  1. I am fond of all the jewelry photos and looks that you have designed. It looks as though you should be right in there with the best. Good Luck to you and yours.

  2. I love all the jewelry ideas! The button holder is so creative and a great idea for traveling. I hate getting my earrings all tangled with other jewelry and trying to find both earrings as well.
