I thought I'd give you a quick update on the preparations for the forthcoming exhibition. I already had so much planned for the three weeks while I visited with my family, that adding a jewellery exhibition to my frenzied schedule seems like an act of masochism.
The first hurdle was to pack all my jewellery as best I could, and then hope that it all made it to the other side in one piece. It took me a while to muster up the courage to open my cases, but by and large, everything was intact - thanks to the guy who invented bubble wrap, no doubt.
I had picked out a venue, sight unseen, but when I got to it, didn't think that Caprilicious would fit the ambience of the place which was heavily laden with Indian antique furniture. A quest for another venue took us to Raintree, an old Raj style bungalow, renovated beautifully with dedicated exhibition space. Once we settled on that, the machinery was cranked up to a dull roar - posters, invitations, packaging, phone calls, mailing lists - OMG! my feet haven't touched the ground.
I have had a restful couple of days with my sister, and will go back to Banglore, refreshed, to sort out yet more of the minutiae - before I have a short trip to Bangkok - the hard life of a jet setter! I don't know how they cope - I am going to need another holiday once this one is done.
I did have time to pick up some delightful silver beads to bring back home with me, and will be on the look out for more. I'd best go now - to get on the flight back to Bangalore and sink my teeth into yet more preparation for Caprilicious' big day.
