    Thanks,Laud. I am not really a boho kind of girl but I do like the whole genre. It’s fun and very popular. I am more vintage and classical. Just give me a string of knotted pearls :)

    Hi Julie, I did not know that you made them. They are wonderful. I love your stuff! It’s a bracelet bar, but I used it as a pendant. I like the muted colors that you use.
