    This is a lovely necklace and earrings set made by Bello Modo. The best part it uses some of my top favorite brands. Swarovski, Tierra Cast and Nunn Design…just to let you know. I would make these in an antiqued silver for me to personally wear. But the tanzanite and dark indigo go fabulously with the set like it is.

    The materials needed and instructions for both pieces are included as well.

    Enjoy and share with me what your favorites are to make and products to use.
