A Shazoey Giveaway

. 23 September 2013 .

Corrupting Miffy is partnering with SHAZOEY for its first giveaway, 
and I had the chance to speak to the maker behind the golden magic, Sharon.

(This giveaway is now closed.)

You all know by now that I'm a big jewellery fan (see here, here and here if you need convincing). So  when I first saw Sharon's online store, SHAZOEY, I was in jewellery heaven. Finally, my search for affordable, fine statement jewellery has ended. I had such a hard task choosing but ended up with these three pieces that looked even more amazing when they arrived in my mailbox. What's even better is that each piece is stunningly designed and handmade by Sharon herself (and you know how much I dig that)!

I must say that Corrupting Miffy x SHAZOEY is such a dream collaboration for me - never would I have thought that my first blog collaboration would be with someone whose creative passion is so similar to my own (and also because she's a perfectionist...I can definitely identify with that)! Sharon creates "modern & minimalist everyday jewellery, using the highest-quality materials to create luxe, statement gemstone pieces". She already had me at "modern & minimalist", but it was even sweeter to find out that the name SHAZOEY is in fact a couple nickname for Sharon and her hubby, Joey, who she describes as "the backbone to my business" and whose "wisdom is beyond his years". I'm really in awe of someone who infuses love into everything they do!

Read on to give yourself the chance to win a SHAZOEY gift voucher, and to learn more about Sharon and her online store.

Shazoey Interview

What is your jewellery about?

I have this soft spot for handmade/handcrafted. There is that real person that you get to know (through online conversations) & a unique story behind each piece that they make - it is not mass-produced in a factory somewhere across the world. The time put into the design and the skills used to create & fabricate makes it one of a kind, it bears the unique character of the maker.

Because of this, I decided from the very beginning that all my jewellery be designed & handcrafted by me. I am sort of a perfectionist, so I would never send a piece that I’m not happy with, away to the customer - they are all pieces that I would want to wear! 

You’d see that there are many bohemian designs made using gemstones (think Samantha Wills), but I found little or close-to-none with a modern/minimalistic edge - jewellery that I wanted to wear! 

And so I came up with my own designs for jewellery that suited my wardrobe - modern & minimal, timeless design over fleeting trends. Then mix in my penchant for raw & rough semi-precious gemstones, and there you have it - everyday, luxe, statement gemstone pieces made out of sterling silver, gold-filled, gold vermeil & gold-plated metals.

  2. I would buy Emilie because it reminds me when I was a kid and would go to the Gemstone Fair in my suburb and do Thunderstone lucky dips where we picked out a stone and have an oldie cut it to find if we chose the one with the crystal encrusted center!

  3. I'd definitely buy the Gold Feather Bracelet. The feather motif is one that I hold close to heart. So close, in fact, that I've considered having it tattooed on my body. My aversion to needles and desire to keep my skin clean (for now) have meant that I haven't anything to keep this symbol on me. This bracelet would be perfect, especially for when those times are tough. It also means I don't have to endure the pain of tattooing. I love the fact that it will be hand crafted so that it will be unique and no two feathers will be the same!

  4. Absolutely love all these fine pieces! What a tough decision. My favourite piece is the Mini Wishbone necklace. I'm a sucker for dainty gold necklaces and would love to layer it with my other gold pieces. I also think it's a subtle reminder to never give up on your hopes and dreams!

    Of course this is going to be a hard choice.. but I think that if I won, I would have to pick the Mini Wishbone necklace in gold... I am in love with wishbones, I love their meaning, and how delicate they are! Of course if I had the money, I would probably own all of the gemstone necklaces in their store ;) Plus the gold dipped coral is gorgeous.

  14. I would love the Disc Tag Necklace in Rose Gold, love its simplicity as well as the texture which reminds me of beachside landscapes with rocky shores. Also love the hand-hammering technique, I can just imagine its maker carefully shaping the disc just looking at that beautiful detail.

    Thank you so much for this giveaway! In love with Shazoey already!
    I would go for the 'Alexa' Black Spinel Bracelet for sure. Why? Because I'm a fan of petite, gold arm candy and I feel like this would match perfectly with my current stack collection. It's unique, but black goes with everything!

    My fave item is the mini Wishbone necklace in gold, because it's so perfect. I am a big fan of details and also believe in the fate of that necklace. Do not ever take it off because I know I'll get lucky with the necklace. It is so delicate and beautiful and gold being favored with all the clothes and all the accessories. It's perfect for my wedding, because I want to wear something different, I want everything to be so elegant. That necklace gives another sense. I need it because it will be something special to take the best day of my life.

  32. I love the chain ring but considering my current pregnant sausage fingers I'd go for my other favorite, the 'EMILIE' Black Agate Druzy Pendant Necklace because I've always been a geode loving science fashion addict and this piece just fits my taste perfectly. So delicate and beautiful looking too.

  36. Skye Amazonite Gold Bracelet. The colour is my favourite colour in the whole world. I also have very dainty wrists, and the fine detail on this would look so pretty. Not chunky and bulky like a lot of other bracelets can look on me.

  49. Hi Tiffany! It's Feiya here :)
    I've been drooling over SHAZOEY's Gold Feather Bracelet and SKYE Amazonite Gold Bracelet because they are the perfect combination of two of my long-time loves - shiny things and pastels! I love the refreshing aqua-green hue of the amazonite, these bracelets are great for adding a unique touch to an ordinary/drab outfit (I am the shameful owner of too many), not to mention how amazing they are layered!

The combination of the boldness of the gems with the fineness of the gold is a match made in heaven. Simply beautiful designs Sharon xx

  51. Picking one piece out of Shazoey's collection was hard, there's so many that are beautiful and varied in their shape and colouring. I especially love the geometry and texture of the Charlize Citrine Pendant Necklace. The delicate chain allows the raw amber beauty of the stone to really shine through.

  53. I am blessed to say I knew Sharon since we were both tiny little girls with big dreams and creative minds and it is fantastic to see that creativeness put to work here!

    What i love most about this whole collection is that it encompasses Sharon and her delicacy and attention to detail she has always shown to everything she does. the collection is so beautiful because it is pure and honest. If I were to choose only one piece it would have to be the Emilie Black Agate Druzy Pendant necklace as its imperfections and slight variations express personality and make each piece one of a kind. That to me is a treasure.

  54. Michelle Yeong10/23/2013 2:00 pm

    Hi, my name is Michelle and the item I would definitely buy is the Jade Coin Necklace. I chose this item because it is a beautiful yet simple design and gives a sense of class that is very ladylike. It is a piece that is very versatile whether I'm going out for a summer lunch date, a cocktail party or a night out with friends. The colour of Jade also brings out the brown in my eyes. I feel a strong connection with the Jade Coin necklace because it reflects me as a person, as someone who looks simple on the outside, but if you look closer, there's a special piece of treasure to be found. :)

    Thank you Tiff and Sharon for sharing Shazoey with the rest of us. <3

  55. It's so hard to pick one favourite item! My favs would have to be either the sideways cross bracelet or hammered disc tag short necklace in rose gold. I love how SHAZOEY items are so simple yet full of character at the same time! My names Rita email rita.tse@gmail.com Instagram @ritaat

  56. Hi I'm Vincy and I am acquainted with Sharon from Shazoey via mutual friends and have her on facebook, and I absolutely ADORE her work of ART!
    I am so inspired that she would start her own jewellery store with such unique and delicate pieces! I have trouble choosing which one to get as they all look so stunning! I think I would choose something delicate as those are hard to find, if there are any sideways cross necklaces or bracelets or if those have run out I wouldn't mind if Sharon herself chooses something special for me :)
    I would LOVE to have Sharon design or giveaway a Shazoey Piece for me and I would instagram it with joy! :D
