[won't see me for] Silver dust...

Well, at the end of a very long week the crazy rush to get everything done for heading off on the trip is over. Collection of jewellery made - check, stringing like a mad thing - check, post it all away - check. Now all I have to do is pack ;))

The necklace above is the piece I was making for myself....I already had the pearl and the chain done, so it was the olive leaf bit I was working on. As I have mentioned before, I don't wear much jewellery...but I do always like to have something that can work for low key as well as dressed up wear when I am away. This hits the mark perfectly, it is an enormous stunning pearl {love the ridge in it, almost like hand thrown porcelain}...and the gold, oxidised silver and white colour scheme works with everything!!

Dashed into town last night for some late night shopping, as I 'needed' some new things. It is always nice to treat yourself every now and again when you have been working hard - so I thought this was the perfect opportunity! I also heard it has been raining in Paris - so was delighted to find a beautiful French navy Mac, with structured funnel neck and belt....it almost has a fifties silhouette with a really great kick from the belt, which I love. I also really splurged on an *amazing* leather bag from Jigsaw which I am just in love with.....anyone who knows me will tell you I am a bag {leather, mind you} junkie...so it is always so so lovely to get a new fix ;)) Also picked up some new books - so will let you know what I think about them when I get back too - they all look really good.

So, see you back here in a wee while...Wishing everyone a good weekend!!
I will return with images of Paris galore...:)

Hi,
As a gift this morning I got a ring designed by you, a pearl ring solitaire. I just have to write and tell you that I love your designs and that the ring is beautiful!
