"Still beautiful"

The color was not the same as the online picture, the outer border is yellow, not the golden color pictured. I still like it but the contrast is too stark.

Just what my granddaughter is into. This is part of her African heritage. To be able to find something made at “home” is a treasure.

This set of colorful wood beaded earrings is lovely. Very light to wear with vibrant colors. Had purchased for myself, but I love this pair of earrings so much that I just have to gift them to a dear friend.
