spiral style & giveaway

today is a very exciting day for lifestyle maven.  not only do i have a splendid giveaway for you, but i'm so very pleased to introduce my very first sponsor

heart bracelet
a big welcome to deborah of spiral style who creates the most lovely jewelry.  her creations are elegant and oh-so-chic!  (see her wonderful rotating ad to the right?!)  she has kindly offered to giveaway a pair of beautifully handcrafted earrings to one lucky lifestyle maven reader!  yay!

these could be yours!!!
read on to learn a bit more about deborah & spiral style and then be sure to enter for a chance to win!

1. when did you first start designing jewelry?
When I moved to Michigan from Pennsylvania in 1991, I took a jewelry making class at our local art center.  I loved it so much I enrolled at the local university and completed studies receiving a BFA with a concentration in metals (quite a change from my previous occupation of nursing).  I went full-circle and taught at the same art center where I took my first class and began to sell my jewelry at their gallery shop.  I no longer teach but they continue to carry my work in the shop.

2. what is your favorite piece to wear?
 I always wear earrings but I think my favorite piece to wear is a set of my bangles.  They are also my biggest sellers.

3. what inspires you when creating new pieces?
 I take inspiration from current fashion for sure.  Sometimes just playing around with the metal will inspire a design.  Mostly I think I look at classic jewelry designs and try to make them modern.

be sure to visit her etsy shop {here} and read her blog {here}.  don't you just LOVE her creations?!
