A few of my designs have left the building. I'm happy that they have found new homes, a few I will miss and will be creating another similar design.

Carnelian Gemstone Agate Bracelet will mail to Rachel tomorrow.

Amethyst Wire Beaded Kippah will mail to Lori tomorrow

Turquoise Gold and Silver Wire Wrapped Orbit Necklace went to Sarah

Gold and Clear Swarovski crystal wire beaded kippah went to Natalie

Green rice pearls and malachite gemstone wire beaded kippah went to Reva

Shana's mom will receive a beautiful Mother's Day card and earrings.

I'm so grateful for my new clients and hope my new designs will bring you back for more affordable jewelry.
