    Helen G aka tea chick says:

    ooooooooh, I LOVE this! The richness and warmth of the pearls and copper is gorgeous! I used to be a silver-only girl (in part because my wedding ring is platinum and I was always too “A-R” to mix metals- how silly!), but I’m really starting to love copper. When I make something with it or see beautiful pieces like this I think, “Copper- where have you been all my life?” :)

    Jewelry by Shannon says:

    I REALLY like this … what a beautiful multi-stranded necklace and earring set.

    and I like copper too tho’ some of my clients don’t either. It is very warm and beautiful! And looks great mixed with green, purple, well lots of colors. SLS
