You guys.  I have an awesome giveaway for you today brought to you by my fellow KC blogger friend, Ngan.  This girl is super woman.  She is a Mama of 3 little ones, owner of 2 beautiful jewelry shops and is 1 sweet lady (I know, because we hang out once in awhile)!  Her jewelry is all handmade with gemstones, charms, and chain links and she always comes out with new designs.  And one of you lucky readers will get to win $40 credit to her shop!

{MEET NGAN}

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started creating such pretty jewelry?
My name is Ngan and I live in a Kansas City suburb with my husband and 3 children, all under the age of 5 (well, with the exception of my husband..ha!). I’ve been making jewelry for myself for as long as I can remember, but it was during graduate school that I started designing versatile staple pieces for myself, mainly out of the necessity to minimize the amount of jewelry I had while maximizing each piece’s style potential. I received such great feedback about them that when our first child was born almost 5 years ago and I decided to be a stay at home mom, I viewed it as an opportunity to pursue my love of jewelry making and take it to the business level.

2) What are your favorite color combinations?
I’m a huge fan of navy or teal combined with anything. In my opinion, every single color on the spectrum looks amazing with teal. I also love more unusual combinations, such as peach, chartreuse, and charcoal. Add a pop of cobalt and you’re good to go! I’m super excited that burgundy is back this fall because that is an elegant complement to so many colors! Any time I’m stuck in a color rut, I visit Color Collective (http://color-collective.blogspot.com/) and am instantly inspired.

3) What are you looking forward to doing this Fall?
Favorite fall traditions in our family include apple picking, visiting the pumpkin patch, making Halloween costumes, and going to the Renaissance Festival. We also just enjoy taking walks through wooded trails, breathing in the crisp fall air, and crunching through some leaves.

4) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
I think the more accurate question would be “what isn’t my favorite flavor?” I don’t think you can disappoint me with ice cream. Yep, it can’t be done.

  1. For NV Designs, I would love to see more in the mixed metals/base metals (copper, bronze) sections. I’d also love to see more opaque gemstones used, so they don’t just look like glass.

  2. My fave item is Glass Droplet Necklace – crystal clear with flecks of gold – lampwork boro glass beads & sterling silver chain!

  3. Beautiful pieces! Love the Glass Droplet Necklace – crystal clear with flecks of gold – lampwork boro glass beads & sterling silver chain! Thanks!

  4. Rose gold. I’m obsessed! I’d love to see some mixed metal jewelry with rose gold! That Silver and Crystal Pave Mixed Metal Link Bracelet? Sub in a link of rose gold for every other gold link, and you’ve got a sure sale from me!!

  5. I love Chrysocolla & antiqued silver necklace – Versatile Signature Design by eNVe Designs – One of a Kind – Tranquil Earth. Thanks

  6. Oh my gosh! I would give an arm and a leg (but not an ear) for the Copper and Chevron earrings. They are ASTOUNDING! Really really gorgeous.

  10. I’d love to see you incorporate the colors of Fall Fashion week: Oxblood and/or Forest Green. I think it would be stunning with 14k gold!

  11. What beautiful and unique stuff! I love it all, but I think the Colorful Glass Droplet Necklace is my fave.

  12. If I had to choose something I’d like to see more of (which I’d be hard pressed to do), I’d say more Smoky Quartz & Sterling Silver pieces…

  13. I love the Faceted Shell Pearl & Frosted Glass – Long Versatile Necklace – Signature Design – One of a Kind.

  14. Wow. I am speechless, the bracelets are amazing! I especially love the Gunmetal and Crystal Pave Mixed Metal Link Bracelet with Pave Toggle Clasp! But seriously they’re all brillant!

  15. I just love it all!! From eNVe I like the Tiny Ruby Drop and 14kt gold fill delicate gemstone necklace, and from Daily Does I love the Fresh Air – pale mint ivory smoke and gold necklace!!
