Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello readers, it is finally here - the date of the exhibition. I am posting this before I go out this morning to Raintree to await my public. Wish me luck, won't you, please?
Caprilicious Shall go to the Ball
People kept asking me if I had made/designed this jewellery - I wish!! This time, all that glisters WAS gold, and was borrowed from my sister in law who was kind enough to lend me anything I desired from her collection. I enjoyed dressing up - Cinderella had a good time at the ball.
Indulge, the supplement to the Indian Express, a newspaper in Bangalore printed this article about me last week. The Editor, Jackie Pinto was at school with me, although not in the same year. She loved my jewellery and was kind enough to get one of her reporters to write this little piece - unfortunately Caprilicious was misspelled, but still, it works well enough.
I ran a little workshop at Itsy Bitsy in Bangalore - one at each of two branches - the ladies who came along went home with a necklace, a memory wire bracelet and a pair of earrings. The youngest student was ten years old! They all said they had fun - I know I certainly did and would repeat the experience in a heartbeat. Itsy Bitsy has a fabulous selection of beads, and I came home with a bagful of some very exciting finds which I chose well before my students arrived - I got some really pretty ceramic beads, and have mentally designed my next necklace - I just need to get back home to find the focal bead which is already in my stash.
Just now I feel a bit like a whirling dervish, arms and legs moving in a blur, a complete one woman band. There have been so many last minute hiccups, but it is now, Showtime!!
Keep everything crossed for me and I will tell you all about it soon. Have a great week and I will catch you next week, same time, same place
