It's Giveaway Friday!

Rachel Olesker Jewelry



I'm so excited to introduce you all to a beautiful line of jewelry made by one of Chicago's very own, Rachel Olesker.  Rachel's pieces are all one of a kind - literally every single piece is different than the next in some way.

A little bit about Rachel for you......


Rachel Olesker is a self taught jewelry designer whose innovative designs are characterized by a bold and versatile aesthetic. Every piece in her collection is hand-made and no two pieces are exactly alike.

Rachel's jewelry is an expression of her own eclectic style in which she prefers to accent simple apparel with statement-making accessories. Her use of juxtaposed textures, materials and genres gives her pieces a naturalistic quality as well as a flexibility rarely found in jewelry at any price point. Many pieces can be worn as effortlessly with a cocktail dress as with jeans and a t-shirt.
"I create jewelry that I would want to wear. There are many times when I fall in love with a piece and don't want to let it go. But it makes me happy to know that someone else is going to enjoy it."


Without further ado, Rachel and I have partnered and decided to do a giveaway on my blog for this amazing bracelet that normally retails for $85!!!!!
