Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello everyone, how are you today? Britain has been basking in a heat wave and although I've been busy and locked into the hospital, it's nice to know that outside, someone, somewhere, is lying on a patch of grass, basking in the sun. Life has been crazy busy and I simply didn't have time to get to you last week, but here I am at last, bright eyed and bushy tailed. The garden is enjoying the weather, and hubby is spending loads of time outdoors, watering the plants. I have friends coming to stay with me from the USA in four weeks time and I'm hoping the garden will still look nice, and all the flowers aren't spent by the time they get here.
With all that's going on at work, I had no time to pick up my beads or pliers, but when I received a few beautiful pairs of earring beads, I wasted no time in putting them together. One pair is already spoken for, but the others are loaded onto the website now. Here are a few pictures of my simple, but beautiful earrings.
These acid green beauties are made with Cymophane, an opalescent version of chrysoberyl. I've never seen these gems before and scrambled to pick them up as soon as I saw them.
This is the second time I'm making them and I think they are ever so sleek, sohisticated and elegant. As they are so simple, the fact that they are long won't be a reason why you can't wear them during the daytime, and to work, if you so choose. In fact I see them with a white shirt and jeans, just as easily as a little black dress.
The flowers in the garden are calling out to me to make another floral piece and I have the whole thing planned out in my head. In the meantime, I have the weekend off, but loads of prep to do for a presentation next week. Long lie-ins, lazy brunches in the garden, out in the sunshine - and a laptop by my side, constantly reminding me that I'm playing hooky, instead of preparing for the next week - I'm going to feel like I'm back in school!
That's me for this week, folks. Have a fabulous week and I hope to catch up with you again next Friday, same time, same place.
