Giveaway: The Ropes Maine

One of my absolute favorite independent jewelry designers is The Ropes, Maine.  The designer, Shana Aldrich, shares my affinity for nautical, East Coast style and whips up the most incredible bracelets in neons, metallics, and more classic hues.  She has an amazing eye for color and design (just look at her pinboards for proof) and makes everything out of marine rope and hardware.  I’m in complete and utter awe of each of her creations.  Lucky for us, she let me pick out an assortment of five of my favorite The Ropes bracelets to give away to one very lucky S&S reader.

To enter, simply like Stripes & Sequins on Facebook, like The Ropes Maine on Facebook, and leave a comment below (here on the blog in the comments section,) stating that you’ve done so.
