Near the Willows - Etsy Review and Giveaway


Near the Willows is an Etsy shop run by military wife, Katie. Her shop, featuring handmade jewelry, has been open since November 2008. Proceeds from certain pieces are donated to The Myelin Project, an organization aimed at research focused on demyelinating diseases.



Maybe it's the way her pieces are pictured or the fact that her jewelry is stunning, but I can imagine myself wearing them all. From the Agate necklaces to the wire wrapped earrings, jewelry from Near the Willows can be used to dress up or dress down an outfit.


I received a pair of turquoise wire wrapped earrings from Near the Willows. They arrived in a distinctive box with the shop name on it, tied with a bow. I simply love the look of these earrings. I can wear them any time of the year, but they remind me of spring with the vibrant mix of light blue and silver. I'm very pleased with the overall look and design of these earrings, as well as the presentation they give.



Win It!

One person will win the pair of earrings pictured above (the three pictures together show how they look from different angles).
