a sparkly giveaway

I have something so fun + exciting planned for today!  It has absolutely nothing to do with food.

Ready?

My super talented + extremely sweet friend Noelle decided to share some of her work with you today.  She is a jewelry designer in Charlotte, NC and has just recently started her own business, Noelle Munoz Jewelry.  Now when I say designer, I truly mean it.  She literally hand makes + designs every piece in her home studio.  I’ve been completely obsessed ever since I saw her first piece when I was living in Charlotte.

This is Noelle.  Gorgeous!

One of my favorite pieces has always been her Boxes & Bezels necklace.  I love that it’s 2 separate chains you can wear together.  I love the contrast of the black + gold and the sparkly little bezel.

Noelle offered to send me this necklace [that she knows I love] and has offered to send you one too!  I snagged a few photos after it arrived and then immediately put it on.  Noelle will customize the length of the chain for you and the “boxes” necklace has 2 different length options to choose from. 

necklace-1

It’s a little hard to tell from my photos but the black piece has all different angles on the surface.  I’m so excited to have a new piece of real jewelry.

This lovely necklace is valued at $85!  And it can be yours!  And then we can be necklace twins!  Okay…I’ll stop.

To Enter:  All you have to do is check out Noelle’s shop and leave a comment below with your favorite piece from her line.

Discount!  Even if you don’t win, Noelle is offering a discount to Edible Perspective readers until May 31st!!

  • enter: EDIBLELOVE to receive $10 off your purchase!

The winner will be randomly selected Sunday, May 20th at 12pm EST and will be announced on Monday’s post.

Besides the Boxes & Bezels necklace, my three favorite pieces are as follows:

A huge thanks to Noelle for hosting this giveaway.  Wishing you all the best with your business.  You are incredibly talented my friend!!

I LOVE the Boxes and Bezels - so pretty and creative!

Her jewelry is beautiful! I've always been an earring gal so my favorites are the La Vida earrings...so dangly and fun :)
May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHeather
This bracelet is beautiful in its simplicity, and I love the fact that it's one of the first things she's designed. It'd connect to my own life as I'm soon about to finish high school in Sweden and decide what I want to do next. Noelle certainly chose the right thing for her!

May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNicolette
How gorgeous! I think my favorite piece of her's has to be The Stargazer. I love stars. ^^
Gorgeous jewelry! I have to say that my favorite is "Shot Through" - I used to be an archer, so I love jewelry with arrows. But everything in the store is gorgeous!
May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKim
Sweet Hearts is my favorite, followed by Stargazer!

Wow, everything is so gorgeous! It's hard to say what my favorite piece is - I think it's a tie between the leaf and Bali Hai necklace!
These are beautiful! It is hard to pick a favorite! I would have to say Boxes & Bezels. Good luck to Noelle!
May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa S
OMG. She is SO talented. I absolutely love all of it. I love the tiny star necklace and the shot through necklace--very hunger gamesy :) Literally can't choose between the 2. Best of luck to her as she starts this business!

I could only see some of the pictures on her website, but of the ones that I did see, I like the same necklace that you did and I liked the Braid bracelet.
May 17, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterpam
I am LOVING Noelle's pieces! My friend who lives in NC just purchased one of her rings, i believe it was the Rivers, so pretty and unique! I'd have to go with the Rivers i am a big ring fan.
May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGreer Thomas
Stunning. My fave piece: Aviator.

Wow, I'm so impressed that Noelle designs and makes the jewelry herself! And she really is stunning, too. I think my favorite piece is "The Braid," but it's hard to choose - there are so many beautiful pieces! Thanks for the fun giveaway :)
I really like the Mini necklace! So classic and simple.
May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

I love the tiny star necklace!
May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDeanna
I love it all, but if I must choose, my top picks would be Bones, Leaf, and Cascadia. I love how all of her designs are simple but possess that special little touch that makes each piece unique. Lovely!
May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSara
