20 contemporary jewellers now show at Fio Contemporary Jewellery and Design in Brisbane’s James Street fashion district Saturday, Nov 23 2013 

The show opened last night and was a great energetic affair (we all enjoyed local Teneriffe hand made Ales by Green Beacon & food spread by Pennisi Food Deli) – Matt requested that Barbara not show any work similar to our other retail outlets in Brisbane. Barbara and the ‘Jeweller to the Lost ‘s studio have created new minimal wearables with our Lapis Lazuli gem stock. Two pair of earrings and ring and a (detail) of the ‘hero’  large brooch. The five ‘silver’ precursors Barbara started into prior to the collaboration with Marian Drew have also been consigned. Shop 6/65 James Street Fortitude Valley Q 4006.

A client flew up from Sydney to do her usual 7 briefs,  last week, took one look at these and requested her own version of the centre flower planter and has started to select gem stones as the flowers. Largest unit 96mm H – all solid 925 sterling silver © Bh 2013. High-res here.

Delivering these today to Janet Hogan, the cultural historian and fellow member of the Australian Garden History Society Friday, May 24 2013 

I’ve had these small gold bells in the collection for ages and they came out in conversation and then Janet asked the studio to hand-make a pair for her. I’ve posted the originals on my design blog here. Do go and view and let me know if you have any idea what the letters say? or suggestions as to their origin.
