I can’t go out of the house without  having 3 things on me.  Mascara, lipstick and earrings !  and my all time favorite are long “chandelier” earrings. I have so many earrings sometimes its hard too remember which ones I have and in what color!  Now of course, I have many more than before and I love designing earrings ….the long  [ Read More ]
