Zara Taylor Jewelry Giveaway - Closed-

 The lovely Zara Taylor is so kind to offer this beautiful magnifying glass pendant necklace (as worn here by Fearne Cotton herself!) to one of my lucky readers!
 Zara was also kind enough to take some time out to share a lil bit more about herself and her lovely designs in this little interview.

  Tell us a little bit of yourself and how you ended up becoming a  jewelry designer/maker?
I am a mother of two children and after having my second child I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a designer. I did go to the London College of Fashion but dropped out as I was not confident enough with my designs. I decided to make jewellery as I used to love making jewellery when I was a teenager and I think it is important to start a career in something you love doing.


Where do you draw inspirations from for your designs?
My inspiration comes from anything vintage, from old houses to old movies and books. I will get an idea then search everywhere I can to find materials to make that design. Sometimes I will buy vintage beads and gems and keep them for months until I get inspiration to use them in a design. I currently have lots of designs in the making but looking for that missing piece to make it perfect:)


What is your favourite jewelry that you own?
I only wear my own designs and my favourite piece would be my flying  cockroach collection. I have attached my favourite, it is my black winged cockroach with vintage swarovski eyes. I love this piece as it is so unique and eye catching, I like to be different and even though I hate cockroaches I actually love my cockroach pendants. It is like my little pet:)


What future designs/creations would we be able to look forward to from your shop?
I can't really say but I have some big news coming soon. This will  involve a lot of changes but I will announce my exciting news on my facebook page  and twitter as soon as I can:)
