Mellow Yellow

Not since the 70's when I wore high canary yellow platforms did I think we would all be wearing yellow again! But everything goes full circle and oh yes, it's back. Ok so not everyone looks as fantastic as Cheryl Cole in these summery hues, but we can all do our bit for fashion with a shade of yellow in our wardrobe. We can try an accent of yellow in our accessories too, like lemon quartz or citrine which look fab with black. There are also some bright funky sherbert lemon lampwork beads around, so if you are still in doubt, give it a shot. Wish I had kept my canary yellow platforms.......or perhaps not!!

Sheer Elegance

It is that time of year again when wedding events and bride shows are springing up everywhere ready for stunning summer celebrations. There are some superb designer dresses out there on the cat walks of which versions are already filtering into the shops. I noticed a change in some of the styles of designers Valentino, Giorgio Armani, Oscar De La Renta and Elie Saab with the emphasis being elegant floaty sheer fabrics in straight and long designs with fluid movement. Colours are also still in vogue too with dresses of all imaginable hues gracing the aisles and shops for brides and bridesmaids. The last wedding we had in our family, the Bride Ann, wore a stunning black wedding dress and looked amazing!

Spring Has Sprung!

Pete and I had a nice walk in our local park on Sunday, it was wild and windy! The displays of early spring bulbs was so pretty we couldn't help but take a quick pic. It prompted us to think of Mother's Day which is on 22nd March and an appropriate image for the website.
We purchased a colourful sunflower bird feeder for the garden and filled it with nuts. Within no time at all we had gold finches, green finches and the resident squirrel family all tucking in!

Rosy Posy

What an apt name Rosy Posy is. This is a beautiful commissioned piece from one of my favourite designers :-) A gorgeous silver bangle with luscious faceted pink amethyst cubes, mystic pink quartz briolettes, pink amethyst rondelles, rose quartz rondelles and rice rose quartz briolettes. My client was delighted with it ! How much more feminine can you get ? Thanks Jo !!
