    Julia…you’re back!!! We’ve missed your kumihimo!!
    This is very pretty and delicate but it still makes a bold statement. I like it!!

    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Thank you, darling! We were visiting with our son and his family for about two month :) I sold some of my kumihimo there . They loved it and I promissed to bring more but they wanted about double length, like 30 “…

    Love the dragonfly necklaces. My fav is the silver – it has an ethereal look to it, I think.

  7. AllureofGemsGlamJulia

    Great design Julia!! I love dragonflies too :D I’ve been looking for chain like this, did you buy it from Lima?

  15. Nancy Mc
    Nancy Mc says:

    Oh yes! I love the larger chain too. I was at Lord &Taylor a few days ago,and they were selling a lot of necklaces with the large link chain.

  16. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Thank you, all so very much. Believe it or not …I bought the chain at Michael’s! Were they have their sterling silver and silver plated findings. Tomorrow I will go there and get a couple more. I used the whole length of it, but next time I will get a few links for the earrings ;)
