~inspired leather cuff giveaway~

This giveaway is brought to you by a real life friend of mine, Lisa. Our girls go to school
together, and we live just miles apart. Lisa is one of the most generous people I know, with one of the biggest hearts.
Here is her story:

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved to make beautiful things. Throughout the years I have created in many different mediums, but I have always loved being able to wear my art. In November 2012 I opened an etsy shop and began to sell personalized soldered photo pendants and ornaments. I loved being able to capture my customers most precious faces in a piece of jewelry or hang on their Christmas tree each year. These make perfect gifts for Christmas for the special people in your life!

In February of this year I had the opportunity to sell a soldered heart necklace design to raise money to fight human trafficking. (Melaine shared about it here!) Over 500 heart necklaces were sold in a matter of 8 weeks– raising more than $11,000! I had the blessing of witnessing and participating in a miracle! I never imagined anything of this proportion was possible but God took my little creation and did something BIG with it! I was humbled and honored to be a part of God's rescue mission on earth. He never stops pursuing and rescuing his daughters. Every single heart matters to Him! Since then, I have added an additional line of necklaces in collaboration with my friend Melody Ross to raise even more money to help empower women.

This summer I expanded my offerings to include stamped metal and leather jewelry. I have repurposed leather belts and given them a new life and message. I love creating these custom leather cuffs with words that speak life and hope! We all need words of truth and encouragement each day and what could be better than to wear a beautiful word on your wrist!? It's like having your own Wonder Woman cuff to remind you of your superpower! :) My heart feels most alive when I am creating a beautiful piece of jewelry with a meaningful message. I'd love to create something special for you!

Lisa would like to give away a leather cuff to one of you My Sweet Savannah readers!
Here are some of my favorites:



Aren't they gorgeous?! I own a couple but will be getting a few more for Christmas gifts {think teacher gifts too!}

To be entered to win one of these gorgeous cuffs, all you need to do is leave a comment below telling me which one you would choose.
You'll need to visit Lisa's adorable etsy shop to see all her designs.

For an additional entry, like Love Squared Designs on Facebook.

Leave a separate comment for each one and be sure to leave your email address. I will pick a random winner and announce back here on Friday.

On a personal note, I'd like to share a little story about Lisa and her big heart.
When our puppy Harley went missing {no, he's still not home}
Lisa called to tell me she'd like to drop something off for me.
She drove over with a leather cuff that reads, "never give up"
Tears, serious tears. Every time I wear that bracelet I remember the fight to bring Harley home.

Lisa is also participating in a local art show:



Thank you Lisa for my bracelet and also for hosting this wonderful giveaway, and for all that you do with your big heart!
If you can't wait for the giveaway, you can save 10% now through the month of October with the code

Hi Melanie,
Gorgeous bracelets! The Walk in Faith sentiment speaks to me.
Thanks for the opportunity.

whitney said...

I am Brave! I turned fifty this fall and we have also had so many struggles to go thru, our family. So I have decided to be Brave about every thing no matter how small. Trying new things or even taking or having my photo taken. I'm so judgemental of myself. I could go on on.

Captain J said...

Happy Monday! What a blessing to be a blessing to others through your beautiful gifts and talents! Love the "dream bigger!" God calls us to dream big his plans are higher than our plans and when we set our faces like stone to do his will he calls is in his favor! For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed. (Isaiah 50:7 KJV) our step of faith will create an anointing to the fullest and produce ephesians 3:20Ephesians 3:20 With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine. Thanks for the opportunity and reminder to dream big every day and live it to the fullest john 10:10

I love the walk in faith, not in fear and the pray big leather cuffs. I have 2 beautiful grand babies with Cycstic Fibrosis, and I need to constantly remind myself to pray big that a cure will be found in time for Ellie and Judah. Sometimes fear creeps in as I think about their future, but I need to walk in faith that God is good and holds their futures in His hands.

I would select "dream bigger". I have gotten out of my comfort zone and pursuing my dream so I feel it would be an inspiration to wear the bracelet with the that saying. I also liked her facebook page. Beautiful work.

Peggy W said...

OH how sweet! Bloom or walk in faith or brave... you see we are a military family and move a bit, less so than when I was a child but often enough. Somehow over the years I let old fears take hold and hide myself. I was no longer brave nor was I "blooming where I was planted." but something happened in the past couple of years... Despite the struggle and the hard time that ensued I learned to lean more heavily on the Lord, to be brave, to allow myself to grow again.

Darla P. said...

The amazing grace cuff says it all to me. They are all sweet! Thanks!

Wymferg said...

I'm very saddened to read that Harley is still not home! I think of her all the time. Every time I see your update, I hope to see that she has returned!
On a different note, these cuffs are very handsome, I would choose the "walk in faith" design for its marriage of toughness and the delicate design.

Debby Owens said...

These bracelets are beautiful!! I would love to wear the Walk in Faith, Not in Fear cuff because my husband has had cancer for over two years. My motto has been Walk by Faith and Not by Sight.

Erin said...

I like every one of them! I think Amazing Grace is my favorite.

I like "Oh Happy Day" and "Choose Joy", but I'd have to go with simply "Joy" since that's my middle name!

Staci said...

I adore the 'Choose Joy' as I have to pray daily for this. The turquoise cuff with silver larger flower and brass smaller is great too. Perfect for Christmas and Birthday gifts. I always try to buy that will give back in some way. Thanks for sharing!

prissy said...

Choose Joy would be my fave!

prissy said...

I'd love to see her do one that says, "Love all, worship One"!
