Hey lovelies! Another giveaway for you... :) (That's THREE this week! So don't miss out!!)
I recently came across this stellar shop on etsy, and I gasped when I set eyes on the rings! They are beyond ah-some. [If you live in the L.A. or San Fran area, please do check out Wasteland because her items are also being sold there!]
Q&A w/ Charlene [Stone Child's owner]
1)Tell us a little about StoneChildd.
Designed and created solely by Charlene Wilson, Stone Child Jewelry is the product of a girl's dream to make bold and beautiful accessories that stand out from trends you see everyday.
2)How did you come up with that name for your shop?
The fact that stones are earth's hidden treasures that have been formed over millions of years is synonymous to my aesthetic. I try to make my jewelry look like ancient hidden tresures that have a long history and story of their own(I also use a lot of stones in my pieces and they will soon be posted!!). So when thinking of a name it made sense to me to include the words stone and child because they are my number one inspiration.
)What inspires you to create your beautiful & unique jewelry?
I draw my designs from many different places but most commonly from armor, greek mythology, my friends, old rusty hardware, geometric shapes and music. With all that going on I still make sure to keep a bit of me in every piece. Basically, if I wouldn't wear it I won't make it.
4)What type of girl or guy do you envision wearing your jewelry?
The girl or guy (some pieces are androgynous) that wears Stone Child is confident in their own personal style, not afraid to make a statement, romantic at heart, has an artistic/creative side and many diverse interests.
5)What is your fave item in your shop?
My personal favorite is the psyche ring in bronze. It's just so cool.
6)Any tips on accessorizing with your pieces??
Most of my pieces can be worn together. During the day I wear 2-3 pieces of jewelry max. In the evening, the more accessories the better. One basic rule I have is never mix silver and gold.
7)What is your own personal style like?
I love to mix modern and edgy clothing with vintage. Solid colors are easier to mix and match so I have few prints in my wardrobe. Platform booties keep me at eye level and can be worn with pretty much anything. Another favorite are high waisted pants in a wide leg or super skinny. When the clothing fund is running low I'll grab a pair of scissors and revamp an old tshirt. They actually turn out pretty rad. I may even start another store on etsy just for recycled tshirts :) we'll see.
