"Love These Simple Earrings!"

This bracelet is beautiful. It is finely detailed, carefully hand-crafted, lightweight & comfortable to wear. I bought it to wear to a beach-side wedding, and its perfect. Thank you for a beautiful and earth-friendly piece!

"Beautiful calabash necklace and bracelet"

These two statement pieces are so well-made. They arrived very quickly and each was packaged in a lovely cloth gift bag with a note to describe the items and the inspiration for the artist. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful jewellery!

"Not practical"

These look really cool but they are hard to wear as they do not hang properly. I think this light weight material is not a good choice for long hair. But they are cute.
