Lisa Leonard Designs

I'm so excited to tell you about this GIVEAWAY from Lisa Leonard Designs!!   Her jewelry is so unique and just looks like it was made with love. 



 I'm always inspired by stories of people who take risks and follow their hearts to create sucessful businesses.  I think Lisa's story is best told by her: 

I have been making jewelry since high school but I decided to get serious after my first son, David, was born. I wanted to start a small business that would enable me to quit my job and stay home with my boys. At the time, I had never taken any formal classes or received special training in jewelry making. I just went for it! I am kind of the 'jump in and learn as you go' type. Creating jewelry not only allowed me to work from home, but has connected me with so many amazing women along the way.



My desire is to create simple, lovely pieces that can be worn with jeans or your little black dress. I want each piece to meaningful. Our custom jewelry is hand-stamped with your kids’ names or a special phrase or verse. I love to touch my necklace throughout the day and reflect on my husband and my sweet boys.



Each piece we create is a work of art—hand cut, hammered, polished, drilled and assembled with care. I am inspired by other artists--painters, scrapbookers, clothing designers and poets. I also love to soak up nature-the sky, the sea, the green hills. I let all these ideas and images swirl around in my mind and then I create. When an idea hits me I sketch it out and play until the perfect design comes together.  Lisa Leonard Designs exists because moms, grandmas and friends have shared our designs with each other while waiting in line at the grocery store or sipping coffee with a friend.

Lisa has generously offered to give away one of her beautiful pieces to a reader. 



How cute is the spoon above?!  What a perfect gift for a new baby!   And the chandy necklace below?!!  Can you see how unique they are?  See how the names are stamped into the sterling silver?



And yes, I got something wonderful too out of this giveaway!!!  Lisa was sweet enough to send me the Family Crest necklace  (below) and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!  It's just incredible and is the perfect thing to wear everyday.  Seeing the photos of her jewelry is one thing, but they're just amazing in real life.  I haven't been crazier over a piece of jewelry in a VERY long time. 



All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment answering this question:  If you could have any superpower, what would it be?  (And being able to heal people doesn't count because I think most of us would probably choose that, except my husband, who claims he wants a tail, which even isn't a superpower and is so gross.  He won't tell me his real coveted superpower.)     

I'll pick a name at Random, check back on Tuesday to see who won.  If you win, you'll  get to choose your favorite piece from the website & Lisa will send it to you.  Lisa also has a beautiful blog here with lots of pretty inspiration.

...  And I WOULD FLY!!! 
(Flying dreams are the best!!!)

xoxo,
lauren

Rayia said...

I think I would love the super power of Mary Poppins, snapping my fingers to clean and being able to fly! What a woman!:o)

Anonymous said...

I love her work. Stunning!

My super power would be the ability to time travel and clean up my mistakes (and reverse my hubby's vasectomy)! haha

Heidi said...

My super power would be speed reading...because I love to read, but never seem to have enough time. I love the simple elegance of Lisa's designs.

Missy said...

I would like to always be kind...no matter what.

Brighton said...

I'm looking for the Sparkle necklace for my daughter. It's what I always tell her before she goes on stage to dance : ) Shirley Temple's mom used to tell Shirley the same thing.

Brighton said...

Oops...my super power would be to cook!

Anne-Marie at 10 Rooms said...

I'd like to be able to heal people...
and resist chocolate :)

Kathysue said...

Hmmmmm, let me think, My super power would be..... To be able to go back in time and change a few things but to mostly enjoy my life all over again. Great question and a great give away,Thankyou very much for posting this.Kathysue

Nicky said...

My superhero trait would be xray vision.

modernchemistry said...

Great giveaway!

I'm with you on the flying. I used to have flying dreams all the time when I was younger...being able to fly would be pretty sweet!

Katie said...

I think I would want to fly or be able to be invisible for my superpowers! Love Lisa's jewelry!

John, Sarah and Maddie said...

Lisa's work is beautiful! Thanks for sharing a great giveaway. I would love to communicate with animals - birds, squirrels, dogs, etc. Personally, I think they may have more to tell us than most of the big mouths around us.

Haven and Home said...

Hi Lauren,

The part about the tail made me laugh out loud, especially since I feel like I know y'all! (I would not normally write that but I know you understand). I would love to fly or to be invisible!

Cara said...

What a great giveaway! I love Lisa Leonard's jewelry. If I could have one superpower, it would be to stop time or move really fast. (My backup answer is invisibility.) :)

Annie said...

At the risk of sounding like a crazy fan (which I totally am), I just discovered your blog and have read the whole thing from beginning to end this evening. Love your style, your design aesthetic and your writing!
I am currently collecting fabrics, furniture and rugs that I love and when I finally have a space in which to put them all think you would be the perfect person to help me with layouts and wallcolors, etc... (and I live just a little south of you).
Anyhoo, enough gushing. :) If I could have a super-power, I would love to be able to time-travel. As most people probably would admit, a few 'do-overs' would come in very handy and I would also like to spend more time with my grandparents, all of whom I lost when I was too young to have fully appreciated them.
Best,
Annie

lacey said...

love her designs and your blog!
today I would like the power to whip my house and closets to perfect order in the blink of an eye

Sogni Siciliani said...

I think I would love the super power of being anywhere in the world with just a thought and a twitch of my nose....like Samantha in Bewitched. I have family all over the world and would just love to see them without an airline ticket!!!!!

Katie said...

These pieces are great!

As a superpower, I would definitely fly. No more sitting in traffic!

sharonjo said...

I would like to have the superpower ability to eat anything I want and not gain an ounce!!

Love Lisa Leonard designs! Thanks for the giveaway!

Sara said...

my super power would be getting the kids fed and asleep and the dishes done before 8pm so I would have time to do the dreaded bill paying!

Anna said...

What a fantastic giveaway...amazingly crafted jewelery ..just love it.
Ok..so if I had to have a super power...it would be... to absorb information...at a speedy pace. You know like..reading a book just by placing my hand on it...I think the most powerful tool you can ever own is Knowledge...to know so much..and there still be so much more unknown...makes me wish I could just absorb all the knowledge like a sponge ...and share it and use it in some positive way.

LindsB said...

If I had one super power I would love to become invisible and go anywhere unnoticed...it could be fun :)

Erin said...

I want the superpower of speed.

Christy5150 said...

Very beautiful jewelry.

My superpower would be to time travel, so I could go back in time and spend more QUALITY time with my Gram, who passed away in 2008.

Megs said...

I'd love the ability to be in two places at once, or even three, so cloning.

k said...

The BEST superpower would be to have the power to be able to grant people superpowers....including to yourself! Unlimited superpowers!!!!

Feather Your Nest! said...

Lisa's jewelry is so pretty! I love the chandelier!

My superpower would be flying! I spend all day in my car taking kids to and from school and all their sports! Flying would be a nice change and a much better view!

A said...

The superpower I want is to create happiness in all people everywhere. I have a facebook group called Aatching Happiness and am writing a book, which I think might become a blog called 180 Days To Happiness. Maybe one day I will have that superpower.

A said...

Whoops. Typo. My facebook group is Catching Happiness...

Rebecca said...

My superpower.. hm, not sure if it counts, but a magic wand sure would be nice... Poof - dinner done! And poof - kids in bed asleep! Thanks!

Ashley B said...

I would want to be like Tabitha from Bewitched where I could wiggle my cute little nose and make anything happen like...dinner appear and all toys in there proper spots.

Zaneh said...

To love unconditionally...that is a superpower indeed!


Silver/pearls

Kelly said...

My superpower of choice? To be able to read peoples' minds. I would be humbled, amazed, amused, enlightened, and often, I am sure, completely disgusted by what I learned.
