108 Beads - Why?
When I first found my love of Lava-Links Essential Oils Jewelery, there were some common themes running through the pieces that Delice was designing. I knew with her, being so spiritual, there would be a meaning to everything.
None of her pieces are just thrown together. Everything is done with intention, meaning and for the better good of all.
