Update:  The winner of the Copper Corset Ring is Feathered Designed with the following comment: ” I adore necklaces, next to feathers, necklaces are my got to accessories, the bigger, the bolder, the more unique the better! And I love layering necklaces.  Pearls with chains, chains with woods, black and white, fringe with wood.  The possibilities are endless and what better way to add to my collection then with the Periwinkle Dream…Upcycled Chocolate Link Chain and Ribbon Choker Necklace with Copper and Goldstone accent from the Alchemy Collection.”

Congratulations Feathered Design and a big thank you to all of you who participated!

This week’s spotlight shines on indie designer Mary Jo, who has a wonderfully electic shop on Etsy called Mercurios.  Mary Jo’s style is best described as modern and raw (she doesn’t use molds or patterns — everything is free-hand).  For the contest, she has graciously donated a stunning Copper Wide Band Corset Ring (description below)  I imeediately envisioned myself wearing this bold, goth-like statement piece with a pair of jeans!  And, for those of you looking for a metaphysical connection, you’ll be happy to know that copper offers many new age advantages: copper influences the flow of blood and provides strong energy to the body and brain.  It also heals the metabolism and helps to relieve exhaustion and sexual instability (nice!).

The contest will run from Monday, June 15 to Friday, June 19.  The winner will be selected on Saturday, June 20.

How to Play: Go to Mercurios and pick your favorite accessory.  Return to Fashiongrail and leave a comment to the following question: “What would you wear it with?” The most creative answer will win!  Have fun and good luck!

    I really like the Bewitching… Freeform Wire Wrapped Evil Eye Statement Choker Necklace …Alchemy Collection. I would wear this with my wedding dress so everyone would know I meant business, especially my groom.

  2. The “love knot” ring was my fav accessory and I’d wear it in the bath while I was covered in bubbles!!!

  3. I adore necklaces, next to Feathers, necklaces are my go to accessories.
    the bigger, the bolder, the more unique the better! and I love layering necklaces. Pearls with Chains, Chains with Wood, black with white, Fringe with wood. The possibilities are endless and what better way to add to my collection then with the Periwinkle Dream… Upcycled Chocolate Link Chain and Ribbon Choker Necklace with Copper and Goldstone accent from the Alchemy Collection.
    This necklace is just stunning. Its unique, it’s bold, it’s in my current favourite colours and it has Chain!! And I am the queen of Chain!

    I would wear this necklace with one of my boho chic ensembles. Probably my long colour blocked tiered cambric cotton dress from Etam in Paris. Its’ a beautiful chocolate brown at the top with a skinny straps. It is long and fitted to the first tier where it flounces out in beautiful tiers of Rich Purple, Rustic Golds and Patena’d bronze. I would proudly wear this necklace as it accents the colours of the dress beautifully. I would also pair this dress with great vintage brown suede belt with bronze rivets and a great pair of simple gladiator flats.

    this would be my perfect outfit for this necklace!

    I love the bright orange Elena choker. It’s fun, bright and sexy all at the same time. I’d wear it with my fabulous pair of gray suede peep toe heels… and nothing else! What a surprise for The Boyfriend when he comes home and finds me on the table, instead of dinner! 😉

  5. I would use the Day of the Dead… Mixed Media Pine Wood Altar, Shine dedicated to Dia De Los Muertos …Meditation Collection in support of the Iranian protesters against the dictatorship trying to squelch the voices of the people demanding fair, just elections and freedom.

    Me, the beach, my favorite flip-flops and the Copper Evil Eye ring worn as a toe ring with a great pedicure in blue. Nothing sexier than great feet for summer!

  17. I like the Twilights Eternal Kiss Hematite Ring….

    I would wear it with a new black organic hemp wrap dress I just purchased from Planet Threads. It’s simple and chic. Maybe a cute pair of black gladiator type of sandal? Still undecided on the shoe, but that’s the fun part!
