Beautiful Beaded Bracelet
Tiny beads, meticulously assembled. My wife loved it and has actually chose to wear it as a pendant and it looks great.
Well loved gift
I bought this for my niece who loves indigenous cultures, rabbits and Pink Floyd. Well made and we both are delighted. Thinking about buying one for myself.
The earrings are described on Novica as ethereal, and they truly are. In person, they are way more beautiful than on the website, and I cant wait to wear them. This particular artist is very talented!
