{giveaway} the plain canvas

If you love minimalist jewelry with an attitude, you are going to love everything that Jessie from {The Plain Canvas} creates!  Here are some of my favorite pieces from her gorgeous collection:
















I love all of her designs - some are edgy and some are feminine.  I really love the Pink Popsicle Gemstone Bracelet because I love the use of the colors {one of my all time favorite color combos} mixed with the gold hardware!  I had a little interview with Jessie that I wanted to share with you all.  I know you're going to love reading her answers, so check it out:
 
Tell us a bit about yourself and your family.
My name is Jessie. I am 25 years old, a fashion marketing graduated. I love everything from the 60’s and have a passion for minimalism and Scandinavian design.

When did you start creating and what inspired you to start?
I used to make a lot of small things for my parents and friends when I was a little kid. I wonder if they still keep them. Haha. I started making jewelry because I have unreasonably small wrists. It’s almost impossible to find a bracelet that fits my wrist. So I started making my own bracelets.

Where do you get your ideas...anything in particular that inspires you?
I take my inspiration from the city, the street.

What are your long term goals for your shop?
Honestly, I don’t have any long term goals for my shop at the moment. But I do really want to spend more time designing and creating. I feel like myself when I am making something with my hands. =)

What is your favorite product you have created? Was it hard to part with?
My favorite product is the gold filled spike necklace, called Pretty Tough. It’s simple and edgy. I wear it almost everyday since I made it. It wasn’t really hard to part with. However, the hardest part of my creative process is sourcing. Sometimes, it takes quite a bit of time to find the right components.

What do you do when you're not creating?
My day job is a personal shopper, so I spend most of my time shopping for my clients and networking. Besides that, I love drinking a lot of coffee, soaking in hot bath, watching cheesy Hollywood romantic comedies, going to book shops and listening to a lot of music, my favorite music artists are Blue Six and Lisa Ekdahl. Also, I started a blog last year. I am having a lot of fun blogging and interacting with other bloggers.

What are some places we can find you on the web?-
Main Store - www.etsy.com/shop/theplaincanvas
Twitter - twitter.com/ThePlainCanvas
Blog - theplaincanvas.blogspot.com/

Tell us a fun fact about yourself
I can’t wink! Haha

If you could go on vacation anywhere, where would you go?
Africa! I love animals, especially lions. One of my biggest dreams is going on a Safari trip.

Is anyone else jealous of Jessie's day job???  I would love to be able to do that...  Maybe one day!  So, my lovely readers, Jessie is giving away a fantastic gift - the Pretty Tough Spike Necklace - y'all are so lucky!!
