[image-1]Last week Garden & Gun announced their roster of Made in the South winners, and ocal jewelry designer Paulina Rodriguez took home the style runner-up award for her line of delicately beaded earrings, Lina Rosawith.

The annual awards, which highlight products in categories like home, food and drink, and style, can be a launching point to bigger things for recipients. 

In an interview with G&G, Rosa says, “I was so obsessed with beading when I was a teenager. I had a beading desk in the living room so I could watch TV while I worked.” Named after her Polish and Puerto Rican grandmothers, the Lina Rosa collection features geometrical shapes and bold colors from small studs to large statement pieces.

Follow Lina Rosa on Facebook to catch upcoming pop-ups and stunning new designs. And hot tip: orders for her earrings, which range from $30-$300 must be placed by Dec. 5 if you want to get them in time for the holidays.
