Well... the "wet look" is due to our intense wishes to sell our jewelry on the beaches of the Bahamas where tourists will adorn themselves with our bathing suits, beautiful colored wraps and, of course, our jewelry that will be "at home" in the water! Ornate copper findings are paired with blue freshwater pearls and czech glass beads! Can't you see yourself sipping a pina colada on the beach? We can! All items from "mendlbarr" arrive beautifully packaged for gift giving!
