Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello lovely people, thanks for coming by. I hope you're all staying warm and out of trouble. I've had the week from hell at the day job, which has meant that I haven't had the energy to pick up a needle or a bead when I got home of an evening. All I seemed to want to do all week was to go to bed early. We're playing catch up, seeing all the people who have waited patiently through the first half of this year and perhaps I've become unaccustomed to what suddenly feels like very hard work.
It is Caprilicious' 9th birthday in a couple of weeks time and I thought I'd take this opportunity to celebrate with you from this week onwards. I have a code for a 25% (yes, gasp! 25%) discount across the board on the website - let's all have a great time! I have loads of new earrings on the website and you will have plenty to choose from, you might be able to do quite a lot of your Christmas shopping here, remembering that I offer free postage in the UK once your purchases mount up to the £100 mark, and I'm happy to box up your jewellery and send it out to your friends all wrapped up with a card from you thrown in. I've always offered a layaway to people who love my jewellery, but since the pandemic have extended it to everyone - every little helps, doesn't it? We shant be beaten by a little thing like a pandemic! Let me know if you wish to avail of this facility and I'll sort it out for you.
The birthday code is HappyNinth and it lasts for two weeks from the moment this blog is posted, and it is available to you until the 6th of November, Caprilicious' birthday. Happy Browsing!
So let me leave you with pictures of my very first Caprilicious Woman - her name is Meg and she is a beautiful, bright young thing, whom I've know almost since she was born. Her mother and I were at school together, and then medical school, and we were junior doctors in the UK in the early nineties. Here's a picture of us all dressed up to go out somewhere with Meg as a little girl.
And then she grew up! I've told this story before, but her mother commissioned me to make a couple of necklaces for Meg. There was a Tom Binnsesque punk rocker necklace and another, more grown up piece with corals, jade and Bali silver sea creatures - I'm not sure what happened to the first one, but I'm proud to say that the second one still exists- I've seen it worn fairly recently!
Meg loves showy jewellery and carries the larger pieces off with ease. I've given her some of my experimental pieces over the years and she's worn them with a sense of fun.
That's me for now, folks. Have a fabulous week and I'll catch you next Friday, same time, same place.
