Leather Horse Bit Bracelet

Margaret Vera is made up of two creative souls Meg and her brother.  They design and create accessories for the bohemian soul (like me) and all of their designs have the perfect mix of tough yet chic, rustic, and delicate – it’s a beautiful madness of rugged and soft.  Their best selling horse bit bracelet is made from recycled leather and comes in gold or silver with either a brown or belt leather band it looks like it cost 3 times more than the $36 price tag. Perfect classic piece to wear with a chunky watch or dainty bangles.  I also loved how beautifully it fit.   As recommended I measure my wrist and the bracelet fits perfectly!  It will instantly become a favorite!!

Meg has even offered to give one lucky reader the opportunity to win a custom bracelet for themselves!  Simply visit Margaret Vera pick a favorite, return back to fashiongrail and tell us which is your favorite and what you’d wear it with (make sure you provide url in the comment).  For extra entries tweet about the giveaway or like fashiongrail on Facebook (make sure that you mention that you did in a seperate comment below).  One winner will be chosen on March 3 2014.

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!

 

Product Description: Casual Friday’s Necklace.  Retail value $50.  Two-strand asymmetrical necklace in antiqued burnished brass finish. The necklace is an eclectic mix of chains, a few charms and olivie green beads, and 19 mother of pearl coin beads.  The necklace measures 20″ at the shorter strand and 23″ at the longer one.
