copper + torch feature and giveaway!

Every once in a while, I come across a shop that is so unique and creative, that it makes me just a little giddy. Lately it seems that everyone has some sort of handmade endeavor, and it's become rare to find that perfect balance of unique and relative.

Well, I'm really excited to introduce you to Lindsay today (not me, another Lindsay.) She is the maker behind the business, Copper + Torch. She creates glass + soldered copper hanging terrariums, and necklaces with the tiniest and sweetest details. 

Lindsay sent me a few pieces from her shop recently, and I'll tell you firsthand that her products are incredibly well-made and so gorgeous. I stuck a few baby succulents in my Diamond + Triangle Duo terrarium, and they seem to be pretty happy after a few weeks of hanging around in on our dining room wall. Think of all the fun possibilities --  fresh flowers from the backyard, smooth stones, or even filled with pretty sea-glass would be beautiful! 





Her necklaces are their own kind of special. Tiny bits of lace, and the teeniest feathers you've ever seen are placed between two pieces of glass. Lindsay even did a few custom pieces using heirloom lace as gifts for Mother's Day. So personal and amazingly sweet. I love that idea for preserving a piece of a wedding or baptism gown.

I'm really excited that Lindsay is partnering with me for her first ever giveaway! One winner will receive their choice of one of the items above-- a tiny feather necklace (click that link-- her pictures capture the beauty of this necklace way better than mine!), a lace necklace, OR a small terrarium. 

Enter using the Rafflecopter widget below. Mandatory entry is to comment on this post with your choice (you're not stuck-- just your first thought!) AND tell us about a personal gift that meant a lot to give or get. Additional and optional entries available too!

PS. Keep an eye out for a HelloHue + Copper and Torch collaboration coming soon!

  3. that tiny feather necklace is too cute! but I'm currently obsessed with succulents right now so I would probably get the small terrarium! my grandma gave me a beautiful glass heart charm many years ago. She past away a little over a year ago so I love having something to remind me of her <3

  6. I really love all of Copper & Torch's items---so sweet and creative. I love to make handmade items (bracelets, cards, funny gift cards) for family and friends. My husband always looks forward to getting "Good for 20 minutes back/foot massage" gift card that I'll randomly surprise him with throughout the year.

  17. The feather necklace...so amazing! My sister found a bunch of old wedding photo's of my mom from her first marriage (my siblings father). My mom was 17 at the time and had the best 50's style wedding. My sister made the wedding album into a book for all of us kids. It was a cool look into part of our mom's life we didn't really ever get to see & she passed away 20 years ago so it was cool.

  20. Oh, the lace, I would definitely get my wedding veil lace, since it was made from my grandma's wedding dress!

  22. I would choose the teeny feather necklace. I recently got a pair of shoes as a gift - I know, not very exciting, but I was THRILLED! Finally, a pair of shoes I love, and as a gift! Woo!

  24. I love the little feather necklace but I think that the terrarium would look gorgeous on my office wall with a little plant to spruce up my workplace. I commissioned an artist who worked at my college to paint a picture of our dog for my Mom's 50th birthday! It was definitely a hit!

  25. I think I'd choose the feather neckalce, so cute! For mother's day, I got my mom a pair of sandals she has been dying to have along with a day at the spa! She was beyond happy!

  29. The feather necklace is so unique! I love it!
    & I was recently gifted several pairs of no show socks. It may seem like it's not much of a gift but I needed them badly for my flats so I'm very grateful!

  34. I love the necklaces, but I am obsessed with little terrariums lately so I think I would choose that. Nothing tops my mothers ring as a gift, we had suffered a horrible tragedy that year. My husband got our son and our daughters stones and a diamond for the future.

  41. The Diamond + Triangle Duo terrarium is so neat - I love it! There are many different options but I like the succulent idea best. I received a unique elephant pot once. Ia hole in the bottom and still have it. There is oregano growing out of it now. I love plants and garden frequently so things like that are great.

  42. LOVE the terrarium. Just bought a house and would love to hang it up! :)
