Check out the Protea Amulet Necklace and the Protea Stacker Ring in my online shop! xo,Christine

Last month I added the Protea Stacking Ring and the Protea Amulet Pendant to the Protea Collection. This week I'm working on doorknocker style earrings as the next addition to the collection. After a couple versions, I think I nailed down the right proportions.   xo, Christine
