Welcome to The Despina Collection!
There is lots to see...so take your time and have fun looking!
I am continuously adding in new items, so check back often for the next new treasure I may have added! :)
*** A NOTE ON BRASS ITEMS ***
Please be aware that brass can vary greatly in color. It may be bright, shiny gold in color, a warm golden color or can even be copper in color. I have no control over this. Designs can vary in color from lot to lot. I have several manufacturers that I purchase from, each of which have different production processes and purchase their raw metals from various ore facilities. Brass is a combination of copper and zinc and depending on the percentages of each ore that is used in the production process, you can have a variety of hues in brass.
If you are hoping for a more consistent color, you may want to order pieces that have been plated. But, please be aware, that plating processes, and colors, can also vary from plater to plater.
