A Taste of Victoriana & Nature
Simply Willow is an Etsy site that showcases the talents of self-described “hippy” jewelry maker Willow (Jodi) Cartwright. Her eco-friendly jewelry line out of Allegan, Michigan draws material exclusively from recycled and vintage materials.
Her merchandise includes pendant necklaces, charm necklaces, and earrings, and her design categories include Victorian jewelry, Steampunk Jewelry, and Nature-inspired Jewelry. The steampunk pieces are appropriate for those looking for Victorian-influenced designs with very modern and almost industrial touches. The Victorian pieces exhibit a more period-centered, authentic look. The nature-inspired category is for bumblebee lovers, with many featuring gorgeous, multi-colored opals.
Cartwright’s jewelry proves to be unique, ornate, and aesthetically rich, nodding to her interest in spirituality and Mother Earth. It's also trendy; I've seen similar (though mass-produced and eco-unfriendly) pieces at Urban Outfitters.
Consider Simply Willow next time you’re in need of a jewelry fix or birthday present. Support the independent artisan and green movements, and look stunning as a consequence!
