Wonderfully Carved Pendant
This is a distinctive, unusual necklace that I hang as a piece of art when Im not wearing it. Pricing is very reasonable for something that can upgrade both your wardrobe and your home!
What a knock out!
The colors are beautiful together. The necklace holds its shape well when you wear it. It is unusual and attractive.
