Adorable Etsy Shop. . . Yellow Finch Designs Review and Giveaway!!!

I found another gorgeous jewelry shop on Etsy! Gosh, I love Etsy. . . to think I used to buy jewelry from Claire's. Jewelry from Etsy is amazing!

Yellow Finch Designs makes stunning jewelry! Elizabeth, the creator of the shop, is one talented lady! She has a passion for art, photography, and jewelry. Her pieces are extremely high-quality, and she creates each piece by hand with quality glass beads, swarovski crystals, vintage beads, pearls, semi-precious stones, and sterling silver and gold metal.

She sent me this beautiful Blue Forest Necklace, and I'm so in love with it! It's one of my favorite necklaces now! It's made with amazonite and a wood tear-shaped bead, and on a sterling silver-plated chain. I'm so impressed by the quality of this necklace, and it matches so many outfits. I love wearing it!
I love how she includes a few lines of poetry with many of her listings, to let us know what helped inspire her to create each piece. The lines she included with my Blue Forest necklace are:
"the open wind travels
into the blue forest
through bitter leaves
and golden sun rays"

Creative and stunning!!!

Here are some of my other favorite, inspiring pieces from her shop:

Peacock earrings
"royal feathers touch the sky
with their iridescent glow"

Turquoise Love necklace
"a soft summer breeze
carries my body
across ocean waters
over glistening beaches
to a summer land
of turquoise love"
(ummm. . . wherever that land is, I need to get there!)

A Drop of Green earrings
"beautiful summer day
stand still
beneath my feet
grass curves
a drop of green"

Upon request, she will send your creation in a cute gift box, for no extra charge! I love the gift box mine came in.

She has generously agreed to give away a $25 gift certificate to her shop to one of my readers!!!
