The winner will also receive a free piece of jewelry from the Amotostyle and Wanderlust Girls collaboration collection. The winner can choose between a silver-plated brass or gold-plated brass cuff bracelet called the AS X WLG Shield Cuff. Description of this piece is as follows:

The shield-inspired cuff was born from the notion of the need for our daily armor as women taking on the world one day and one small step at a time.  Its sleek and sexy vibe communicates a clear confidence of strength and position without sacrificing its femininity.
