The Sydney chokers were not in stock during the time I kept checking back: so, being an 'Escama groupie" I had to 'sit a spell' and wait for them to turn up. But when my order finally arrived here in my hands, and I put the neckpiece on...I was thrilled!! I am not only impressed by Sydney's unique beauty. But also, I noted the finishing: the leather 'lanyard' fastener, its eye-catching gleam and, its overall vibe. Elegant, fashionable, recycled yet wholly new..wow. Nice going, Escama!!
