This giveaway is now closed! The winners are Jen (jlr2@…) and Lisa (public.mlml@…)!

About a year ago, I committed to buying only fair-trade jewelry rather than the cheap, assembly line, disposable stuff you find in big box stores (or even the expensive, assembly line stuff you find in department stores, although I tend to go with the cheap stuff when given a choice!). For me, that means buying jewelry that’s handmade by an artisan in the United States (like the stuff from Lisa Leonard Designs) or that supports entrepreneurs around the world (like the paper bead jewelry from 31 Bits).

Yes, that means that my jewelry is more expensive and I can’t buy as much of it (not that that’s necessarily a bad thing), but it also means that the pieces last and I know I’ve supported someone’s dreams with my purchase.

Lisa Leonard began designing and creating jewelry several years ago after the births of her sons out of her desire to be able to work from home. Today, her signature designs are some of my personal favorites, and I love the simple elegance which makes them perfect with jeans and a t-shirt or your little black dress.

Earlier this year, Lisa sent me a gold wildflower necklace from her brand new gold collection. It’s adorable and sweet, like most of Lisa’s stuff, but I didn’t have any gold earrings to go with it. Luckily, just as I started looking through the collection for a pair of gold earrings, she released these gorgeous gold full circle earrings. They were exactly what I’d been hoping for, and I ordered them right away. This weekend I wore both pieces on a long overdue date with my hubby, the perfect way to christen what may become my favorite pieces over the next few months!

In addition to her inspiring jewelry, Lisa also shares the most amazing inspiration for fashion, family and life on her blog, Instagram and Facebook.
