Wish lists

Hair 

I went to the hairdressers today; it was the first time in over a year.   I was putting it off as long as I could, but when a notice went around saying we all had to have our photos down for the firm’s intranet site, I felt compelled to have my hair styled.

The hairdresser took off over two inches and its still quite long.   I was happy to note that the colour I had last year was still in, except, of course, the greys are now making themselves known.   So, next month I will have the colour redone (vanity, you cost me money).   I was so happy that she agreed to straighten my hair.   My colleagues at work were all extremely complimentary, which makes me think I must look a sight ordinarily.  Perhaps I should see the hairdresser more often?

Jewellery

Whilst surfing the net for a link to sheela-na-gigs, I stumbled across another jewellery site with items to put on my wish list, which I will do immediately upon finishing this entry.   Its called Celtic Impressions and they do some lovely items including a spiral ring, triple spiral bracelet and pendant.   Its a shame that the ring doesn’t also come in silver, as I no longer wear gold.  Though, I did notice there was a triple spiral ring available in gold.  What’s wrong with silver?

Anyways, I have spent a good hour browsing their site.   I love their 2000 B.C-Newgrange collection and, especially, the Kerbstone and Dolmen pieces.   If only I could win the lottery.   

I adore the tripal spiral motif, so much so I am thinking of having it tattooed on my left shoulder – the right one is already occupied.   Of course, I have to wait for the recommended tattooist to return from a sabbatical.   Its very hard to find anything that incorporates this motif in the way of household items or jewellery.   Odd, as it simple and quite beautiful.

I do like pieces that are inspired by the pagan art of early Europeans. I have no idea why – probably because it is so rare; the modern world having abandoned these old stylings as “quaint”.

A lot of the pieces from Celtic Impressions remind me of the unique style of jewellery to be found in the Outer Hebrides and in the Orkneys.   I am looking forward to seeing what the Sheltand Isles have to offer in the way of designs when I visit there later in the year.

As I do wear silver, its often hard to find modern, unique pieces.  Its all a bit “ethnic” for want of a better word and looks rather cheap.   That’s why I love the designers to be found in the celtic countries.   I just wish I had the funds to acquire more pieces.
