have a handmade holiday: win a necklace by laura lombardi!

December 17th, 2010 · 125 Comments

This contest is now closed! We’ll contact the winner via email and post their name here soon! Thanks!

Chicago-based jewelry designer Laura Lombardi started her company almost two years ago, and since then, her fabulous designs have been garnering press left and right. She’s been profiled in Bust magazine and NYLON,  and most recently her stacked rectangle necklace (which I happen to own) made it into New York‘s holiday gift guide. Laura uses re-purposed and vintage materials to create each piece of jewelry by hand in her Chicago studio, making every item unique.

Laura has graciously donated her Small Sphere Necklace for our Have A Handmade Holiday giveaway! The pendant is made of small, semi-circular, vintage brass charms and hangs on 18″ vintage brass chain.

So you wanna win this necklace? Here’s how it works!

*Add a comment to the bottom of this post and tell us which piece is your favorite over at Laura’s site.

    The necklace featured as prize in this giveaway attracted my attention the most. I like its simplicity.
    Even though other pieces are very interesting and looking at them brought my thoughts towards some women I know, who would love them…

    Thank you for this great giveaway!
    Happy Holidays!
