Review and Giveaway: aden and claire jewelry

Today we are blessed with another giveaway from aden and claire jewelry, a $25 gift certificate!
You can read about my first introduction to this beautiful jewelry here.

When I revisited Claire's Etsy shop recently, I noticed she has a whole new line-up of personalized jewelry and other delightful new pieces. She was kind enough to send me this little number to review.



It's just perfect! I love classic, effortless pieces like this. It can be worn alone or layered with other simple pieces to create a layered look. Personalized products are always a plus, ideal for gifting.

I asked Claire to help us catch up on the latest happenings. Here's how it went.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.

A: I am a work from home mother of two and began my jewelry business in 2010. I love Jesus, pretty things, traveling, home diy projects, reading, and exercising.I enjoy being creative with my hands and mind and crafting something others can enjoy every day.




Q: Why Etsy? Where else are you selling your beautiful jewelry?
A: I began making jewelry as an adult in 2010 as a creative outlet when my daughter was still a baby. I used Etsy just to see if others might like my work and to earn a little extra money. Little did I know my shop would blossom so much over the next few years!


Q: What inspired your love for jewelry?
A: From as far back as I can remember I have always had a love for jewelry, especially dainty and sparkly styles. My inspiration comes from classic and vintage style jewelry. I like so many different styles of jewelry and was that little girl who changed her hair and outfit constantly just to experiment in fashion. To me jewelry completes the outfit of the day. 




Q: Any new projects in the works?
A: Yes, I am working on many things at once! I am finishing up the new items for the Spring 2015 collection as well as expanding the Runner's Collection and new solid 14k gold necklaces.




Q: What do you think makes your jewelry unique?
A: So many of my customers have told me that they appreciate the simple classic style of Aden and Claire Jewelry. I strive to keep a collection that reflects simple beauty and to create pieces that can be mixed and matched yet classic enough to be worn every day.




Q: Any advice for new Etsy sellers?
A: Yes, don't give up! Let your love of the craft be your guide. Most of what I learned was by trial and error really, but take great photos and keep your descriptions accurate yet simple.


Q: Any new Etsy favorites?
A: BetweenYouAndMeSigns has great spiritual and inspirational signs for the home. I love this oneI love artemer for fine jewelry. Their designs are so dainty and sparkly just my style! This is their Trillion Wedding Dual Ring SetI love these sparkly girly flats from princesspumps.


If you haven't perused Etsy yet, I highly recommend it, starting with Claire's shop!
