sponsor love: interview + GIVEAWAY with Aime of Sense and Sensibility!!!


today's sponsor could not be any sweeter and her pieces could not be more perfect for spring. her stackable bracelets and delicate necklaces are my personal favorites. i also love her talented eye for delicate colors. and with wedding season just around the corner, you certainly want to check out her bridal collection. this lovely lady also has a big heart as some of her pieces were made specifically to help out a friend (be sure to check out her shop for more deets!).
meet aime.


what is your favorite way to celebrate springtime? 

Right now, it has got to be eating outside!  With the weather starting to get warmer, we have been starting to give the barbeque some exercise.  It's hard to resist sitting outside when the evenings are as mild as some of ours have been.  That and getting to eat lots of great seasonal fruit.  There are a lot of strawberry fields around where I live and that has definitely been a treat. I'm making myself hungry now.  =)
   
what is the last song you heard on the radio or on your ipod?

I honestly have a short memory when it comes to music I just heard (I tend to listen to the same music over and over again anyway) but a couple of songs that I'm loving right now are Florence and the Machine, "Dog Days are Over", and Foster the People, "Pumped Up Kicks".  

where do you find your inspiration for your shop and your blog?

I find inspiration in a lot of different places.  Sometimes I might be just browsing through Etsy or walking through a store like Anthropologie (my dream is that my jewelry would be carried by them) or even just staring out of the window at the world around me.  And then I try and mold my ideas into something that would actually work as a product in the real world.  Right now, I'm really fascinated by mixing textures like soft and hard or shiny and dull.  You all get to see some of my creations towards that end today.  


loving all the dainty jewelry that i'm seeing hit spring fashion.
