"Earthy and modern"

These earrings are great, they are light, earthy and a beautiful abstraction of birds. The wood is very dark so if you have long dark hair they might not be too showy, but with a pony tail they look fantastic. I absolutely love them.

"Beautiful wood carving, earring broke"

I love these earrings. A little larger than I expected but I can adjust. The hook was bent when I opened the package. I tried to straighten it and it broke. I plan to just replace it myself

"A beautiful addition to our collection"

The photo drew my wife and I in. We collect unique Santa s and were looking for an Asian Santa — still an if anyone has a suggestion — when we saw Ali s ‘Father Christmas. We bought it and hoped the piece would be as special as the photo promised . It was. It s a beautiful piece that will remain in our family forever. Love it!
