Quiz: Is it a Lilla necklace or a Tiffany’s necklace?

A little necklace I made recently of briolette stones. One of these shots is my friend’s necklace she got from her daughter from Tiffany’s. Can you guess which one? It’s kinda obvious because the Tiffany briolettes are cut perfectly. My stones are from ebay and etsy on the cheap. My friend says she likes mine better. But that just shows you what a lovely person she is because I know she is just saying that.

Lilla’s Arlington Children’s Center sign

Here’s a sign I designed for our wonderful local children’s preschool. Thought you’d like to see it and the very cool 3-D effect they were able to do.
