"love this necklace"

this necklace was very good quality and good colors - the only reason i gave 4 stars was that i wish the bone bead was smaller - more in line with the size of the other beads

As soon as this piece arrived my wife put it on and we both loved it. Simple yet bright, original yet not showy. Thank you so much to Ila for making such a special necklace!

"Beautiful bracelet"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered Annula in Sea Green, which is a teal color. Like another reviewer, I apparently received Annula in Green, which is an emerald/forest green. Its lovely, too, and fortunately I can wear it with something else. But I wanted the Sea Green (teal) for a particular outfit, and it would be good if you sent buyers what they ordered.
