Us Girls



I was interviewed by the tv show US girls on jewellery and my favorite personal pieces. Angel Aquino was there and I must say, this woman has FLAWLESS skin! I kept on staring at her (hope she didn't notice)

Here is Angel modelling some of my jewellery.
OK, am really sorry, but I got embarrassed taking her pics and was only using my camera phone. Sorry so blurry!






Thanks Angel and US girls!
