Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello readers, thanks for joining me. This will be a short post - I am having to use computers and laptops that I am not familiar with and I will wait till I get back home to give you a full report.
I am basking in the sunshine and to me it feels tropical (my mother says it is cold and has a fan heater in her room) - it is 29 degrees C in the shade at 11am and we are getting ready to go to a wedding - well it is actually a 'non- wedding', as it is more of a partnership ceremony.
I love Indian weddings, the colour and the noise and the atmosphere reminds me of a garden full of peacocks preening around, cackling and calling, making a racket to attract attention to themselves.
I will get a chance to dress up in my glad rags, wear a whole load of jewellery, and go for the full Christmas tree effect - we don't tend to dress like that in the UK, the watchword being 'understated'. In India, the word understatement doesn't exist, or if it does, it is disregarded entirely.
Once the festivities are over and done with it will be time to gear up for the beading workshop at Itsy Bitsy. And then, for the main event - my exhibition. So you can see I'm going to be a busy little bunny for the next couple of weeks. Once I get to the 8th of February, I shall heave a huge sigh. All the mayhem will be behind me and I can relax for a while.
Working with unfamiliar computers is proving to be very difficult, so I will sign off now. I have loads of pictures I will show you as soon as I can, but just now I will end here - catch you next week, same time (ish), same place
