***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATS TO CORRIN ON WINNING THE BRACELET AND TO KELLY FOR WINNING THE NECKLACE!!***
When Adam proposed about a year and a half ago, my mind went into full wedding planning mode. I didn’t exactly have every detail planned out, but I knew that I wanted my bridesmaids in simple black dresses wearing a three strand pearl bracelet. Oh and pink shoes. Cause every wedding needs pink shoes.
Fast forward to two months before the wedding. I’m curled up on the couch, crouched over my computer, fingers cramping from hours upon hours of scouring the internet for these perfect bracelets [on a budget]. Nothing. Until I happened upon sweet Lauren’s shop on Etsy.
And she practically saved my wedding with that. Or at least my dream of gifting my bridesmaids with gorgeous three strand pearl bracelets [on a budget]!
Enter, Bold Rocks. Lauren’s pride and joy. Where she makes the most fabulous jewelry out of cultured freshwater pearls. Not only did she create these pieces for my wedding:
single strand cultured freshwater pearl bracelet for my jr bridesmaid and flower girl, cultured freshwater pearl stud earrings for my bridesmaids and solitary pearl necklaces gifted to my mother and my mother-in-law
BUT she created my dream bracelets and I loved them SO much that I even wore one too!
Sigh, enough wedding reminiscing, let’s meet Lauren, the inspiring designer of Bold Rocks!
Hi everyone, my name is Lauren, I am 28 years old, recently engaged, and about to complete my J.D. and M.S. in Finance. I started making jewelry when I was a child and have been doing it ever since. Every year around the holidaze I would make jewelry for my family and friends. During my first year of graduate school I decided to open my Etsy store.
I have to know, what’s the story behind the store name?
I love big bold jewelry – which is where I got the idea for naming my store Bold Rocks.
What is the inspiration behind Bold Rocks?
I intended the store to be a place where I sold funky chunky stone jewelry. I stumbled into the pearl industry while traveling abroad and decided to add some pearl pieces to my repertoire. My most recent jewelry creations are made from sterling silver or gold fill components and cultured freshwater pearls. My pearl pieces were very popular with the bridal community so I decided to switch my focus to affordable pearl jewelry for weddings. I really enjoy working with brides to create timeless jewelry that they and their bridesmaids can wear for years to come.
Thanks Lauren! Not only does she create gorgeous affordable jewelry for brides and everyday life, but she is offering a 5% discount to bStylish readers through December 25th! Just enter bStylish in the message box when checking out!
