"Nothing special"

The sculpture give no particular feeling, and the base is too small.

"Attention Getters"

These earrings are so unique. You never see anything like them in stores. They are quite large but lightweight and very comfortable! I also have the same style in the rainbow colors. I wear them all the time and consistently receive compliments.

I am so pleased with the mask and pleasantly surprised at all the colours I couldnt see in the pictures here. Ritas workmanship is exceptional and I am so happy to have two of her pieces. You will not be disappointed. (Yayra on the left, Fafa on the right)
