So get yourself a nice cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the 'ride' :-)

Ok I don't want to tantalize you any longer ;-) Here comes the first image of the new 'Forever Young' collection, designed by the wonderful Elisabeth Bell: 'A-Merry-Go!'

I love the way you have embellished with pearls - the swirl being highlighted with additional pearls along the leaves. It gives such a sense of lavishness & the colours are beautiful together. Such glee in the girl's expression & the horse looking as if he is glancing back at her in trepidation.
Thanks
