Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
OYEZ,OYEZ,OYEZ, announcing the arrival of the Formal Party Wear collection by Caprilicious!! I wanted the town crier who announced the arrival of Charlotte Elizabeth Diana to shout the news out for me, but unfortunately he was otherwise engaged. Oh well, I'll just have to do it myself.
Hello folks, and thanks for joining me again today. I've had the week from hell where all I've done is go in early to work and come back home exhausted and unable to do anything other than go to bed. Wasn't it a good thing that I had worked hard to get the Bling page up to date with a photoshoot on the Saturday and the editing all done last Sunday? If it weren't for that, today's blog would have been a bit bare.
I asked Lorna, a lovely lady I work with if she would kindly wear my jewellery and pose for me and after a bit of persuasion she agreed. Lorna doesn't believe that she is beautiful and I had to push to get her to come along - her daughter was an unexpected ally and she finally decided that it would be OK to model the necklace collection for me. She spent Saturday morning at my place changing in and out of clothes and jewellery, and in the end thoroughly enjoyed herself, although she was surprised that her photographs were so good. I'm sure you will all agree with me that she is a lovely lady and the necklaces look like they've been made with her in mind. Do write in and I will show her any comments that come in.
After she left I realised that I hadn't taken pictures of two of the necklaces that had got into the wrong box in error, so I had to fetch the selfie stick and take pictures of myself the next day once I'd got the old war paint on.
So there you are, my little collection of Bling! that I am confident that you would be happy to wear to a very posh do with your boss or your mother in law - if you would like to wear one of them in the nude with just yourself for company, be my guest, enjoy.
However, I suggest that you crack open a bottle of champagne, to up the hedonist quotient! A box of chocolates, and a lovely long bath with loads of bubbles, with a glass of champers wearing nothing but your Caprilicious necklace, soft jazz playing in the distance, clean sheets (?crisp cotton or even satin?) to get into once you're done and all's well with the world. You know what, I might just go off and try that recipe for a lovely evening myself!!
A favour to ask of you all, please tell your friends about this collection of pretties, perhaps even send them a link to the website, I would be ever so grateful.
Have a lovely week, and I'll catch you next Friday, same time, same place.
I'm Neena Shilvock, and I'm crazily addicted to jewellery. I've been designing and making quirky and interesting statement necklaces for the last five years and my passion hasn't cooled off one little bit - in fact it has got worse, such that I'm even dreaming jewellery.
