As fab of a creation as the lovely fashionista mom who inspired it! Handcrafted, so each set is made uniquely for you! Nickel & lead free. Cotton cord; sterling silver plated or rose gold plated brass. Most of my pieces are made to order and should be on their way within 5-10 days. Slight variations can occur due to handcrafting & kinds of cord, but I create with a perfectionist's attitude.
