"What does Edinam mean? I need to know."
These earrings are a little large for me to wear, but I wouldn't think of sending them back to Novica. These are beautiful, Rita, and to me you have used good balance. The hanging beads contrast so nicely with the round beads. I do have a dress that these earrings match nicely, and I have worn them even if a little long. I think you paired these beads very nicely, Rita. Will be looking to buy from you in the future. Keep up the good work.
