monday giveaway: jacaranda designs

Today's giveaway is from the Etsy shop, Jacaranda Designs, which carries vintage inspired jewelry to add a bit of whimsy to your wardrobe. There are necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and even cute hairpins to add a little spunk to your average ponytail.

Jane, the shop owner, says, "My name is Jane and I'm the owner and creator of Jacaranda Designs Jewelry. I embarked on jewelry making 6 years ago after quitting the IT industry that I had been part of for 18 years. I signed up for a jewelry making class at a local college. I took lessons for about three years, became hooked immediately and it is now my passion. I have a studio in my home and spend many hours in there, creating.

Besides a passion for creating all things colorful and pretty, I am a volunteer IT tutor for seniors at our local library, I love creme caramel, Cuban music, Adele, the Sarah Bernhardt peonies in my front garden, Merlin TV series, historical fiction, have a HUGE collection of cookbooks, can't make macaroons to save my life, have a penchant for photographing flowers, addicted to Instagram, am a hockey mom, member of a book club, dream of one day owning a beach house, go camping only under duress AND most importantly, I cannot start a day without a piping hot, really strong cup of tea.

I am often asked why I named my shop Jacaranda Designs. The name was inspired by the gorgeous Jacaranda tree. In the suburb where we lived in Johannesburg, South Africa, our street was lined with Jacaranda trees. The tree has a beautiful purple five lobed flower and when in bloom was simply spectacular. It evokes many happy childhood memories."


The item for the giveaway will be a crackled egg bird nest necklace. This whimsical, rustic little brass bird nest necklace is made from wrapped antique brass colored wire. Nestled inside are three robin's eggs made from crackled turquoise colored beads. The nest hangs from a brass chain.
