"Love These Simple Earrings!"

I love that these have a little weight to them, so they do not swing too much, but also arent too heavy. The matte finish of the glass beads makes them subtle. A favorite of mine!

This bracelet is beautiful. It is finely detailed, carefully hand-crafted, lightweight & comfortable to wear. I bought it to wear to a beach-side wedding, and its perfect. Thank you for a beautiful and earth-friendly piece!

"Not practical"

These look really cool but they are hard to wear as they do not hang properly. I think this light weight material is not a good choice for long hair. But they are cute.
