February giveaway. day one-hundred-seventy-six.

Happy February! At the beginning of the year I talked about how I was going to highlight a business/idea each month. This month I am spending my time showing you my favorite jewelry and supporting a local friend and artist. This month is Hightower Chains month. Hightower makes some awesome stuff with chainmaille and forged items. I will have multiple giveaways this month so please keep your eyes out and make sure you tell your friends!

 You have probably seen this bracelet on me COUNTLESS times. Because well, I wear it frequently.......SO TODAY. I will be giving one away!!!!!!! This specific bracelet is called "Rian". I think it is so freaking awesome and it goes with everything. When you receive your winning bracelet it will be custom made to your size and specifications! Don't like how thick mine is? Hightower will make it thinner! He will even make it one row thicker if you want! He can even do it in a different color! In fact I have one in white/brass and I ADORE IT! So get dreamy and think-up some awesomeness. Here are some of my favorite times I wore this bracelet:

It can really add to an outfit, I love to pair it with really funky stuff and get my rocker chick on and then also really light and lady like stuff to just throw everyone off balance. Its so comfy and easy to slip on the stretchy-ness makes everything AWESOME!!!!! So make sure you enter so you can have some awesomeness too!
