornate.  I received so many compliments as I wore this piece out and about the last few days.  This piece is definitely a new favorite among my jewelry pieces.

I have already picked out this adorable Red Charm bracelet pictured below as my next new piece.  It would make a great Valentines' Gift!  I love how it stands out in a unique way. 

Lauren Elise Designs is definitely worth checking out and gathering up a few of her pieces before they are gone.  Some may be limited because they are made with vintage beads.  Her pieces are definitely a mix of contemporary and old world. 




Win it!!!

Lauren has generously decided to give one of my readers a $25 gift certificate so that they can purchase their own piece from her Etsy store.
