Hi, I am still waiting for it to arrive. I have heard there has been some issues with AusPost and Covid disruptions
Beautiful earrings, the colours go with a range of my pastel and denim clothing. The first time I wore them I had 2 people complement me and ask where they’re from! First time in a long time someone noticed a piece of jewellery that was unique on me.
Beautiful earrings, look really good with many outfits
Very beautiful well made earrings
Beautiful colours, deadly design and comfortable to wear.
