  1. Love the bracelet!
  2. Silver is a soft metal, so it would actually take more work to make filigree out of base metal. So yes, Its probably silver :-)
  3. Oh wow, you did really well! I trie to put the baby in a carrying bag when walking in flea markets...easier to maneuver...a bit difficult to bend over though... Old people are the worst! I have been p...
  4. Beautiful ollection!
  5. Love these val! They are worth every penny you paid for them! I will be posting a bit less jewelry in the coming months....just had a big expence, so money s to tight to mention ;-)

  25. Love it, nice work!
  26. Yes, why would they do the extra work of letting the back open with a crappy stone and silver? Could be white gold indeed, just get it tested to be sure
  27. BelleEpoque will do ;-)
