I chose the last pair of earrings from my shortlist because I like them but also because the seller is an Aussie and it's always good to support a fellow countrywoman. Also it means that I'll get them sooner.
This is the pair I was interested in intiailly.
I also managed to find another 2 pairs from the seller's collection.
I received the package yesterday. The earrings came in these beautiful pouches.
Below is my modelling shot. Isn't it gorgeous? I really like the Art Deco style.
The turquoise beads give this pair of earrings a burst of colour.
The tanzanite Swarovski crystals and pearls work really well together. I wore them yesterday after I opened the parcel and received complements straight away!
From the photo on Etsy I was expecting the earrings to be a bit smaller. It was my fault for not reading the descriptions closely. The size is absolutely fine, it's just interesting how my brain automatically assigned a size to the earrings. I bought a pair of earrings from another Etsy seller a while ago, they were so much bigger than what I pictured, I couldn't wear them and I gave them to a friend of mine instead.
The seller is so lovely to deal with, I didn't expect her to answer my questions at 8pm but she was prompt and very helpful. I love buying from Etsy sellers, I think because the goods are hand made they are very passionate and often go out of their ways to please their customers. Have a look at Wellstrung's Etsy store and website and you may find something too!
