Future Designers!

Posted by Negar Khatami on

I had the opportunity to meet a young lady on my last event 'Exquisite Lines' who was so fascinated and curious as to how I make jewellery.

I giggle a little bit as I see clients coming in in a panic mode, because I know I will have a unique gift for them and there is no need to panic. So, I thought I should put a little list of what I think makes a great Mother's Day gift & creates the search a little bit easier for you.  First off,  the obvious one, I'd start with a few jewellery from my gallery.  Pearl Blossom Ring...
