Well hello there!
Life my end has been, (and is) far from calm and serene, in fact I feel mostly like a swan – calm upper with mad activity occurring beneath the water! So whilst I could witter on endlessly about socket placement and staircases, (both of which are a sore subject today!!!) I'll protect you from the dullness of the building news, (for now anyway) and stride deftly onto something that brings more than a smile to my face.
March 30th, and the phenomenon that is Silver Day!
Over the past years I personally have been delighted with the path our silver buyers have taken, bringing more and more designer-looking pieces with huge influences from the fashions and colours we all love in our clothes. The result is a range of silver that surely has to satisfy even the most discerning of us!
Silver Day has us all excited…
A day such as Silver Day truly has us all excited. I mean imagine for a second the amount of love, dedication, skill and knowledge that goes into the day we have ahead of us. Those girlies upstairs, (as I affectionately call them,) must have been awaiting it with bated breath – hoping and trusting they have got it right and that all their work will be appreciated.
The thing to realise is that they SO know what they're doing, by that I mean they tirelessly and passionately work to see what you want and then push push push to achieve it for you. Now if that means designing a piece because it's not yet available…then that's what they do. If it means sourcing the globe for a particular gem to work with, then that's what they do. If they have to drive an impossible bargain so it's affordable for us…then THAT'S WHAT THEY DO!!!! – If you're catching my drift!!!
So, what does Silver Day hold for us all? Ok I'll endeavour to let you have a taster… If you're of the Big, Bold and Beautiful mindset, you are going to be so overwhelmed! The thrilling colours of the stones we have are unashamedly and outrageously fabulous. I loved parading in the stunning necklaces and had to be forced to remove them at the end of our video shoot!!
A smorgasbord of silver!
The new shows – Ruby Zoisite at 3pm and Silver Boutique at 7pm must not be missed and I for one (especially with spring/summer's delicious pastel palette) will be looking to acquire some pieces from the incredible on-trend Blush selections in which you'll find oyster greys and dusty soft lilacs with fab contemporary styling…and let's never forget the abundance of inspiration that Mother Nature has to offer, artfully captured in the Back to Nature styles. Forget house building for a second there are rather more spectacular needs in life!!!! (Ssshhhh do NOT tell Dan)
If however the simplicity of fluid silver design wins you over every time and you appreciate the completeness of just silver, (if that's not deemed rude to silver!) then Simply Silver fashions will be your pleasure.
So with that smorgasbord to whet your appetite I'm dying to know what you love… Let me know won't you. I shall be presiding over the morning hours like a broody mother hen, hoping like the girls upstairs, that Yes – they've got it right and that you're as blown away by Silver Day as we all are!
And if you're champing at the bit to see the sort of jewellery we'll be showcasing on Silver Day, check out our fab Silver selection!
Lots of love Claire xxx
