Isn't her stuff amazing!! I covet! Love the Adam and Eve ring. I just love all of it actually. So unique...definitely a conversation starter.

If I had to choose I think I'd pick the crocodile ring. I am such a fan of jewelry with interesting articulation.

Plus, I love the color combo with the Amethyst showing through the skull.

Swoon....

Not my taste in jewelry, but I'd love to own that carpet in the showroom.
