Unlike the days leading up to Christmas, the winter chill in January seems particularly keen and biting. Copious amounts of hot chocolate notwithstanding, I’m trying to keep my spirits up by dreaming up and creating pretty things for Valentine’s Day. Yes, that day especially beloved by Hallmark. I won’t get into too much detail now since we are still a bit ways off, but if you are thinking of something pretty to treat yourself (who says we have to wait for someone else to give us presents?), here’s a little teaser….
A beautiful necklace composed of rare elbow shaped Venetian beads from Ercole Moretti (more on them later!) and red and yellow faceted French beads from the 50s. Something pretty to wear during this wintry period of the year!
