    So pretty. They are indeed rustic,but glamourous,at the same time. Something beautiful abut the combination of copper and that shade of blue. I love your organic wraps. Admire the way you’re able to wrap them directly to the connector. I have a huge problem with that. ;)

    Very clever use of patina and pearls together – not a usual combination and works great here. Very cool, Miannada!
