Spring is here at last!

I just took this picture of a small bed of crocus and Narcissi in the garden they are so bright and pretty I couldn't resist showing you, I only planted this little bed before Christmas and it is doing well the second picture is of one of the Camellias in the garden, there are several as I love them they make such a show this time of year the first Magnolia is blooming away but the batteries ran out on me so I couldn't take more photos!

The Silver Lodge is no More!

We have at last changed the name of our web site from The Silver Lodge to Kydo Jewellery, as the name was no longer appropriate. It is rather sad in a way but we hope the new name and new inspiration will bring its rewards as we start afresh.

Lara chose the name KYDO and it does have a meaning it stands for KEEP YOUR DREAMS ORIGINAL, which seemed just perfect, for the new collection of art jewellery The Gold Collection, created from gold polymer clay and set with Jaspers, Agates, pearls, fossils and coloured gemstones, among other beautiful stones I have sourced over many months which will be appearing on the web site over the next weeks. The collection is themed around nature with leaves playing a large part especially ferns, as they will soon start to unfurl, a little later this year as the weather has been so cold.

Everything is still not quite sorted as we can receive email on our new address but can't reply as our internet provider won't send it through, so we are useing the silverlodge address at present until its sorted; it is really annoying though!

Let me show you one of the new pendants on the web site. The stone is a very large mystic quartz the fine gold vermeil chain is embellished with Swarovski Crystals.

All finished

At last I have finished visiting all the bead soup blogs, this has been a real marathon for me as just prior to this one I did the One World One Heart giveaway and had those blogs to visit too, so no time to write my own blog. Thank you Lori for organising it.
I will be writing to tell you more about our new web site which Lara and I have just finished a little later.
