Tweet If you’re fluent in French, holla at me in the comments, because I’d love to get a good translation of Made in Joaillerie’s post on my ruby-and-gold Juana peekaboo skull locket! Of course, I’ve already used Poodle Translate so I get the gist of the story, but those computerized results aren’t very elegant.  I’m […]
