**Update: Congratulations to the winner of this Marla bracelet giveaway, Megan Neubauer! (Megan: Be on the lookout for an email from me with details.) Thanks so much to everyone who entered this contest!**
I am always in awe of my friends’ many talents. I know people who make amazing things out of wood, who have started awesome parenting websites, and who design captivating narrative-inspired wallpaper.
And a college friend of mine, Kate Morris, is another one of those inspiring and talented folks. Her craft? Making stunning jewelry. Kate and I met through our sorority in college (shout-out to the ZTAs out there!), and now she’s a Pure Barre instructor (like me!) in Birmingham, Alabama, in addition to being a middle school Spanish teacher and crafter of lovely jewelry.
Kate has been making jewelry since she was young, honing her skills through the years and using her craft to fund summer mission trips to South America starting in high school. In fact, to acknowledge her love for South American culture, Kate names all her pieces in Spanish. She also donates 10% of her profits to the International Mission Board. Her dream is to eventually use KMJ to somehow be heavily involved in an orphanage/school in South America.
After selling on Etsy for a few years, she founded Kate Morris Jewelry in 2015 and began selling her wares via her current website.
I love every single piece Kate designs, and they adhere to a style Kate calls “elegant bohemian.” (I’d have to agree with that description.) “You could wear most of my pieces to a formal event, or you could wear them with a T-shirt,” she explains.
Some of my top picks on Kate’s site right now include the Canela necklace, the Villa necklace, and the Naturastack bracelet.
And, lucky for you folks, Kate is offering 15% off to Curiouser & Curiouser readers when you use the promo code “curiouser” at checkout. (This discount is valid on TOP of many already discounted prices on the site right now thanks to a great sale, so be sure to shop now!)
For one SUPER lucky reader, Kate is giving away one of her beautiful Marla bracelets!:
(I have one of my own and am so very obsessed with this piece.) To enter to win, simply follow Kate Morris Jewelry on Instagram. That’s it! (Please also leave a comment on this post letting me know you’ve followed KMJ.)
The giveaway winner will be announced Monday, July 11, so please be sure to enter (a.k.a. follow KMJ on Insta) by Sunday, July 10!
Happy jewelry shopping, y’all!
