MADRE DE OLIVIA


I would love to introduce a wonderful jewelry line that I discovered on Etsy - Madre de Olivia
Besides being insanely talented, artist and proprietor Tamara Mello is one of the nicest and most helpful persons you will ever meet.


A perfect gift for the Francophile - a mini croissant on a chain!

My necklace (shamefully blurry photograph by ME)

I really liked a brass monogrammed and hand-stamped pendant that Tamara sold in her Etsy shop, but wanted to change the chain and add a gold starfish. Tamara obliged me in record time for an amazing value and the necklace arrived artfully packaged with a kind note attached. I have been wearing it ever since!
If you are looking for individual attention and some unique pieces from a wonderful Indie artist, then you need to check out Tamara's shop and pronto!
