"Excellent piece"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this together with another African mask which I also did a review for. They hang on either side of the fireplace in our house. They are both very distinctive and make excellent decorative pieces but have that feel of handmade items. A lot of guests to our house comment on them.

"Glimmery and lovely"

Coordinate with a leopard outfit I have. These earrings top it off to perfection. I m a “bigger” gal and they don t get lost in my hair: they are so feminine and beautiful. Well made and lightweight. They are comfortable to wear.
