Rachel Marie Designs Giveaway

While we love a good name-brand, we also like to shop locally and jumped at the chance to work with the amazing Midwestern jewelry designer behind Rachel Marie Designs. Her work is amazing and her pieces are absolutely gorgeous!

We also had the opportunity to ask her a few questions to help you all get acquainted with her style and inspiration. Check out our quick chat below and then keep scrolling to see some of her jewelry and have a chance to win some for yourself!

How long have you been designing jewelry?
RM: I have been designing jewelry since I was 12 years old, so just over 13 years. It started as a hobby and grew into a passion and now is a business!

Where do you get inspiration for your designs?
RM: I get inspiration from current fashion, timeless classic styles and from a fusion of other elements. I love seeing what is new and trending, but also want buyers to be able to wear their pieces for years to come.

What is one piece of jewelry you think every girl should have?
RM: One piece of jewelry that every girl should have is a great pair of sparkly earrings. Every day can be "glitzed" up just a bit because everyone needs a little extra glitter.

What are some of the latest jewelry trends you are seeing right now?
RM: The latest jewelry trend that I am seeing are bohemian looks, crystal and casual elements being mixed and turquoise. SO MUCH turquoise. I love turquoise, so that is fun for me.

How can our readers purchase your designs?
RM: They can purchase my designs by sending me a Direct Message on Facebook or on Instagram, as well as following this link to a store that sells my designs online.

Here are a few ways that we styled her jewelry:

Pendant Necklace as seen in this post
Floral Earrings
Halo Oval Earrings
Rachel has also been kind enough to offer one lucky reader a pair of her gorgeous Halo Oval Earrings (as seen below and on Jaime above) so be sure to use the widget below to enter for a chance to win! Good luck, lovelies!
