Hyacinth watch {part ONE}...

Well...you know what? I am ready for Spring. It's official. I am cold all the time, and am looking forward to not being! I'm also looking forward to all the new blooms and inspiration that usually comes my way around this time of year...

So, on topic - I got some Hyacinths this weekend. You might remember me going ga-ga for them last year when I got some for the first time {I had never had them in the house growing up as my folks hate their smell - though I love it, I have found!}...and this year is sure to be no different! Roll up one white and one lilac...

In fact, after a wee natter with the original ideas man himself, I have decided to embark on Hyacinth watch 2009! Oh yes! 

...from bud, to bloom, to design, to bijoux...I have found the new inspiration for the next set of limited edition Spring necklaces. You will get to see the design process as I go along...as they bloom, as I shoot them...draw from them, trace shapes, stylise {possibly swoon a bit, too}...find the perfect images to work with, and then get to the bench and pierce!

Hope you will all watch along with me {the Hyacinths here, and for Spring too}! ;) Should be a nice wee project to see evolve!?

Happy Monday all, hope your weekend was a nice one!

You would love it here...

My garden is full of daffodils, and the green opposite has a whole corner full of crocuses (sic?) just about to bloom.

Was lovely to see on my wee dander this morning.

Spring is definitely in the air! I have to agree with your folks about the smell of hyacinths though...

(is that the new Toast catalogue I spy on your pile of stuff?)

anon...I am sure I would...can't wait to see it! ;)

kirsty...it is indeed! Arrived just before the weekend, not overly crazed about the clothes this season, but the styling is impeccable!

I think I will have to go get me some hyacints, to join the watch.

Sounds fascinating. Spring is sort of on its way here, but VERY late this year...
