“Hi, I’m an old Makers Mark client of Barbara’s and I have my Grandmother’s ring which I want the gem taken and I want Barbara to design and make a ring (with the gem) for my Daughter’s 21st . . . Saturday, Mar 29 2014 

Apologies to our own Brisbane on-line ‘thefashionarchives’ . . . we were featured in issue 4 and I have only updated both our c.v.’s to reflect this Thursday, Mar 13 2014 

Number #10 is the recent issue so I’m terribly late with this update, sorry girls!

Our 6 column story entitled ‘pieced together’ is here

and my own Fashion Q & A is here

Today I have posted major updates to our ‘pages’ column Tuesday, Mar 11 2014 

The commission list and CV .pdfs and the downloadable commission reports for the recent year’s activities, as .pptxs might be too much for you iPhone users but the full screen does them justice – enjoy + feedback welcome.

. . . we must mention the swapsies and the garden gifts from neighbours also Wednesday, Mar 5 2014 

Many meals have been made from produce gathered within a kilometre from the property, including lamb cuts and fish and mussels from the Blackman river. This little parcel was found outside the back door from Dot & Mike Evans who own the other two story sandstone building in the village.

The garden at Tunbridge is planted with heritage fruit trees that we have espaliered, now into their sixth year – they are bearing fruit. Wednesday, Mar 5 2014 

. . . and as we are tropical folk at heart, we are really grooving on jam and paste-making down there.

. . . a Jeweller-to-the-Lost selfie by Lil Enright with Barbara Heath Wednesday, Mar 5 2014 

The second studio sale day in a rare moment when there were no clients in the studio. I had this shot as my wallpaper on the iPhone all the time we were on holidays - we have spent two months at our other residence, shop and garden in Tunbridge Tasmania. We returned to the studio yesterday and this is the first post for 2014, yeah!

Here are x8 shots I took of the ‘silver’ objects when they were housed in the studio cabinet Monday, Nov 18 2013 

The show at the Museum of Brisbane opened last Thursday evening to a host of guests and many of our pals, all the artists and those closely associated with MOB. Marian has taken great individual shots of the objects on a white ground and the work itself shown with the backdrop looks super but here I am sharing eight of my more moody shots:

“Six pairs of Queensland’s finest visual  artist collaborate for the first time for ‘silver’. Each duo – a leading photographer and artisan jeweller – consider the differences and commonalities in their practices to present new artworks inspired by our city.” Barbara and Marian’s artist talk is at 2pm on Sunday 13th April 2014 just prior to the show’s closure on 27th April but don’t wait that long to see this super show . . .

More kiddy photos, this time its ronE’s 3rd birthday on tuesday Friday, Oct 11 2013

Issue 4 of the online ‘fashion archive’ launched tuesday this week, I’ve only had time to post on Facbook and have sent a dozen emails to friends mentioned in the texts Friday, Oct 11 2013

In fact Barbara ‘s Q&A was in #3 and my Q&A followed in #4. Liz Golding and Tim Gruchy sent personal messages of support, as did the two co-directors of the archive. Barbara and my resource collections are also covered in #4 in an article entitled ‘pieced together’ – here are the two links – Q&A  – Collections. We do hope you will make it a must read, go back and start from #1 and follow this exciting Brisbane fashion initiative.
