Belated Olympics or Carnival Inspired Pieces

Last night I finally got around to making the long promised Olympic inspired pieces. I have to admit that it was hard work doing these after the excitement of the Olympics had passed. There are so many designs floating around my head that I want to make that I feel these were a little forced. But hey, I said I’d do them and I stuck to my word. After making them I realised that the designs could possibly be useful for another, completely different event, the Notting Hill Carnival! This holiday Sunday & Monday around 1 million people will take to the streets of West London to dance, eat, drink and just have a great time. Fingers crossed it doesn’t rain! I think the carnival gets a lot of bad press sometimes, yes there’s the odd idiot who comes to make trouble but on the whole it’s a peaceful event and as the largest street party in Europe it’s something for London to be proud of. It’s also a chance to get your flags out a celebrate London’s cultural diversity. So maybe if I pop by over the weekend I can wear one of my new necklaces…
