Opulence Necklace- Two new kits available

Opulence necklaces

One of my favourite necklaces is the Opulence design, so I have made several for myself in different colours to match different outfits. I have recently made myself a version in a dark lilac colour, as well as a red version. When I show my work on Facebook or elsewhere I am often asked if […]

Back by popular demand – cat button bracelet
