There is always something special about wearing something that is hand-made. The copper is just the right background for the freshwater pearl. I was afraid the chain would be too long, but it falls just right for several blouses. I wore the set the day after I got it, and had many compliments at work. I'm so glad I got this set. I wear it every chance I get. Everything is so well-made, and just almost glows. I brought up a business card for work, since so many people inquired where I got this. I'm happy to share!
