Ashwood Avenue Necklace Giveaway!
We are thrilled to be hosting a giveaway from our dear friend Cassy’s amazing jewelry line, Ashwood Avenue. We’re honestly OBSESSED and wear her pieces all the time. It’s a definite office wardrobe staple around here! They’re the perfect addition to any outfit – plus, they’re all completely painstakingly handmade (down to dying the beads and hand sewing the leather).
Want to get to know the creative mind behind this cool new brand? You’re in luck! We asked Cassy a couple questions about Ashwood Avenue and here is what she had to say:
How did you get into jewelry making?
I’ve always been a creative, crafty person, with a passion for learning different mediums. At school I studied Art and Design, and as a side project I would make necklaces from old materials I didn’t use for school. I’d give these necklaces to friends and family, and loved the feeling of giving an item that was handcrafted and unique.
What are your favorite types of materials to work with?
Leather and wood. They both are rugged but have a graceful quality.
How would you recommend people wear their pieces?
I love seeing people incorporate their own personal style with my pieces. My style is pretty casual, I typically throw on a necklace with jeans and a plain tee but it’s inspiring to see how other people wear them
What inspires your creativity?
I’ve always found inspiration in using natural materials and the magic that comes with combining different textures, colors and patterns. I’m also inspired by other creatives and makers. It’s awesome seeing other successful people working hard at their craft and business, and doing what they love.
Any new or big things coming?
