Meet a New Designer! Jewelry By Margaret - Giveaway & Discount!

Happy Monday, Shopaholics! Hope you had a great weekend! It turned cold around these parts on Sunday - I'm freezing to death! We don't get 30 degrees very often here at the beach and I can't say I'm enjoying it!

Today I am excited to introduce you to a jewelry designer I recently discovered - Jewelry by Margaret. This new Etsy shop (link HERE) is the creation of my friend Margaret in Florida. Jewelry by Margaret specializes in custom handmade jewelry - perfect for gifts, bridal parties or everyday wear.

When Margaret offered to send me a few samples to review for you, I was more than happy to accomodate! Below are the two pieces that are now a part of my jewelry wardrobe. Warning - you're going to want them too! :-)

Strawberry Gold Wrapped Drops, $23 (link HERE).

Emerald Gold Wrapped Drops, $23 (link HERE)

Of course, Margaret knew all about my obsession with all things Lilly Pulitzer - which I suspect lead her to send me pink and green earrings! When I received these last week, I immediately put the green ones on and wore them the rest of the day! Never mind that we were working on our remodel. DH can vouch for me, haha. They are so comfortable - they way the earrings hook, you actually forget you're wearing jewelry! I had my hair pulled up and they really look fantastic, even with a tee shirt and jeans. This particular style comes in other colors in addition to the strawberry and emerald featured above - amethyst, seafoam, and smoky gold in a beautiful square shape.

Another pair of my favorite earrings from Jewelry by Margaret - these I plan to order very soon and add them to my jewelry wardrobe!

Lime and Ocean Triple Brio Bent Drops, $28 (link HERE)

More fun facts about Jewelry by Margaret:

*All items are shipped USPS Priority Mail so they arrive quickly. 
*Everything looks like a present when it arrives. The jewelry is presented in tissue paper, in a jewelry box ready for gift giving, earrings are on a "card" so they don't get twisted up in the package and are in their own jewelry "bag", and the box is fastened with a signature green bow. 
*Margaret is happy to include a gift note with the package, upon request. Just message her through Etsy with specific instructions when your order is placed. 
*Last but not least - there is not one piece of jewelry in the Etsy shop (link HERE) that is priced over $50.

Now - how about some great news? In order to help us get that pesky holiday shopping finished, Jewelry by Margaret is offering Shopaholic In Alabama readers a 10% discount on our purchases. Be sure to use code "SHOPAHOLIC" during the Etsy checkout process to receive your 10% off. A Big YEAH for the Shopaholic Special discount, especially when you consider the retail price of Margaret's jewelry is so affordable. I plan to take advantage of it and hope you will too!

In addition to that generous discount, Jewelry by Margaret is also offering a GIVEAWAY - exclusively to Shopaholic In Alabama readers! One lucky reader will win a $25 gift card that can be used on any item, or combination of items, in the Etsy shop. Here is how you can enter to win:
