Snobish Design Giveaway


It's time for another giveaway! This week I have a beautiful vintage necklace brought to you by Snobish Design.

I was lucky to meet the creator of Snobish Design, Irina, through Twitter. She is super sweet, just like her jewelry! Check out the picture of her and her "son" Benny below. Adorable!

Here's a little background on the shop and the designer behind it:

When did you create your shop and what motivated to?
I created my Etsy shop Oct 3, 2010. I've wanted to do this for a long time but didn't have the confidence in myself. My friends and family realized that there is something special in my work for whenever they wore my pieces people approached them constantly asking where they purchased it. It took many years of convincing from my family and friends until I reached a point in my life where I was content and gained confidence and love for myself. That's when I decided to go for my dream and open my Etsy store.

Where do you get inspiration for the items you make?
My inspiration comes from everywhere. I love the Victorian Bygone Era a lot as you can see in my pieces. I also aspire to make a woman feel beautiful and confident for it's something I've struggled with myself for years and I hope to help woman like myself feel beautiful through my jewelry.

Why should every woman accessorize?
Why not? It makes you beautiful. It can make your outfit seem more expensive than it is if the accessories are right. For instance you can wear a dress that costs $5 and if you accessorize it accurately, that dress will seem like a million bucks making you look like and feel like a million bucks as well.

Anything else you'd like to add that you'd like readers to know?
My designs are one of a kind handmade pieces made with tons of love, high-end materials, and professional technique. My goal with each piece is for the woman who wears it to feel beautiful, young, confident, and elegant. All purchases come beautifully gift wrapped.

I thought I was already following you but apparently I wasn't . . . oops! But I am now a follower;)

She has so many great things in her shop that it was hard to choose a favorite. But I really like the Pink Posh One of a Kind Swarovski Necklace.
