So, a couple weeks ago, I was sent a package from 88Links to review here on APOC.
I just had to get pictures of the packaging. Lady Steel, who I corresponded with about this review, did such a nice job even with the color scheme selection and handwritten note! These were some of the most adorably packaged things I've seen! (Okay, okay, I'll stop raving about the packaging and get to the actual products.)
Here are the chainmail earrings. I've worn these quite a few times now and have gotten several compliments on them. They are very lightweight and delicate, so definitely easy to wear for extended periods of time. As far as these being durable go, their lightweight nature as I said makes them delicate, but not so delicate that you're always worrying about them breaking on you with any little move.
Overall, I like these earrings a lot, and they have already become a staple in my wardrobe!
Now, on to the toe ring.
First off, as you can clearly see, I'm not using it as a toe ring. I haven't ever been big about putting jewelry on my feet let alone my toes, since I go barefoot practically 99 percent of my life. I wouldn't want to get such a pretty piece as this messed up by wearing it on my oftentimes very dirty farm/country feet!
Anyways, I saw the color of this ring and it immediately stood out. It struck me as very medieval/elvish looking...And as some of you probably know already, I happen to love that particular style!
This is also a simple, elegant and delicate piece. I wouldn't wear it just around the house doing chores and and the usual routine. So far I've worn it to church, outings to town, etc. It's truly a beautiful ring and, as with the earrings, I've also received compliments on it.
Soooooo...the bottom line on both these pieces?
I give them a thumbs-up! I have always loved hand-made things and both these items clearly reflect the originality, uniqueness and craftsmanship of being crafted by hand. I'm sure I'll be wearing them for many days to come!
