Spring Giveaway From Swedish Jewelry Designer

Hello friends! It’s time again for another Splendid Willow Giveaway. The person behind this fabulous giveaway is the very talented jewelry designer Åsa (Aasa) Daxberg.

First you might want to know a little bit about her because her business is thriving and she is starting to make major inroads in many leading department stores and fashion boutiques worldwide.

(Asa outside her studio on her horse farm in Texas).

I know of Asa because we are both close friends of Ingrid’s (The Edgewater Hotel gal, remember?). And whenever Ingrid is wearing something new by Asa, we all drool.

Asa, a Swede based in Texas, has always been interested in fashion and design. After getting educated in fine silver jewelry making she started her jewelry business in 2005.

“It started more as a hobby and I had no idea that five years later my designs would be featured in magazines and worn by people in different parts of the world. I am incredibly thankful and frankly somewhat in shock that my style appeals to so many people. I pinch myself every day”.

Asa’s jewelry is all made by her own hand in sterling silver, brass and different precious stones and beads.

“I always go back to my Swedish roots. I like my designs to be simple, beautiful and meaningful”. (Asa will engrave personal messages on many of her pieces).

Asa is so busy with her designs and shipments that her website has been suffering for quite a while (and most of her customers buy from her directly). But in a month or so, her site will be updated and all her latest collections will be featured.

Now, back to the actual Giveway.

Asa is now generously offering a beautiful necklace from her 2010 Summer collection. This beautiful necklace, which Ingrid gets to show off, is called “Recycled Glass Joy”. Folks, I absolutely love this chunky statement piece and think that it is the perfect accessory for the Summer!

Valued at $130 this necklace is made by recycled Petrol colored glass beads from Africa. The beads are hanging on a hand dyed leather band together with a hand hammered silver medallion.

But wait – it gets even more interesting! If you see anything else on her website that you would rather have to a value of $130 or less, then tell us about it in your comment and you might be the lucky winner of that instead!

How to win:

1) Leave a comment (one entry/person) on this post (the necklace or what else you chose for $130 or less).

2) To increase your chances of winning, you can Tweet about the giveaway or mention it on your blog. Just let me know – and I will bump up your entries accordingly.

(Tweet = 1 extra entry, new follower = 1 extra entry, write-up/link = 2 extra entries)

I hope that you already are a subscriber of my news feeds. No pressure, though. It is just a good way to get my news posts straight to your e-mail so you don’t have to look up my blog every time. (It does not cost anything and I do not share the information with anybody).

The giveaway ends on Wednesday May 12th at midnight PST and is open to anybody. I will ship worldwide.

I hope you enjoy this giveaway as much as I do! Good luck to you all!

And don’t forget to visit Asa’s website here – Asa Jewelry.

I am super busy this week (and I apologize for not being very blog alert) but one of the many, many reasons is a meeting x 2 with Swedish Royalty! I will tell you all about it next week! Cyber hugs to you all!

    When I saw the necklace I did the visible intake of breath thing. Silver, teal blue sea glass beads, Swedish design, hand made….really. Just superb.

  • Hi Monika! I just checked out her website and all of her jewelry is absolutely gorgeous! Usually, when I peruse a website, there are a few items I like, but I loved almost all of what I saw…highly unusual for me. Since, I liked it so much, I added her website to my Artist and Music blogroll.

    Thanks for sharing information about such a cool shop and person! I think I’m going to have to write a post about my favourite online shops, including Asa Jewelry.

    Have a wonderful weekend and I can’t wait to read your next post!

    Oops…almost forgot. It was really difficult to choose which jewelry piece I liked best, but the brushed silver disc necklace on page 7 is possibly my favourite.

  • This is gorgeous! Count me in please! And Mon, you are off to meet royalty? I’m so intrigued – I can’t wait to hear all about it!

  • I totally love the simplistic beauty of Asa’s jewelry. What a terrific giveaway, Monika. I’d love to have the Item #47 – the brushed nickel cross on brown leather. So pretty and kind of bohemian. A cross always reminds me of my many blessings.

    Have a Great Weekend,
    Kelly
    {and I’ll send a tweet, too!}

    I really like the necklace that is featured and the name-“Recycled Glass Joy”is quite catchy!
    Enjoyed looking at all of the pieces in the collection–fun and interesting!

  • Everything is wonderful! I would be very happy with the lovely necklace she has chosen. I really love the quartz and silver necklace but it is $150.00. I will definitely add her website to my favorites. I did a link to your blog from mine today and told about the give away. Hopefully some of my readers will visit you. I will say something extra on facebook as well. If you are on facebook I will sign up to be a fan and I just tried twitter. I have been working on that so I can follow people and be followed but it said I was not a registered user. I thought I set everything up this weekend. Will have to go through that process again. Computers! I have a love hate relationship with them. Good luck with everything. Mona
