I first came across Kara Yoo at a local market at The Beaumont in Vancouver last year. Her minimalistic designs immediately drew me in. I love the simplicity combined with an edge; catering to those who wear very few pieces, or those who master the art of layering. I quickly began chatting with Kara to learn all about her business, and was eager to collaborate with this local talent! I purchased this sterling silver stacking ring featured above on the right for $22. It is one of the only layering rings that I have owned that has not tarnished; even after many dips in pools and hot tubs when most rings wouldn’t have lasted. I wear it every single day, and even after over a year, there is no sign of wear. Kara began her business in 2012, right here in Vancouver. Her entrepreneurial spirit stems from her family, and her creativity shines through in her designs. Kara carefully handcrafts each piece in house, using tarnish-resistant Argentium Sterling Silver, Gold-Fill and solid Gold. Her versatile designs range from stacking rings, studs, cuffs and layering necklaces, to a fine jewelry collection featuring gorgeous collectible rings and studs that I would be over the moon to receive as a special gift. View her collections here. One of her newest pieces, the lariat, is a must-have piece this season. This delicate necklace can stand alone as a statement piece, or be paired with another for layering. I personally LOVE the lariet paired with the neck cuff, and have been wearing it repeatedly (and have no plans on stopping!). How simple is it to take your jeans and t-shirt look up a notch with this pretty combo?! 😉 Kara has graciously offered to gift ONE lucky winner this lariat necklace! You do not want to miss out on this contest, so follow along below to enter! Winner will be annouced Friday morning at 9am! xo ** Please note that the necklaces featured above are TWO separate pieces!** a Rafflecopter giveaway Related Tags: kara yoo, the beaumont studios, Vancouver fashion blogger, vancouver jewelry designer Samantha Dempster Hi!
