The very lovely and talented Sofia Barao from Sofia Barao Boutique has kindly donated a crochet necklace for a giveaway on my blog. I have always loved Sofia's work, it is excellently made with such careful attention to detail. She also happens to be a pretty wonderful person (and I'm a little bit in love with her haircut). Sofia has an upcoming exhibition of her crochet necklaces this year in October at the wonderful store of the great ceramics artist, Karin Eriksson, in Manos, Stockholm. Congrats Sofia!

The giveaway is for a one-of-a-kind crochet necklace that will be made especially for the winner in the colour of their choice from the colours available in Sofia's "de la poésie et des jours" collection.

To enter, please visit Sofia's shop, and leave a comment telling me which one of her pieces is your favourite. This giveaway is open to everyone. I will select a winner at random on Friday. Good luck!

They are so beautiful!

Like everyone else, I love them all, especially the 1920's style headbands, like this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/60257212/walking-on-a-fairy-land-crown

My favourite colour in la poésie collection would have to be the camel/beige. So pretty!

What a lovely giveaway ... Sofia's shop is filled with so much loveliness it's hard to choose, but I'd have to say my current favourite is the 'softly whispering - crochet necklace'.

What interesting pieces! I love the boldness of the 'et puis le jour arriva' - crochet textile necklace! It is such a statement piece.

Thank you for introducing us to Sofia! As someone who has a metal allergy, I am always looking for fun alternatives to accessorize with.
