    Oh how I love your work!! I love me some vintage glamour. I’m not sure I can include everything I like here, there are too many.. glad I found your website! I want everything.. sigh.

    My fave earrings:

    The Arabella- a great mix of old and new

    The Norma- could wear out on the town or to work

    My fave necklaces:

    The Uma- a work of art. Nuff’ said.

    The Cruz in cabernet – SO pretty, would be great to wear out with the girls or dancing

    My fave bracelets:

    The Eloise- This is a really creative design, I’ve never seen another bracelet like it. Beautiful.

    Thanks for the chance, and keep making beautiful things!
