Letter’s from costumer:

Dear Ms. Milosevska

I am Marianne’s daughter who just contacted you.

I just want to let you know that I love the unique earring with the butterfly which you crafted last year.

As I am very sensitive I have the sensation of a very strong protectional energy while I wear your earring.

Do you work with a special kind of energy?

I love your work.

I wish you a lot of joy and success with your beautiful work.

Kind regards

Floria

I commissioned my first piece of exquisite jewellery from Oro Workshop in 2013(?). It was a multi-function brooch/necklace crafted from silver and amber which, from the moment I saw it, was immensely special for very personal reasons. I must say that this piece could not have been more perfect for me, representing things that were, at that time, unknown to Marija, the designer/artist. 

Of course, I now have many other pieces! Oro Workshop continues to tempt me in with such an amazing range of beautiful items. From my collection, it would be impossible to choose a favourite, as each one feels different and brings its own unique characteristic energy! 

Without doubt there is created within this workshop, something very special indeed and you will feel it for yourself as soon as you see and experience your own piece.

It’s not only fine jewellery; it’s Macedonian magic!
