I love the earrings design and quality! They are very comfortable and super light. I found it is easy to style with both elegant and causal outfit. It catches eye!!! What I like the most is knowing that they are made by hand. I highly recommend her earrings.
I’ve recently bought two face masks and they are amazing and very well made!
I have also bought a beautiful pair of earrings for my girlfriend. Satomi was very available to choose the precise colour I wanted for her. The style and the accuracy in the manufacturing process is perfect as described. Also the metal she uses is antiallergic. I like elegance of her products and it always go beyond my expectations.
