Ansonia Giveaway Day!

 
Ansonia is Denyse Schmidt's
 latest celebration of color.
"The grand, old-world glamour of a graceful waltz meets the wild bohemian charm of the tango.  Operatic hot pinks mix with earthy taupes and deep chocolate brown (Mushroom), and psychedelic-acid citron greens whirl with lush, bold blues (Mossy)."
 
 
Denyse talks about her inspiration for
designing the line here.
  
 
 
 We have a variety of precuts
 in the shop.
 
 
 
 
This is the mossy colorway.
 
And this is the mushroom colorway. 
 
Also coming out in April is
a collection of 75 solids
 handpicked by Denyse.
 
 
It retails for $198.
If you would like to pre-order one for $175,
please contact me very soon.
 
 
 
Our giveaway today is an Ansonia
5" charm pack.
 
Update:  Congrats to Vicki H,
you are the winner tonight!
