Loretta Fontaine | Custom Necklace Giveaway

Today, I want to introduce you to my friend Loretta Fontaine. She is the brains and beauty behind EcoHappy Style. Loretta is a Renaissance woman of the highest order and makes her life as an architect, artist, photographer, silversmith, author, blogger and green design advocate. Seriously, she's my go-green-guru.




This has been a big year for Loretta. She launched EcoHappy Style, wrote a book, founded the Native Tree Project, and recently opened an online shop to sell her gorgeous hand-crafted jewelry. And to celebrate, she is giving away a custom necklace to one lucky La Maison Boheme reader! But before we get to that, take a look at Loretta's stunning creations.






And here is Loretta working in her studio...




The Necklace Giveaway

Loretta is will be making a custom sterling silver photo necklace for one La Maison Boheme reader. Your cropped and adjusted photograph will be printed at a Pro Lab and set in the bezel of the necklace. The photograph will be sealed and protected with a durable layer of clear resin. The jewelry is cast in sterling silver and given a matte finish with an eco-friendly process. Liver of sulfur is used to antique and oxidize the sterling silver, and the high areas of the design were burnished to a brilliant shine. The necklace is finished with a white freshwater pearl. The necklace is on a 16″- 18″ sterling silver cable chain, (there is a 2″ extender finished with a tiny freshwater pearl to extend the chain to 18″). The diameter of the square silver shape is 1/2″ x 1/2″.

Here is a photo of the necklace below.
Loretta made this one for me using a photo of my children.
Isn't it dreamy?

I've been meaning to follow La Maison Boheme for a very long time,I read your site all the time, just never got around to "following" so this is a good push to make me do it. Loretta's jewelry is gorgeous! It is hard for me to pick a favorite. The Maria Ring with Crimson Rose is stunning. So are the Simple Freshwater Pearl Earrings. The Custom Maria Necklace with Photograph would be a perfect birthday present for my grandmother. Everything is beautiful!

Connie said...

So happy to see this on your blog. I love your necklace Sarah, so it's nice to see her blog and have a chance to win one. I liked her on FB, and will share as soon as I finish my comment. I'm also a follower of your beautiful blog already.

She has many beautiful pieces in her shop (love the Lucy earrings), but the necklace she made for you is perfection! Gorgeous stuff!

Loretta is just as nice as she is talented. I admire her patience to work on so many things while raising her family and seemingly keep it all humming.

What a fun giveaway! Subscribed!
I really like the custom photo necklace. But I also really like the necklace with the rose links - although I admit that before I read the title, I thought it was a bracelet and I thought it was very lovely as a bracelet.
