Designs by Ilai - Giveaway

“I love minimal, dainty jewelry; I make jewelry that I myself would wear everyday.” – Ilaisaane Lindsay

When I came across the shop “DesignsbyIlai” on Etsy, I must admit I was in awe and of course super excited to be able to offer my readers such a great giveaway featuring 2 gorgeous prizes!! When you go to visit Designs by Ilai on Etsy you will see a vast inventory of beautiful handmade pieces. 

What I love most about Ilaisaane’s jewelry is the simplicity of each piece and the fact that the items are made with quality grade materials. Although, the pieces are simple they go a long way. Ilaisaane's personality radiates through each piece. 

Ilaisaane was SUPER kind to offer not just one (1), but two (2) separate prizes!! (How awesome is that?! I know I am excited about it) so in this giveaway we will have 2 winners!! :) How great is that?!

Read on to get to know a little more about Ilaisaane and her Etsy shop Designs by Ilai and for a chance to enter both contests to win one of these amazing prizes!
