Commissioned pendant and necklace for a ‘silver anniversary’ gift Friday, Jun 20 2014 

Collected yesterday, this commission is the first work we have completed in the new alloy ‘argentium’ 935 Silver that is un-tarnishable. The hand made silver wrapped cable is 1.8mm with a J hook and hand made in the USA by our friends at Chris’ Cables. Pendant of a pair of textured gum leaves and a single gun nut set with a light silver/blue freshwater pearl. © Barbara Heath – Jeweller to the Lost, Brisbane Australia.

The third Sautoir from last week went off to Sydney and we received a great response Tuesday, Jun 10 2014 

I’ve just withheld the names, this was a gift that just didn’t click in the first place. It sat until “J” made the huge effort to bring it back to the studio and discuss changes that have gone swimingly this time. We only ever want customers 110% happy . . . and approach commissions and relationships with a huge degree of active listening and support. It can’t be any other way . . .

“Hello Barb,
I hope you and Mal are well. My beautiful necklace arrived safely! It is everything that I wanted and sits perfectly. I am really happy with it. Thank you for spending time on this and for being so understanding.
Kind regards,
J “

First a detail as I always post circles and crosses on my other blog, I love this stamped detail:

Clients are now working with Barbara to design different ‘Bib necklets with bar and ring clasp’ – this one rode away with its new owner today Monday, Dec 2 2013 

Mary Gannon had her own large, emerald cut amethyst and wanted to explore three symbols and a square wire frame design. All hand constructed with a 3D box, black enamel insert and a box setting for the gem. 925 bright silver with burnished and matted finish. Larger view – here.

 

Delivered tomorrow – two © Barbara Heath ‘lace’ pieces, a pendant and cuff set in 18ct pink gold Thursday, Oct 24 2013 

Commissioned as a dual wedding gift. Our one-off ‘lace’ sphere pendant with a handmade Niobium cable with an 18ct gold precision bayonet clasp made for us by Christopher A. Hentz in Baton Rouge USA. The half round ‘lace’ cuffs have handmade chain and bars that have been perfected by the studio and are just the thing for single or double cuffs.

This is what happens when client’s have Sautoirs and Necklaces made by the studio, they have all their other pieces restrung and reclasped with our workable fixings Wednesday, Oct 16 2013 

There are numerous sizes and options to Barbara’s handmade ‘bar & ring ‘ clasps. Textured and plain in multiple metal options, some with gems set in the ring clasp – here we have handmade 925 Silver with Dr Gael Phillips’ oval antique ‘millefiori’ Venetian beads. Ready-to-wear anywhere (and dance floor strength into the bargain).
