Starry Designs on Pajama Mommy Community

Holly of Pajama Mommy Community was browsing through Etsy when she stumbled upon Starry Designs. Holly received a bird's nest ring and a pair of oxidized earrings and was taken aback by the beauty of the ring and how lightweight the earrings were.

Here is an excerpt of the article:
Starry Designs offers unique jewelry guaranteed to match any woman’s style, no matter what age group you fall into. They carry rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and pendants, as well as an incredibly exceptional line of rings and earrings that look like birds nests, which I was thoroughly impressed with.

Besides getting a wonderful review, Starry Designs has also been Jammy Approved! Congratulations, Cindy!

in life, like a hug every now and then, that silly smile or laugh for no
particular reason, spending hours doing nothing but play - things that we
use to do without thought as children but seem to have forgotten as adults.

Care Instructions for these softies: Shower with lots of hugs and kisses
daily. No batteries required.
