Directors' Top Picks 2

A simple sterling silver necklace.

“I like the simplicity of the design of this necklace. Even though the design is simple it has a big impact when worn. Jewellery has the ability to improve people’s mood and make them happy. It doesn’t have to be expensive it just needs to make you feel good. To me this piece works!.”
