Susan Hanover Designs + a Giveaway!

Wearing a Susan Hanover Designs gold plated necklace with quartz.

I have had the pleasure of meeting a fantastic person and jewelry designer; Susan Hanover of Susan Hanover Designs. I was so impressed by Susan's  jewelry line and how fashion forward this woman's vision is, I just have to rave about it.  Susan started off her career in law but as her family grew, so did her passion for designing jewelry and so she decided to make a business out of it. Definitely a woman to look up to for inspiration, Susan is a business minded, family oriented, fashionista. I am honored to have met her. Check out her collections at www.SusanHanoverDesigns.com.

I fell in love with Susan's edgy yet sophisticated pieces. Susan uses natural materials from the Earth to complete her pieces and allows them to bring their own natural brilliance to life. Jewelry can transform any outfit from casual to trendy in an instant, and so Susan Hanover Designs have been hitting trunk shows, and reaching the hands of many popular celebrities of our day such as Beyonce, Mary Kate Olsen, and have even made appearances on shows such as Gossip Girl.

Susan Hanover Designs cuffs have made a huge impression, being featured on an episode of Gossip Girls. The cuff is definitely the next item that I will be picking up from Susan's line. There are so many colors, metals, and stones to choose from. I'm sure I will have a lot of fun.


Tassel necklaces have been a huge trend.

Besides just making large trendy pieces, Susan has created gorgeous sparkling disks, evil eyes, and beaded tassels that have been a huge hit. Check out the website to see many more of Susan Hanover's designs at - www.SusanHanoverDesigns.com.

  10. The multi strand mixed metal bracelet with crystal buckle. It speaks volumes and is very fashionable. I love the fact that it is multi color so it would fit just well with any attire.

  13. I love her jewelry line! It's amazing! My favorite piece is under Metals & Stones.. I like the polished silver 3 inch cuff with multicolored stones such as white, lilac and aqua. I like this cuff because I hardly wear cuffs, and I would love nothing more than to start a collection. Also, these three colors are perfect for spring and summer, which I have some outfits that it would pair very lovely with them.

    Done all the steps, I already follow your blog and your twitter :) follow me back on my blog and twitter?

    I love the Metals and stones collection the most, because those brigth colored stones in different shades could perfectly complete every kind of outfit. I prefer these mixes when those shiny solids meet and make something brilliant and elegant, outstanding *_*

  22. OMG, I absolutely love this designer - thank you for introducing us to her designs!!! If I HAVE to pick a collection [they are all gorgeous] I would pick 'brilliant' because it is just so glamorous. I also now have a serious craving for the piece in your post, even though I wouldn't have focused on it from the site. You and your photographer did an amazing job. You guys made it look almost ethereal with the sunset as a backlight and your skin as a canvas. Loves! I want that piece :)

    Ok, now to the nitty gritty- I have Joined your blog with my google account, Liked and shared on facebook and twitter [just ask me for those two accounts]. Make my day katrina!

  23. So, I have been a Susan Hanover fan for a while now, but have never had the guts to go out and spend the money on a piece of her jewelry. This is such an awesome opportunity, and someone will greatly appreciate this! I completed all of the steps, followed you on twitter, followed her on twitter and facebook, and followed your blog. My email address is: lexicothran@yahoo.com.

    Now, on to the fun stuff: My favorite piece of hers is the crescent necklace. Although she has many different ones, I'm partial to one in particular. Since I am a total sucker for turquoise, I love love love her coral and turquoise on the gold plated crescent necklace. I could picture myself wearing it with everything this spring. I wish, however, that she made a gold crescent necklace with black onyx quartz on it... That, I would have to say, would definitely steal the spotlight from the turquoise necklace, considering you could literally wear it with everything.

    That being said, I am clearly a fan of hers, and I am so happy that you featured her on your website. I have been reading your blog for some time now, and fall more and more in love with it with every new post. Keep it up!

    Xoxo
