Silver and Gold ... and RED!

Posted 9 years, 8 months ago by Heidi Brown    0 comments

Hello friends,

I have titled this post 'silver and gold' for two reasons - first in honour of the extraordinary winter we are having. Silver for the icy blankets covering the morning grass, and for the snow flakes that have fallen upon parts of NZ that have never felt the touch of snow before (not in my lifetime anyway). Gold for warming up by the fire, glowing embers, and the welcomed touch of sunshine after days of grey rain.  

Secondly, it is in honour of the new Claddagh ring Celtic Connexions has brought in from Ireland. The design combines the mesmerising shine of fine Sterling Silver, either with the exquisite warmth of Rose Gold, or the classic brightness of Yellow Gold. The band is solid at the front and back, joined with heart-shaped Celtic knots on either side, altogether making for an attractive ring with depth of meaning. Available in a range of sizes, in either silver/rose gold or silver/yellow gold.

The RED part of our title is in honour of the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, who will be performing in Hamilton this September, at the Scottish event of the year: The Spirit of Bannockburn. 'a night of Scottish revelry' held at Vector Arena on Friday 30th September.

This promises to be a memorable event for those who love all things Scottish. Dress up in your kilt, and get ready for awesome live music by the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, wicked stand-up comedy by Des McLean, tributes to Scottish history on the big screen, and much more. Bring some extra money and enjoy a meal of haggis, neeps and tatties!
