NearTheWillows Jewelry Necklace Review & #Giveaway

As a woman, I should have my pick of jewelry, whether expensive or budget friendly. However, I do not have much jewelry at all. At present, I own two necklaces, one ring and one pair of earrings.  I guess you can tell I'm not a socialite eh?

I'm adding to my meager collection with a lovely necklace from NearTheWillows. The Blue Sodalite Necklace is really beautiful.

I love the color and if I wish, I could wear it long instead of double stacked. I love the attention to detail and versatility in what clothing I can pair it with. The only want I have right now is to have it in red :)
My daughter also love this necklace and it fits her nicely. I think I'll share with her.
 

Katie has some gorgeous jewelry at her etsy shop. You have to visit NearTheWillows and see how beautifully creative she is!  I absolutely love her designs!

One of the favorite is the Something Blue necklace. $146
This necklace is breathtaking. The blues of the Apatite and Kyanite are beautiful and natural, these stones are not dyed. Each stone is wire wrapped in sterling silver, and directly linked to the next bead ensuring durability while wearing. A sterling silver toggle clasp finishes off the necklace which measures 18 1/2 inches.

The matching earrings come with the necklace. They are made with sterling silver wire wrapped apatite on a sterling ear wire. 1 1/4 inches.

(The largest beads, the oval kyanite ones, measure 1/2 inch in length,)

Apatite is said to enhance intellect, focus, learning, concentration and ideas. It promotes unconditional love.

Kyanite is a calming stone.  It helps to quiet the mind and let go of anxiety.

This item comes in a gift box, ready to go!
 Look at some of her other unique, colorful and delightful pieces!
My name is Katie, I am a military wife, with a few transfers under my belt. This is why I wanted to be able to work from home - and have a job I could "take with me" whenever we moved. I am a graphic and web designer as well as jewelry designer. We have a son who came into our lives almost 2 years ago at the age of 2 weeks old. He makes every day that I get to stay at home with him worth it - no matter how late I have to stay up at night in return!

Another great thing about Katie's designs are that, proceeds from some of her pieces are donated to the Myelin Project. 
The Myelin Project was established in 1989 with the aim of funding research to find a cure for demyyelinating diseases, such as leukodystropies which are genetic and multiple sclerosis which is acquired. You can find out more at www.myelin.org
