"Very unique and well-crafted"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love wearing this necklace. Nicely carved, and the pink accents stand out well against the earthy brown/black. Perfect length, no clasps to mess with. I browsed all the African mask pendants and this one is my favorite.

"Great bracelet"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Some of the items by this artist are listed as for men. However, I purchased this bracelet for myself (female), and it is perfect! I have been wearing it with all of my navy outfits. It is so well made and the artist has a unique product that is wonderfully designed.
