Our Story

Willow + Mae is a small family owned and operated business based in Middle Tennessee. As parents of six amazing children, my husband and I love having careers that allow us to spend most of our time with our family. He’s our fabulous website and graphic designer and I’m the product designer and all-around administrator.

Named for our maternal grandmothers, Willow + Mae is dear to our hearts. Even our first collections were named after our children and reflect their unique personalities. Our necklaces allow you to love your baby by giving them something unique to play with, grasp, and chew while you’re holding or wearing them close. They also are a great opportunity to love yourself by choosing a style and color that is uniquely you. As a mom, it’s easy to fall into a fashion rut. Willow + Mae teething jewelry is the perfect addition to any wardrobe, dressy or casual. Whatever your style, we have something to meet your needs.

Thanks for your business!

Willow + Mae Gives Back

On May 13, 2015 as we were moving into a new house, our youngest daughter was hit in the head by a falling appliance dolly and had to be rushed by helicopter to the emergency room at Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga. There we were told she had suffered a skull fracture and a traumatic brain injury. She was in critical care in the pediatric ICU for three weeks followed by seven weeks of recovery and rehab. While she was in the ICU, we stayed at the Ronald McDonald House across the street from the hospital. The staff and volunteers there were amazing and helped us get through the most difficult thing either of us had ever experienced.

To honor those amazing people and give back to those who gave so much to us, we created a new necklace, the Sunset Miracle. The colors of the necklace are inspired by the Ronald McDonald House and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this necklace will go directly to them to support their mission to provide a home away from home for families who have a child in critical care in the hospital. Additionally, we have donated a box of these necklaces to the Ronald McDonald House in Chattanooga to give to the mothers who stay there with them. We hope that in some small way we can help others who have to go through what we experienced and share the hope that our little “Miracle” has brought to us.
