    I love the set! The necklace lays perfectly. it is a wonderful color and design. I enjoy picking the fresh picks! I get a chance to use my inagination , learn and get inspired from others. I also get ideas from the designs, but I can say that I haven’t used either for any designs yet. I don’t know what I am waiting for.
