This is totally gorgeous and I want it. I like the colors just the way they are given. I think it will go with the majority of my outfits. I just have to change some of the materials to more inexpensive ones. Sterling silver in my area is very costly. The beads would be a killer. Plus the findings and Swarovski crystals. I will substitute Czech Crystal and silver plate and away I go.
