Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello readers, I am now in sunny Bangalore and today is the day of the exhibition. I've set out my stall and now it remains for me to wait and see who turns up at Raintree. I got to Bangalore on the Saturday and had no time for jet lag. My sister in law had kindly agreed to me having a pre exhibition viewing at her place on Sunday for a couple of hours as some of her friends had requested it.
It was meant to be just a couple of hours of work. However, all the jewellery had to be displayed as best as possible in the space that was available. I took over the living room and dining table for a few hours and set out my stall. It was nice to see old friends and make new ones, and the ladies who dropped by were very enthusiastic about this years selection of jewellery and I made enough sales to cover my expenses for the show at Raintree.
I had three days off to rest and relax with my mother ( and to allow the jet lag to catch up with me in all its viciousness) before I had to gear up for Raintree.
This will be my third show, and I know the place well enough. However, I do confess to some butterflies in my tummy - I just hope there is a good turnout and that people are in the right frame of mind to like my jewellery. Here are some pictures of my initial set up which I shall tweak tomorrow and prettify it a bit. I was more concerned with getting all my stuff onto the tables with price tags on every piece today and the aesthetics of the set up was the least of my worries. In spite of this a few people walking by the room popped in and a couple purchases were made - I'd best not over publicise this or I might be charged for a three day show by the good people of Raintree!
Last year I made a friend called Aishwarya at a beading class I taught at Itsy Bitsy and she came by to help me set up. Once everything was out of the box and on the flat, we amused ourselves by taking a few selfies before we locked up for the evening.
I'm off now to the show, keep everything crossed for me won't you, and I'll tell you all about it next week. Have a fabulous week and I'll catch you next week, 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.
