Super Sponsor Giveaway: Wander + Lust Jewelry

Hey everyone!

I have a special and new super sponsor for you guys today!
Let's welcome Wander + Lust Jewelry

Wander + Lust Jewelry was created based on the owner’s love for travel. She created the line for the modern day free-spirited woman. In their bohemian chic designs, they use semi-precious gemstones from around the world and all 14K gold filled chains. With their signature “layered look”, their line lets you tell your story and allows you to craft a look that is simply unique.

I had the lucky opportunity to review a piece of jewelry from W+L Jewelry and chose this Crystal Quartz Necklace ($48.00+). I received my necklace in a bubble wrap envelope with a cute little bag and tag note.

Some basic info about the necklace from Wander + Lust:
This necklace is offered in 3 different chain lengths: 16, 18, and 20 inches.
The gorgeous Crystal Quartz pendulum is dangling from a 14K gold filled chain.

Upon the arrival of this necklace, I automatically noticed how romantic yet edgy this necklace was. The delicate gold chain makes this necklace look fragile and soft in the best of ways. The minimalistic quartz pendant is sturdy but not heavy as well. I had one of those experiences where I didn't know something was my style until I owned it with Wander + Lust. This necklace suits my personality and style really well but I don't own any quartz or gem-based jewelry. Maybe it's a new side of me coming out to play. :D

I received my quartz necklace on a 18" chain as Ashley-- the creator of Wander + Lust Jewelry-- suggested was her favorite length. I couldn't agree more. I tend to like chains that are kind of on the longer side for a more bohemian feel. For this necklace, I thought 18" was a great length-- not too short or too long. As you can see the little round lobster clasp is a standard clasp to lock your necklace with. It's easy to put on the necklace yourself and secure enough that it won't break or fall off.

 Here's what it looked like on me:

I wore this necklace all day and even overnight since it's arrival. It hasn't given me any problems. It doesn't pinch and it's not itchy. The pendant is light enough that I don't notice it after I put it all. The length of the chain is long enough that I can pick up the pendant and look down at it as well. The only thing I would recommend is that when you store it, don't jumble it up somewhere but leave it hanging off of something. The chain is very delicate and it will tangle easily.

I think it looks great with scooped round neck or v-neck clothes. Obviously, you wouldn't want the pendant half on your skin and half on your shirt because it would be hard to see. I can see it matching everything all year round. It can spice up a casual outfit or be a great layering necklace accessory for more made up outfits as well. I'm looking forward to wearing it this upcoming fall and I will definitely share more pictures of it if the opportunity shows itself. Hope you guys enjoyed my review!

 Wander + Lust Jewelry has this dainty beautiful feel to all of their pieces that makes you feel natural but still fancy at the same time. What a sophisticated and charming collection. See for yourself!

1. How did your shop get started?

Jewelry has always had a special place in my heart. I love the moment when you slip on your favorite piece of jewelry, and it instantly transforms the way you look and feel. I am also a die-hard traveler. I believe travel is all about going into the unknown and not knowing what to expect. Isn’t that what life is all about? One day, I stumbled upon the word: Wanderlust. It is defined as a strong desire to travel. This word really spoke to me. It inspired me to combine my affection for travel + jewelry, hence the name wander + lust.

1. What is your favorite product to design/make?
I love working with gemstone rosary chains! I think they are so gorgeous and dainty and they really go with everything! One of my favorite necklaces I have designed so far is Amethyst Rosary Necklace. The deep lavender shade of the amethyst stone combined with the rustic feel of the gold dipped crystal quartz pendant is to die for!
