GIVEAWAY // Truss & Ore - CLOSED

Tis the season of giving, so today we are partnering with one of our favorite local jewelry makers, Truss & Ore, to bring you something extra special...a giveaway! Truss & Ore is a fine, handcrafted, jewelry company based in Chicago. Owner and designer Ana Brazaityte creates one of a kind pieces using new and repurposed materials, metals, and precious or semi-precious stones. 
"While studying photography at Coloumbia College, I happened upon an Introduction to Metalwork and Jewelry class and fell in love with the physicality and tactile process of creating something with your hands out of raw materials. I have always loved jewelry and enjoy exploring ideas of tension, balance, and symmetry when creating my own pieces."
One very lucky reader will receive a Geometric Brass Pendant Necklace with a Bezel Set Amethyst Stone handmade by Ana in her studio here in Chicago. Check out the details below!

  1. Beautiful jewlrey! Hard to decide a favorite, but I do love the Geometric, Brass Pendant Necklace with Citrine! Also, the Brass Ring with Large Geode! All so lovely.

  2. The geometric brass pendant would be the perfect gift for my mom...she really appreciates eclectic design. She has a pendant collection and this would be a great addition. I love the chain placement.

    1. Congratulations! You're the lucky winner of this gorgeous Geometric Brass Pendant from Truss & Ore. Send us an email at foxtailandmoss[at]gmail[dot]com and we'll get the details! Xx.

  3. I love their work with colored glass--so unique and with just the right amount of color--not ostentatious at all, just speaks for itself!

  4. Everything is so beautiful! I especially love the jade and pyrite bracelet!

  5. It's hard to choose just one, but the jade and aura quartz stone bracelet and all the cuffs are gorgeous. As for who I'd give it to, my friend E has been so supportive of me over the last year, (mentally, emotionally, and financially); her generosity is beyond words. It'd be the least I could do to give her a little token of my gratitude.

  6. Great maker! I love the Hand cut, copper statement necklace, tree bark inspired. It's so unusual and gorgeous! The Jade and aura quartz stone bracelet with brass chain, adjustable length would make a great gift for my friend Emry. She loves simple and unique pieces.

  7. Those cuffs are rad. I'd love to give one to my fiance as a Christmas gift.

  8. Love, Love, Love the Truss & Ore Colored Glass Pendant Necklace... SBetz

  9. The square turquoise ring would be perfect for my sister. She's so unique and elegant, just like this beautiful ring. It's hard to decide though! Kinda in love with all of it!

  10. Geometric, brass pendant necklace with amethyst / citrine stone
