Giveaway + Interview: Lulu Frost x The Clasp.

lulu frost the clasp sloane crosley 2

When I found out that Lulu Frost was collaborating with author Sloane Crosley, mild freakout ensued. Their collaboration represents a collision of my two most favorite things: jewelry and literature. You know by now that Lulu Frost is one of my absolute favorite jewelry designers (more on that here, here, and here) but Sloane is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read and re-read her book, “I Was Told There’d Be Cake” an embarrassing number of times (she’s absolutely hilarious and has such a great way with words) and have followed her work ever since. (As an aside, I also really loved this article she wrote a few months ago about why we (women) need to stop apologizing. It’s a must-read if you apologize too much.)

Sloane’s new book (and first novel!) The Clasp just hit stores, and today, two of you will win a copy of The Clasp and the necklace that Lisa designed – named Kezia, after the main character, and inspired by the famous necklace that the characters track down in the book. (The necklace retails for $225.)

I sat down with Lisa to chat about the collaboration. Have a read, and when you’re done… enter the giveaway via the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post.

Grace: What brought about the collaboration with Sloane Crosley? Why did the two of you decide to collaborate?

Lisa: I’ve been friends with Sloane for years and she asked me for a bit of jewelry related advice related to her first novel, which just so happened to involve a jewelry designer.  The novel is about three friends who reunite over the quest for a famous necklace, and I was lucky to get to consult a bit with Sloane for her book.  The storyline itself was calling for a jewelry collaboration!  Creating this necklace felt like we were bringing the words in her pages to life.  We both loved the idea of merging our passions, writing and design, into one. 
 .
 Grace: Tell me about the design process for the necklace. 

Lisa: Sloane brought me a gorgeous drawing of a necklace from the 19th century which served as inspiration for the initial designs. The sketch of that necklace actually hung above Sloane’s desk and influenced her writing process, so I wanted to incorporate some of those elements in the final piece.  In creating the piece, I stayed true to my aesthetic with classic Lulu Frost crystal elements, pearl accents and custom chain.  The gorgeous sapphire blue central stone adds the perfect touch of color for fall.  When I saw the final sample in person it reminded me of a collector’s item – a very special piece that generations of daughters and granddaughters will hope to inherit someday.

Grace: How would you style the necklace? 

Lisa: I’ll definitely style this piece with evening attire for holiday events.  It’s really stunning over bare skin, so a great black cocktail dress with a plunging necklace would be ideal.  One of my favorite things is that the Kezia Necklace really can be worn casually, even with a simple t-shirt, denim and sneakers on a Sunday afternoon. In fact, that’s exactly what I wore today!

Grace: The Clasp aside, what was the best book you read this summer?

Lisa: The Four Agreements – for when I’m in the mood to soul-search.  

Grace: Who are some of your favorite authors?

Lisa: I love Jonathan Safran Foer, but honestly this year I’ve been too busy to read much – planning a wedding on top of running a company leaves me precious little time to read!

Grace: What was your favorite part of The Clasp?

Lisa: One of my favorite parts of the book is a scene in which one of the characters says something along the lines of “…Jewelry is as alive as whomever it touches.”  As someone who grew up around antique and vintage jewelry, I really resonate with this idea.  It goes hand in hand with the reason I was so passionate about designing jewelry in the first place.  Of course we can all look at a piece of jewelry and qualify it as “pretty” or “shiny” or “sparkly”, but when you find a piece that speaks strongly enough to you that you want to make it your own, then it really means something different to you than anyone else.  It becomes a part of you – an extension of your own character in a way.

    This is such a great giveaway! I just finished Girl on the Train. I loved it.

  2. clare says 10.9.15

    I’m so excited to read sloan’s first novel; I loved “I was told there would be cake”!

  3. Elisabeth says 10.9.15

    Such a beautiful necklace! I just finished All the Light We Cannot See and thought it was as good as everyone said it would be- so beautifully written and tragic. xxx

  4. Megan Davis says 10.9.15

    What a gorgeous necklace! And I can’t wait to read the book that inspired it!

  5. Kristiana says 10.9.15

    I absolutely LOVE Lulu Frost pieces. So unique, yet timeless. This is a great collaboration, and I can’t wait to read The Clasp. Love “I was told there’d be cake” so much!

  6. (Kellie Burke) The Yuppie Files says 10.9.15

    I’ve gotten addicted to the Outlander series- it’s just historical enough to not make it feel like a total guilty pleasure, but I can’t say that it’s fine literature either! But really addicting!

  7. elizabeth ashley says 10.9.15

    I’m in the middle of reading “All the light we cannot see” and loving the details and character development.

  8. Marty says 10.9.15

    Currently reading “Everything I Never Told You” by Celeste Ng. It grabbed me from the first sentence. Not just a possible murder mystery of sorts, but the tale of complicated family dynamics and relationships. Probably going to want to grab something a little more lighthearted after this one (maybe Mindy Kaling’s new book? Love her).

  9. Heather L. says 10.9.15

    I love Lulu Frost too and look forward to reading the book! Great giveaway- thanks!!!

    I’ve been getting into YA fiction lately, even though I’m an adult! I just finished reading Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. But I actually also just finished Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, which took me a long time to get through, but was well worth it.

    I wish that more authors and designers did collaborations. What a beautiful necklace!
