To go along with yesterday's giveaway from Upper Metal Class, I thought it only appropriate to give you an up-close-and-personal peek inside the creative process of its owner. T. makes her everyday pieces in her Los Angeles shop, and as she says, "The jewelry line was developed upon simple designs." Read on for her awesome shopping tips and the story behind her favorite item in her shop! xoxo

I love dressing up, but in my everyday life, I like to be comfortable with the classic t-shirt and jeans. I started making jewelry for that fact of being able to have beautiful pieces that would easily transition from a day to evening look. They're subtle, yet they make a beautiful statement of less is more.
What are some ways that people can still look chic for less?
For someone like me, I don't have a lot of time to do actual shopping; plus, I hate the crowds. So the best thing for me is online shopping. These sites have great fashion for less than what I would want to pay: NastyGal, ModCloth and ASOS.
My favorite piece in my shop right now is the Sunset Rocks Earrings. They're made to look sort of like a diamond with facets. I love how they glisten as the light hits each angle.
