Forged copper rings, sari silk, freshwater pearls and garnets...

these are beautiful renate - similar but so very different... i love the variation in color in gypsy... subtle, yet intriguing...and i love the runes you chose!

The colours are just lovely in both pairs of earings. I especially like 'gypsy' as garnets are a favourite of mine.
