LivMe's Lovely Lotus

Sorry! I can't pass up an opportunity for alliteration! Liv & Me is the design duo and mother/daughter team of Kerstin and Olivia. They opened their etsy shop in December, 2010, and have transformed ceramic pendants and beads, leather and copper, semi precious and glass beads into lovely and elegant jewelry designs! The shop is relatively new, but I can tell their lovely designs will be well received!
