The bracelet is beautiful, and the seller is amazing to work with! She obviously takes pride in her work, and it's clear that customer satisfaction is important to her. Very generous and friendly seller. I will be highly recommending this shop to all of my friends! I look forward to wearing this bracelet all the time- it's so comfortable I'll never have to take it off!

Finding the Bright Side

Near the Willows jewelry started as a bright side to a sour event. I was working as a graphic designer at a local newspaper when major layoffs were sweeping the country in 2008. I was one of the casualties. I was in a bit of a panic because my husband and I had already dove heart first into the financially draining, adoption process. Additionally we had a military transfer months away, so I needed something fast and ideally, portable. November 27, 2008 Near the Willows was created. Now five years, two adoptions, and three military transfers later, Near the Willows is still a nice, bright part of my life.

    My portrait is a bit chaotic, but it is a pretty good representation for my life. By day I am a jungle gym, by night I am a small business owner. I earned my BFA from UMASS Dartmouth in Children's Book Illustration. My joy is to always be creating.

Welcome to Near the Willows! I started my etsy shop with a passion for jewelry designing, and a desire to have a home business. I wanted to spend time my two kiddos, and also be portable. A must with a husband in the USCG.
I also want to give back. I am currently donating to the Myelin Project.
Thank you for your interest and support!

Quick payments are helpful in getting your package out to you asap. :)
I strive for prompt service. I try to get your package, out the very next day. (Working around Sundays when the PO is closed.) Shipping in the states takes 3-5 business days. Shipping to other countries is hard to estimate due to customs. It seems to be around two weeks.

All purchases will be in a Near the Willows gift box, tied with a ribbon and shipped securely in a padded bubble mailer.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase. If for some reason you are not, please convo me and we can resolve the problem.
