Update: The winner of the casual friday necklace is Lauren with the following comment  “http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13118276 this is a great necklace to wear with a short pearlescent gold dress. I would want to wear one that is high waisted and fuller at the hips like this: http://s2.thisnext.com/media/230×230/Forever21-gold-dust-strapless_67857A93.jpg I would also pair that with some sexy pin up pumps with an ankle strap in cream.

 

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


This week Fashiongrail features another incredibly talented artist, Anca Ariciuc, who opened her Etsy store Anca NY in 2007.  “I only like to make one of a kind pieces,” said Anca, “because for me beauty is sprung from the act of creation.”  Anca explains that the “Casual Friday’s” necklace was inspired by jewelry scraps that were taken apart and put together in other incarnations.  Anca did have a specific muse in mind when she created the Casual Friday’s necklace: “The wearer is funky and young; funny and outgoing. She likes to mix and match, and her outfits always hold an element of surprise.”  I love it!

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!
