About this design:

Just a simple strand necklace and earrings. I decided to wear a different skirt with my yellow sweater set for Easter at the last minute and made this set at 11:30 PM Sat. night! Oh well, changing her mind is a woman's perogative!


Swirly glass ovals in beige, tans and browns and faceted crystal rounds in brown with gold beadcaps and spacers.
