Featured Reviews on Soapstone Jewelry from West Africa
Unique , very artistic
I love the combination of colors and shapes. I have lots of earrings but none like these which get many compliments for their uniqueness. The craftsmanship is excellent.
These earrings can be seen when you wear them. The pink cats eye beads are beautiful . The picture doesnt really do them justice. These earrings are different than any others I have. If you want some pretty earrings that are unique then these are for you!
Lovely but long
These earing are lovely. If you are into stones, as I am, you will enjoy these. One warning for people who don't like long earrings. As much as I like them they are a little out of my comfort zone.
