"An Assumption"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I must confess that I have not actually seen the nativity. It is intended to be a Christmas gift for someone else and it came so beautifully wrapped I decided not to destroy the wrapping by opening the package. But based on the quality of that wrapping and the care that went into it I am comfortable assuming the product itself is well done and lovely.

"Long, Large Pendant"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Nature Goddess, Pendant is not my favorite piece of jewelry from this artist because for this necklace to look good, need a top with the right neckline. The craving of the girl with flowing hair and flower and the amethyst surrounded with silver work is pretty. Personally, I usually do not find female forms on jewelry appealing. However, I do not find the girl design on the pendant offensive or unattractive. Happy with purchase.

"Beautiful Sophistication"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ancient Remnant, bone pendant necklace can be worn with the matching earrings, Gate of Olympus, for a big, bold, sophisticated look, but the outfit needs to be appropriate to carry off a well put together look. Looks good with black or a black/white outfit. The pendant is created with finesse and a touch of femininity. Happy with purchase.

"Sophisticated Even Though Big & Bold"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Gate of Olympus. bone earrings when worn with the right outfit will look unique and sophisticated. The matching necklace, Ancient Remnant, can coordinate with the earrings and look good depending on the outfit. Very attractive worn with black or black/white outfit. Extremely eye catching, big and bold, but created with finesse, a touch of femininity. Happy with purchase.

These are absolutely beautiful. Ive never seen black crescents like these, and as I was born under a new moon, they mean a lot to me. The craftsmanship is incredible as well!

"Pretty Crescent Moon Earrings"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Nice earrings, however, I think the ear wires are flimsy and I m afraid the crescent moon will eventually fall off. Very fast shipping and nicely presented.
