Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello people, how are you? In the UK we are back in lockdown and in the US of A the map is depressingly swathed with red, although it would appear that as I type, Joe Biden is emerging the victor. I'm not sure what's up with central USA that they can't see through their Potus, and I fear the bloodshed and craziness that must inevitably follow.
In the meantime, there are 50 days to Christmas and (drumroll) it is Caprilicious' 9th birthday today, the day I originally registered the website.
I was meant to be in London all week, but that got cancelled, which meant I had to go back to the day job. I do so look forward to my jaunts in London where I work hard all day and have the evenings to meet up with friends and have myself a load of fun. Unfortunately it was not to be and of course, Bonfire Night and Diwali stand cancelled as well. Now that I've given you my sob story, I can get on with the rest of the show!
I've been working up to my next opus but have a few details to work out yet in my head. In the meantime, I made another Bohoglam Neck stack. I love pillar box red, it's my favourite colour (except when it paints the map of the USA) and chunky coral is my favourite too. When I was growing up, my mother had a graduated string of pale orange coral beads and she would try to convince me to wear them to parties - I refused firmly. That's not my way of wearing coral, all prim and prissy, no siree. My beads would have to be vibrant, wild and have their own personality - and I think you'll see that in what I'm about to reveal.
I love the vibrant reds, the shiny haematite, the black enamelled rectangular clasp and of course the pièce de résistance is the beautiful lobster clasp, studded with micro pave set diamante'. The jasper and onyx flowers are lovely too. Of course there are three necklaces for the price of one, and they can be worn singly although the best effect is when they're worn together. In the open neckline of a shirt or over a jumper is how I see them - and they are certainly appropriate for the season that's about to hit us in 50 days time, Covid or no Covid.
That’s me for this week, folks. Have a fabulous time and I’ll catch you next Friday, same time, same place.
