Beaucoup Designs Giveaway

Phyllis Lifestyle 165 Comments

I don’t know a woman alive who doesn’t love beautiful jewelry, and the designs from the lovely Leah Ann Messer are exactly that. I am always looking for great pieces for gifts, and her jewelry is so personal. It’s all in the details.

Beaucoup Designs started when Leah Ann was a young mother making jewelry and selling it at craft shows. She then began to sell at larger shows and eventually opened a retail space, Merci Beaucoup, in the Baton Rouge area. It grew quickly, and Leah Ann decided to take a creative leap of faith and design and produce her first major line of jewelry herself. One day a sales representative came to the store to inquire about the line and wanted to have it in her showroom. Leah Ann gave it a shot, and Beaucoup went from being a small project to a full-scale manufacturing company that makes one-of-a-kind, life-inspired pieces of jewelry for people young and old.


Leah Ann has loved all things vintage and meaningful from the time she was a child, and that passion has carried into her intricate designs that I just love. She says that she sees the value in the story of every special piece and that the line and her own life are all about staying true to the things you hold dear and incorporating them into everyday life. And what better way to display your story and carry what’s precious to you with than with a charm bracelet? Whether it’s in gold or in silver, a bracelet or necklace with charms representing moments in your life is so much fun to collect for yourself or to give as a truly meaningful gift.


As I looked through her collection that features tiny bees, acorns, leaves and wonderful small tokens, I was delighted with the enchanting details. You know my complete love of flowers and vines and all things garden, so I especially love the flower bracelets and necklaces that allow you to choose the flower that corresponds with the month you were born. Do you know what your flower means?

Now that you are in love with Beaucoup, you’ll be delighted to know that they are giving away a cuff bracelet and a necklace in the month of your choice to two lucky winners as a Valentine’s Day celebration.

  1. My birth month, February, can be cold, and bleak. Winning a beautiful piece of jewelry bearing the exquisite and delicate violet would indeed be a bright spot in an otherwise dreary winter. Your designs are elegant and unique.

  2. My granddaughters are graduating this spring. One from college and the other from high school. Both were born in June. I want them to love and cherish beautiful objects all their lives.

  3. Love all her designs! Where can I purchase the bracelets? I would love to own the one for March. My birth month or Sept. My daughters birth month. They are all beautiful!

  4. These pieces are beautiful! I wasn’t aware of my birth month flower until now. Would love to win some of this jewelry. Thanks for the opportunity.

  5. Absolutely lovely jewelry. Fine craftsman ship and I truly admire how she’s built her business. Very clever idea to use birth month flowers…

  6. Stunning! Lovely and divine! I stumbled into your blog today for the first time & what a delight! I’d love to win one of these pieces to add ever more to my beloved charm bracelet that’s been built since I was a child. Of course there is now more than one, created in themes, but my most favourite pieces are on original bracelet – so many favourites! – it now weighs over three pounds. Nothing quite like excess in this area. Thank you to both you and the artist for a chance to win such glorious goodies!

  7. These are so lovely, especially the cuff bracelets! I also like the turquoise beads with the bumblebee. Thanks for sharing this designer.

  8. I have admired Beaucoupdesigns since it first came out in a gift shop near me. I bought a piece as a gift for a friend, but I never bought a piece for myself. You know, us women are like that in thinking that someday we will “splurge” on something “special” for ourselves but it seems to slip by. It reminds me so much of France, where I dream of going one day! I would certainly treasure it for a keepsake and make it a item to pass down to my daughter if I win! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  9. Thank you for sharing this beautiful jewelry! My birth month is February and I love both the flower and gemstone associated with it. These lovely pieces would make wonderful gifts.

  11. How beautiful, her jewelry is so captivating especially the vintage touches. I especially love the designer’s back story. She has truly been blessed with a remarkable talent, and I would love to win a piece of her jewelry because it is designed from the heart.

  12. It would be a pleasure to present this set to my wife for Valentine’s Day. Her birthday is also in February, so this beautiful set would be a fitting remembrance of both.

  15. The jewelry is absolutely beautiful indeed! Since most of our celebrations including my birthday are in April, the Daisy bracelet would be perfect- thank you ever so very much!

  16. I love her designs, and shared it on Facebook. These pieces look more like antique jewelry than most of what we see today. Love the designs and intricate details. My month is January…………….and, I share the same date as someone all the world knows………..Elvis Presley! Best, Dotti

  17. Every piece is awesome! I love my charm bracelet and want to get my granddaughter started on this jewelry, however, the beautiful cuff bracelet would be mine!!!!

  18. I love Leah Ann’s beautiful jewelry!! My birthday month is December, but I would choose November’s flower in memory and honor of my mother, who loved chrysanthemums.

  25. Wow what gorgeous jewelry!! Thank you, Phyllis, for giving those of us who live in the more northern regions an opportunity to win something exquisite from Beaucoup. I particularly love bracelets and think of my jewelry as a legacy of love for my daughter (and sons). They already admire my well loved jewelry and especially love my pieces that are from milestones in our lives and love to hear me tell how these pieces relate to them. I think they would love it if I had a story to tell about a bracelet I had won. What a way to share the love with your readers. You are so generous to us, thank you for the opportunity!
