I’ve been poking around Etsy a lot lately. In doing so, I stumbled across Dirt Road Metals. Dirt Road Metals is run by Camille and, if you look on her site, you will see she leans towards making Bikram inspired jewelry. Of course I was automatically in love.
Dirt Road Metals is a relatively new business with a strong connection to Bikram Yoga. Camille has been practicing Bikram for 12 years and has taught for 10. She has taught in many studios across the country and has now returned to her home town of Asheville where she lives on the old dirt road.
Before it was paved (hence ‘old’), the dirt road was where teenagers cruised, made friends and explored. Camille grew up on the dirt road and moved away after it was paved. Locals, the true natives, around here refer to the road she lives on as ‘The Old Dirt Road’. She went on to major in jewelry design and metalsmithing in 1992 before traveling the world. Now she has returned to her home town and her art. She lives less than a mile from the house she grew up in and continues to teach Bikram in Asheville and Brevard.
When I first stumbled across Camille’s work, I immediately wanted to buy the Lock Your Knee pendant. But then something else caught my eye – this fabulous barrette:
It says Concrete Unbroken. I had to buy it. Y’all understand not buying it was not an option, right?
But guess what? It is your lucky day. You can have some of this fabulous jewelry too. And trust me, you want it. It’s well made and fun! How fun do you think this barrette is? Unending, super fun.
You now have the chance to win a piece of Bikram-inspired jewelry to call you own. Camille is giving away a Lock Your Knee pendant. Do you want one? Here are the rules:
1. Must live in the continental U.S. to enter (sorry readers outside the U.S.).
2. As before, just type enter into the comments section at the end of this post.
3. You should be entered by noon EST on November 28th.
I’ll do the drawing on Thanksgiving day – sometime in the afternoon – and post the winner on the MBYL facebook page. You will have 48 hours to email me so I can put you in touch with Camille to get your awesome pendant! Good luck.
