Guess who’s back with a decidedly less controversial giveaway! And we’ve been working on this one behind the scenes for a while.
Since then, I’ve learned much more about the designer, Leah Nolden. Leah has a a degree in menswear but after disenchantment from working in the NYC fashion industry, she decided to step away
and do her own thing. Hence, Dushi Trade — a jewelry line designed by music, nature, and whatever strikes Leah as being fly!
“I would make feather dangle earrings to match outfits when I was going out to party when I just didn’t have the right earring to make the outfit complete. When I wore the earrings, I would get compliments and inquires on where I got them. After about a year of urging from a couple of friends and again my sister, I decided to get serious and I invested a bit of my personal savings and started Dushi Trade,” she explains.
I love that kind of ingenuity, and when Leah reached out and offered to design a special limited edition Afrobella jewelry set, I was just BEYOND psyched.
That’s it up above — a graceful golden butterfly, a peacock feather, and a wooden circle make up the necklace, and the butterfly flutters in a gold hoop for the earrings, all bedecked with beads in beautiful ocean colors.
And for a special Afrobella/Dushi Trade giveaway, I’ve got one pair of beautiful Afrobella earrings, and one pair of Dushi peacock feather hoop earrings — to be sent to two very lucky readers!
Leah wanted me to ask a specific question of you bellas: If you had a Christmas wish list and could only get one item/ thing (not limited to an material item, could be a trip, a deed, etc), what would it be?
In the interest of turning around these giveaways speedily for the holidays — I will leave the comments open until Tuesday morning, then the comments will be closed and two winners will be chosen. So tell me, bellas — what do you want for Christmas? It could be anything!
