Friday Feature & GIVEAWAY: Fushia Gold

Is it Friday again already?  I can't believe that tomorrow will be DECEMBER...


Anyway, time for another Friday Feature!  This week I'm introducing Freya from Fushia Gold, where you'll find unique geometric leather jewelry, and some butterflies & clouds too - you have to go check out the shop to see.  Freya uses bright & colorful shades and metallics, such a brilliant combination for modern pieces that stand out perfectly.  Just look at these Butterfly Wing Earrings (and remember, click on images for more info and product decriptions).






When asked how she got started in working with leather in her jewelry, this is what Freya said:
"I got started with leather when I was making bead and chain bracelets.  I had just gone through a brooch making phase and had some leather scraps which I incorporated into a bracelet. After a few months I decided I enjoyed working with leather more than beads, it gave me much better control over the shape, colour and design of my jewelry."



What inspires here to create?  Here is what she said:
"I have always had a compulsion to be making something, I tend to just get an idea and just have to try it out, that is how I began the clouds,I just thought of how nicely it would move,and I made the prototype for myself when I was moving across the country a few months ago in the back of my mums car...not advised when one of your tools is a needle."

Freya's beautiful giveaway prize piece is a Butterfly Wing Necklace.  I asked her what inspired her line of butterfly and cloud jewelry, and here's Freya's reply:
"I have always been interested in animals and nature, I grew up in the English and Irish countryside with woods and fields everywhere, I have a lot of animal memories! I like butterflies in particular simply from a design point of view, they are iconic without being too abstact,and they are pleasant shapes to create."

THE GIVEAWAY PRIZE!!!
As mentioned above, Freya is giving away a gorgeous Butterfly Wing Necklace in Black and Gold to one lucky 2justByou Blog reader!  Giveaway ends at midnight, pacific standard time on 12/15/12 and is open worldwide!
