Up for grabs: feather earrings winner's choice of gold or silver


meet joanna, the fashionista behind the blog Lifestyle Bohemia and the jewelry shop, Brooklyn thread

Q: How long have you been designing jewelry? Why & When did you start?
A: I’ve always loved crafting and making things with my hands. I’ve been especially drawn to jewelry and accessories. BrooklynThread started as a hobby in March of 2009. I had a lot of design ideas in my head and once I started making the pieces, I couldn’t stop. After receiving many kind comments and positive feedback from customers, I decided to take it more seriously. I then developed my website. Most people around me have corporate jobs so I never thought I could make a living while living creatively.

Q: How is your personal style reflected into your designs?
A: I would describe my personal style as easy, comfortable and natural. My wardrobe consists of mostly basic items - plain tees & tops, skinny jeans, leggings, which I then love to dress up by layering bracelets and/or necklaces. I design my jewelry so that it can be comfortable yet fun to wear.

Q: Do you have any interesting sources of inspiration?
A: My sources of inspiration include my love of vintage findings, interior design trends, printed textiles, urban culture, bohemian culture, old Brooklyn architecture, the 60’s and 70’s. The idea of someone in a far away place wearing one of my designs is most inspiring.

Q: If you could see your jewelry on any 3 celebrities who would you pick & why?
A: Sienna Miller, Keri Russell and Nicole Richie. I love how many of their looks consist of a plain outfit which they then accessorize in a way that looks comfortable & effortless, but still fashionable.

Q: In three words, why do you love blogging.
A: Inspiration, discovery and friendship.
