    Beautiful colors! The shapes work well together, and the whole piece has an ancient Egyptian “feel”. Well done!

    Yay! :) The friend wore this to an event and got tons of compliments, making me feel so proud! :) It’s a perfect summer piece, although in this weather, I don’t think I’d wear it… (the necklace would probably drown in my sweat!)
