Lisa Leonard Designs

lisa leonard necklace 003

Fabulous, isn’t it?

I betcha want to know where I got it. Well, it was a gift, and I’ll tell you more about the who’s and how’s and why’s of that soon enough. But for now, I just want you to meet the creator of this fabulous necklace.

Lisa Leonard, of Lisa Leonard Designs.

Go ahead. Click on the link. I’ll wait. I know you’ll be gone awhile.

Alrighty, then. Welcome back. Did you find about ten different kinds of fabulousness that are now on your wish list? I thought so.

I’ve had to opportunity to meet Lisa, and let me tell you, she is as sweet and generous as she is talented. Don’t believe me? Check out her personal blog in addition to her online store, and you’ll see for yourself.

I fell in love with the style of Lisa’s jewelry a few months ago, but didn’t allow myself to purchase anything because, ahem, well, you know I sell jewelry, and 98% of the time I wear the jewelry that I sell, so….you see my dilemma.

But then I went to BlissDom ‘09, and my friend Hillary and I got to have lunch with Lisa and her sister Chrissie (equally sweet and uber-talented creator of Flipflops and Applesauce), and I realized that, jewelry-talent notwithstanding, Lisa was one special lady.

She has mastered her craft, and I’m proud to wear one of her beautiful creations. But even moreso, I’m glad I had the opportunity to get to know such a completely gifted and gracious woman, if only for an afternoon. I’m more than happy to send you her way.

I’d love for you to take a look around her design shop, and come back and tell me what you like best. You never know….maybe I’ll host a Lisa Leonard giveaway in the near future….!

How beautiful is that?! What a sweet gesture! I went, checked it out, drooled & made a list. :D I think my faves are the mama necklace & the teeny tiny initals. Such a sweet idea!

I love her jewelry and her blog. I've been following since I started blogging. That's cool that you guys have met and I didn't know you sold jewelry??

Ok. I am trying REALLY hard here to not be selfish and get annoyed.

Let me explain.

That is pretty much the EXACT gift I had picked out for you.

No I am not kidding.

I decided right after your phone call that my "flowers" were going to wait awhile before they came. I didn't want be part of the "flood" in the beginning that trickles away so quickly. I decided right then that I would get you a personalized name necklace after a few weeks and send it your way.

I guess the Lord laid it on someone else's heart as well.

All selfishness aside, I am so happy for you. That is BEAUTIFUL, and I am so truly glad it brings you joy!!
