Lil Petite Jewelry GIVEAWAY!!!

I am proud to introduce It's Simple Love's newest sponsor; Julia of Lil Petite Jewelry.  She has a fresh new line, all hand crafted with attention to the smallest detail.  They are made of raw materials to give each piece a modern urban feel.  You can find divine gemstones or pearls combined with original designs and limited edition designs.  Want to know more?  Julia took the time to answer a few fun and insightful questions for us.  






1. How did Lil Petite Jewelry start?
Growing up, I was always making things and had craft hobbies. It wasn’t until a trip to South America that I came across some beautiful gemstones and started to collect them, while reading as much as I could about their special properties. Not long after that, my friend asked me to design a necklace with his girlfriend's birthstone as an anniversary gift. I enjoyed every part of the process and knew that this was something that I loved doing and I haven’t stopped ever since.


2. Who or what inspires you?
Things that surround me, like the city, nature and people inspire me. I read a lot of interior design and fashion blogs and having a camera handy is a must. I take pictures when and wherever I can of anything that I think will inspire me.



3. What do you enjoy most about designing jewelry?
The best part is that I get to do what I love. I’m constantly thinking of new ideas and feel excited about every new piece of jewelry that I make. Knowing that someone chooses my jewelry to express there personal style can be very rewarding.

4. Describe your jewelry in three words.
Delicate, feminine and organic.

5. What is unique about your jewelry?


I design my jewelry to be delicate and simplistic, while only using quality gemstones and freshwater pearls. I’m constantly making new designs and limited addition pieces. Most importantly though, is a lot of love is put into the design process and the making of Lil Petite jewelry.


Thank you so much for giving us more insight to the woman behind the creations Julia!  Be sure to check out her new website, Lil Petite Etsy, and Julia's Blog.
