Looks as pictured, good value for money, quick shipment. Communication with the shop owner was pleasant. The earrings are much smaller than I would expect from the picture, though, the image seems to be enlarged to show the details well.

Beautiful necklace! However, I asked for the brown/beige stone in the order note but received the black/gray stone.
Why Magpie's Gems?
Like a magpie, I am drawn to anything sparkly. I've always wanted to make jewellery but there was ever enough time or the right place to sell it.
Etsy seemed like the perfect fit -allowing me to set up shop and do something that I love. It's a wonderful opportunity for me and a much needed creative outlet.
Big bonus - I get to collect more gorgeous gemstones and make beautiful jewellery for you....and me!
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, I'm A One-woman Show!
magpie's gems is inspired by a childhood fascination of all things sparkly and an early collection of stones and minerals. This is a creative outlet for me as I combine things I love - creating, gemstones and jewellery! Hope you enjoy my creations
