Isn’t it lucky we’re always so ahead of the game…

Be My Valentine

Valentine's Day seems busier than ever this year.   Murano glass hearts, Silver petal hearts and our Enamel Heart pendants are all flying out of the shop, which has made us all wonder where and when exactly Valentines Day originated?  Amazingly, it dates back to a priest called "Valentine" who was working under the strict rule of Emperor Claudius II.   According to the legend, Valentine strongly disagreed with Claudius' rule that soldiers couldn't get married and so he started performing secret weddings for couples. He is said to have been caught and sentenced to death on February 14th but before he died he wrote a love letter an unknown woman which he signed "from your Valentine."  The church later made him the patron saint of lovers for upholding the divine right of marriage and made February 14th St. Valentine's Day.
So now you know!

Gail's February Travels

Just had a weekend in glorious sunshine the other side of the Channel which makes me think Spring/Summer not so far away!  Currently working on a couple of new designs featuring my favourite stone – aquamarine! – one with olive leaves and the other incorporating sea shells.  Both of these should be on our website within 2 weeks, which is very exciting.  We will almost certainly feature them initially in 18 ct gold on silver so that they are really affordable.  But of course pure gold is always an option!

Gail's January News

This is my favourite time of year  - the frenetic rush of Christmas behind us and time for me to be a bit more creative! I am off to Italy at the weekend and will be seeing a couple of my favourite people so that we can work on new designs for the summer. I am thinking along the lines of multi strand bracelets – maybe very fine leather with the opportunity to attach beautiful semi precious coloured drop pendants.
