12 Days of Indie Holiday Shopping 2008: Imogene

Today’s 12 Days of Indie Holiday Shopping’ featured shop is  Imogene.

Annie Chau is the designer behind Imogene, which is a very lovely line of jewelry. Annie is really a superb metalsmith and is definitely one of my favorites.  In fact, one of my most prized possessions  (until I lost it) was my fox necklace from Imogene.

In a world that one can very clearly say is over-saturated with jewelry designers, Annie’s designs really stand out. Just when you think you have her work pegged, she comes up with something new, but that something new is stamped with the je ne sais quoi of the Imogene line.

Gift suggestions from Imogene include: the Holiday Collection, the whale hoops & this adorable Bunny Necklace. You can shop via the Imogene website and at the Imogene Etsy shop.  I suggest you visit both as there’s different stuff both places.

Plus, use the code HANDMADE2008 for 15% off your order. If using Etsy just type it in the “notes to seller” for a refund, and if you shop via the Imogene webstore, then type it at checkout for an immediate discount. The code expires December 5th.

Before you head off shopping though, make sure to enter to win a Carrot and  a Hare necklace from Imogene.

To win: Leave a comment on this post with your favorite Imogene designs.  Multiple entries will be accepted, but you must leave a separate comment for each entry. This will increase your chances for winning!

I will choose one random commenter to win the prize. This contest will end Wednesday, December 4th at 6pm EST.

THE ENTRY PERIOD FOR THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED! Stay tuned for the winner. Click here to enter the current ‘12 Days of Indie Holiday Shopping’ Contest.

    Dark Ferns really stands out for the amazing hand-formed chain- I wish I knew how to do work like that. Heck, I wish I knew how to work with metal at all. I’ve never quite grasped how to get started on that one.

    The french lesson earrings too are fantastic; playfully romantic. Tis the best kind of romance, if you ask me.

    I’m quite a fan of the “at sea” necklace. It’s hard to describe what’s so evocative about it; the frame gives it a quaint, almost antique sense and recalls the stylings of the days of whaling. The whale, however, is happily swimming out of said frame, unharmed and whimsical.

    I love all of the whale items, particularly the At Sea necklace. I admit to admiring it for some time now.
