A Little Giveaway... Kate Holland Design

I am honored to present to you:

Kate Holland.
Jewelry Queen.
Ridiculously Talented Person.
and one of my Best Friends!
(and the sponsor of this giveaway!!!)
Kate making Jewelry

A few bits of info about Kate: 
She loves shoes.  She hates sauces, and she collects children's books.  She likes yoga, hiking, water skiing, boating, anything outside, and tries to like running.  She loves movies, spending time with friends, and is always up for an international adventure (in fact, this girl has been just about everywhere) hates snakes and sharks.  editor's sidenote: Kate is such a baby about snakes she could barely stand being in the house with my son's rubber snake.  And even though she hates sharks, she and I have gone scuba diving of the Florida Keys together, and snorkeling in the Red Sea.  Go figure!

Why Kate would make you want to puke with envy if you didn't know how lovable she is:  This girl can do everything!  A few of her hobbies/ jobs:  custom framing, making furniture and reupholstering furniture, fine art (painting, drawing, murals for bedrooms, etc., photography), quilting, color and design consultation for home decor.  Ridiculous, huh?  Yep.

Kate has worked in the film industry for many years now as a costumer and production coordinator, associate producer, working on feature films, commercials and small projects for the sundance channel.  She worked at the oscars, has met many big names in the movie business and many of them have bought her lovely jewelry.

Kate began making jewelry as a hobby, and then moved to LA for a film and next thing you know, Cameron Diaz wore her necklace to the Oscars in 2003 (that is a Kate original in the photo below).

Seriously?  Seriously.   Some celebrities that have worn Kate's necklaces on magazine covers include:  Eliza Duschku, Jennifer Garner, Heather Graham,  and Cristina Applegate.
Her necklaces have been seen on Everwood, Tru Calling, Josh & Drake, Army Wives, and High School Musical 2.

Kate has been featured in Fred Siegel and a handful of small galleries in California, Salt Lake City, and Park City, UT.  Most of her jewelry is unique and one of a kind, hand cut precious and semi precious stones on solid sterling silver and solid 14 and 18 carat gold.  Right now her beauties are available online, but she also has shows and boutiques if you get on her mailing list.

Kate gave us a darling necklace for this giveaway.
This necklace retails at $100 and is made from pure 14 carat gold and solid sterling silver.  I love how it is simple and small enough to wear everyday, with everything, and since it is gold AND silver, will really match everything in your wardrobe!!!
