What is something you want your future customers to know about your shop: This is a passion of mine and I always strive for happy customers, as you can see from all of my shop reviews.

My favorite item from this shop has got to be this black beaded necklace. I don't typically swear necklaces quite like this but I do really like this one. Its a bit simple but I love that about this piece. I love how its black because it would go with pretty much anything, you can dress this up or dress it down as well. This chain is silver plated as well!
