I’m so excited to share this giveaway with you guys today! I had the pleasure of e-meeting Laura Young of “The Young Aesthetic” a few weeks ago and getting to know her line of beautiful repurposed chandelier crystal pendant necklaces. I absolutely love the style and color range of her pieces. They’re the perfect blend of simple and statement.
Check out Laura’s story!
“One of my earliest memories is of climbing on top of my grandparents pool table, not to play with the billiard balls, but to get to the chandelier crystals hanging above. I loved the way the light reflected off every prism, each one different from the next. I still hear the sound of them all clinking together as I tried to slip just one crystal off the chandelier for my secret stash before my grandmother came running in to stop me.
Now, as an interior designer by profession, I am still obsessed with chandeliers & all the modern incarnations they have taken — most importantly COLOR!
The Young Aesthetic began out of a growing desire to challenge myself creatively with something I had never done before. Although I am a very creative, artistic person with a wide range of interests and strengths; jewelry making was something I had never seriously attempted, but was always intrigued by.
Maybe you’ve noticed that after awhile all jewelry starts looking the same because of the limited color pallet of silver, gold, black, and antiqued metals. I knew I needed something different- something full of color. After a lot of research and some trial & error, I found a wide range of monochromatic chains that blended perfectly with my collection of colorful recycled chandelier crystals in both classic & modern shapes.
Luckily for me, current trends are finally catching up to my aesthetic & color popping your wardrobe is the name of the game.”
I love it! Beginnings like that inspire me so much. Seeing new beauty in old things is one of the most exciting aspects of living creatively.
Now for the giveaway! One lucky subscriber will take home 1 of the 2 gorgeous necklaces pictured above! You have your choice of the Gold or the Clear. The chains are about 24 inches long, and the crystal pendant is 2.75 inches.
