Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello folks, I'm so pleased to see you here again today after a long time. Well, it seems like a long time to me - I've been so busy at work and hubby dearest gave me the unwanted gift of the flu - I've been coughing and spluttering all over the place, with no chance of taking time off work. I know it's a bad look when the doctors look more sick than the patients, but with all the industrial action going on, I guess they are happy to see any doctor at all - my health is immaterial. I'm hoping I lose the last remnants of the lurgy over the weekend as I'm on call all week, next week and being below par does not work well in those circumstances.
The piece I'm about to show you took simply ages to make - it started off as a squiggle on a card while I was waiting for the speaker during a 'leadership' away day. I enjoy making these 'collage' pieces where a number of disparate elements are brought together. I've had the sections of shell in my stash for almost 10 years and decided that I was going to use them. I had to figure out how to attach them to the backing without the use of glue and what I was going to add to enliven the piece. As everyone knows, I'm not afraid of colour, so I decided to go all out and use a whole bunch of them - the pendant was going to hang from a predominantly orange/red necklace, but I decided to contrast rather than co-ordinate. This one's most definitely for a brave woman who likes to be noticed, who will walk into a room fearlessly ,wearing it around her neck.
That's me for today, folks. I shall now go back to bed - all this cough syrup is making me drowsy - but it doesn't seem to be helping my cough. Come Monday morning, I have to be well - that's all I can think of right now.
Have a wonderful weekend and I'll catch you soon,
