Miss Betty Lou Giveaway

Hey all.
Guess what?

It’s time for another giveaway!

This week’s giveaway is brought to you by one of my amazing sponsors.
So before we get to what you can win, here’s a little info about the shop.

Miss Betty Lou is a shop that specializes in jewelry that makes a statement, something that is of course all the rage right now. With a mix of silk rosettes, ribbon, beading and more, each piece can add a truly unique look to any event that you plan on attending.

I asked Stephanie, the brain behind this shop, a few questions and this is what she had to say:

Who or what is your store named for? I named my shop after my grandmother, Betty Lou Taylor. She helped raise me and has always been a big part of my life and a source of inspiration so this was my way of honoring her.

What are your inspirations? Inspiration for me usually comes from the materials I use. I never know what I am going to create when I sit down to make a new piece. I love to use bright colors and a variety of textures. I sort of let the materials speak to me.

Sometimes I have a certain person in mind when I create a new piece (a friend or one of my sisters). I will make it to their taste, incorporating my interpretation of their personal style or colors I know they like.

What are three favorite items from your shop and why? I love the Fabulous Faux Pearl and Rosette Statement Bib Necklace because it is just so much fun to make! I love how the black and white accents contrast with the bright bold colors of the flowers.

I also love items like the Romantic Ivory Rosette Duo with Pearls and Rhinestone Hair Clip because I know that it is most likely for a bride and I’m always so honored to be a part of their special day!

And I really like the Lime Green and Black Flower Rosette Statement Necklace because it is more my personal taste. I have one that I wear all the time and I just love it.

Where do you see yourself and your shop in the next year? In the next year I hope to have my home studio totally completed. Right now it’s not quite where I want it to be (it’s a total mess!!!). But I really look forward to having a work space that is organized and reflects my style. I also look forward to creating a ton of new pieces. I would love to create a line of hats!

Any advice for aspiring Etsy shop owners? If I could offer one piece of advice for aspiring Etsy shop owners it would be to GO FOR IT! Etsy has changed my life. Not only has it given me a much needed outlet for creativity, it has given me a real chance to make a living off of what I love to do. I always knew I wanted to be an artist and to be my own boss and the Etsy community has given me the tools I needed to make that happen.

Today you all have the change to win a gorgeous item

from this gorgeous shop.
You’ll be the envy of everyone who sees you wearing this sweet necklace

    Love all of her stuff! I am in love with the Classy Romantic Pearl Statement Necklace – Faux Pearls accented w/ Silk Rosette Flow. (It says "Perfect for the Bride"–but I'm assuming non-brides and non-students are allowed to wear it!)

    I'm a follower on here and on Twitter, and I just tweeted about your giveaway. :-)

    Now, "favorite" item is tough because there was A LOT of stuff that I loved. But, I'm super drawn to the Green Silk Rosette Trio and Black Veil Headband.

    And I'll definitely love that necklace if it gets to come live with me too. :)
