brideblu :: vintage and handmade jewelry {giveaway}


I'll admit, I'm not one to wear a ton of jewelry. You'll find me in a wedding ring every day and if I'm feeling particularly motivated, you might see me sporting earrings or a necklace once in a while. But there are moments when I come across an etsy shop and I suddenly find myself drooling over every item for sale. That's pretty much how I feel about BrideBlu. When Cat, owner and jewelry designer, contacted me about what piece I wanted, I had an extremely difficult time choosing just one. In the end, I gave her my favorites and told her it was her job to choose. A few days later I received the love dove necklace in antiqued silver and was absolutely delighted with what I saw.
The necklace is beautiful, delicate and hand crafted to perfection. As someone who doesn't claim to wear a lot of jewelry, I can wholeheartedly say this necklace will be worn quite often. It's stunning!

Cat's items are timeless, elegant and versatile. You can wear any of her pieces for a night out on the town or if you're anything like me, at home in your favorite jeans! She has the most unique designs, I can't help but marvel at the ideas she comes up with. Make sure to check out her well-known chalk board message necklace (like I said, genius!). Or if you're a shutterbug like me, you'll most certainly love the camera necklace

Brideblu offers a variety of items, from necklaces to bracelets to earrings. And if you have something in mind, custom orders are always welcome.
