Luxe Design Jewelry Giveaway



I love personalized jewelry but often it's hard to find really unique jewelry that is simple yet effective. That's why I have totally fallen in love with the amazing personalized designs of Luxe Design! I also love the fact that it is a company from my hometown of Vancouver! I love supporting local talent and Joanne the designer behind Luxe Design has such a great eye!






I love that each piece is hand-stamped with you in mind! My sister has a really unique way of spelling her name and it's totally impossible to find anything personalized with her name on it! That's why I love Luxe Design because each piece is made for you so each piece is totally one of a kind and made just for you! 









There are two different options that you can choose for your Luxe Design piece, you can either go full on out with personalization and that means that you would build your piece from scratch. You can choose the chain, the chain length, the type of metal, the charms, the extra dangles! Seriously the possibilities are endless and you can make so many different combinations! I love this option because it truly allows for your story and for your personality to really shine through! You can choose what is most important to you and hang it around your neck. 








The second option is to choose from one of Luxe Design many finished personalized necklaces or bracelets and simply personalize the piece with the words or names of your choosing. This is a great idea for people who are super indecisive like myself! Because seriously if I had to personalize a necklace from scratch it would take me forever to decide on what I would really like! 




I love that each Luxe Design necklaces, earrings and bracelet is made of the finest materials! Joanne only uses gold and  silver! The normal turnaround for a Luxe Design piece is usually within 10 days! It takes some time to make things perfect but if all the components are in stock Luxe Design can even complete your order within one day! I also love the fact that if they can't complete your order in full they are very flexible and offer you the opportunity to either cancel or change your order.

Since Joanne is from Vancouver I decided to ask her special questions related to Vancouver and what she loves best! Here is her interview: 

Name: Joanne Hart        

Name of shop:  
www.luxe-design.com

Location:
 Vancouver BC

Favorite item from your shop:
 I love the new personalized wing charm! It fits into so many categories that we sell, it is new, and looks good by itself or in combination with a bunch of personalized charms. Mine currently reads ‘GUIDED’.

Since you are a fellow Vancouverite, what is your favorite thing about Vancouver and what is your favorite thing to do? Vancouver is such a beautiful city, I am incredibly fortunate to be able to ride my bike to work along the seawall and enjoy the ocean and the city at the same time. How does it get any better than that? I have to ride my bike because my second favorite thing to do is enjoy the multitude of fabulous restaurants, not that I have much time for that! 

Tell us a little bit about yourself: 
When and what made you want to open up your shop? I’ve been obsessed with jewellery since I was a kid. I used to take apart watches and make them into brooches and barrettes. The happiest day of my youth was when a new bead store opened up in town. I did not like much of the jewellery that was available in stores then, it had no soul! I always wanted to make my own and have been constantly trying one technique after another, as fast as I could learn it.

Opening this online store was a long evolution. Luxe Design was founded in 1995. We didn’t even have a computer when the business was born! But we had one of the first ecommerce websites in an effort to connect directly with people who liked our jewellery. Hand stamping personalized jewellery has become more common as you can now buy these stamps at supply stores, but Luxe was the first to do it. During my training at school, we went to the Boeing Airplane factory and I hand picked a set of metal stamps that made up the alphabet, and used them in the creation of many of my designs. We built a wholesale jewellery line around meaningful sayings and pieces inspired by art and nature, and sold it across North America, Japan, and the UK. But we also had a following closer to home. Our customers began asking us to add their child’s name to the back, or to use their favorite saying on one of our charms. The individual personalized line was borne from there, and the website is the perfect way to accommodate the personalizing process. People can browse the choices at their convenience, and select each and every element of their design.

Tell us a little bit more about your creation process: 
Where do you draw inspiration for all your amazing designs?  There are a lot, I know, I can’t stop. I get my inspiration from a combination of things: I am always interested in new techniques of making things. The techniques inform the design. I am currently working with making impressions of real shells and starfish. I usually make my own stylized versions but the detail in this process is outstanding. The other side of the equation is what my customers are looking for. I know when they buy Luxe Design jewellery they are putting themselves into the final product. They are the ones who create meaning in the pieces by memorializing a loved one or celebrating a victory and commemorating that moment in a personalized charm bracelet or necklace. I like to joke that if the recipient of one of my pieces cries, I’ve done my job. Another element in the creation is fashion! I love great style and wearing jewellery is about adornment and expression. The meaningfulness of this jewellery line is key, but it might as well come in the form of a sexy bracelet or a trend savvy long layered necklace.

What is your go to piece in your collection? Our best seller is our Open Circle Charm. It is a timeless shape and can be personalized with a simple name or inspirational saying, a whole family of names, or the birth and death dates in memory of a beloved pet. It goes with everything in our collection, and looks good on everyone.

If you could be an animal what would you be and why?  
I’d be some kind of wild bird, such freedom! You could live anywhere you like, pop down to Granville Island for some fries and live entertainment, over to Whistler to soar through the mountains, then take off to follow the sun when it starts to get gloomy. 

If you could have one super power what would it be and why? 
 Is time travel a super power? I’d like to do that. I am not patient and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!


My Review:


Each  Luxe Design  piece comes giftwrapped in a gift box with the Luxe Design logo embossed on the cover of it. I love the fact that the piece comes in a gift box because it makes for easy gift giving and it is also a great place to store your jewelry when not in use. 



I was sent this amazing personalized charm that consisted of the amazing Sterling Silver Poppy Charm and the Sterling Silver Personalized Angel Wing



The Sterling Silver Poppy Charm is priced at $19 and the Sterling Silver Personalized Angel Wing is priced at $32


I decided to get my name engraved on the Angel Wing charm but you can also include another person's name, the name of your pet or even a special date that holds significant meaning to you! The personalization options are endless! 


I really love how this necklace turned out! It's really beautiful and great for layering with other necklaces! I have gotten so many awesome comments on this necklace!



The Giveaway: 

If you love Luxe Design jewelry as much as I do you will be so happy to hear that I will be having an amazing giveaway! You can either win the exact same necklace that I won or $100 gift certificate to Luxe Design so that you can create your own precious and personalized piece!
