Jen Marchant and Barbara go back to Barbara’s early days in the Brisbane Arcade shop. Jen trained as a graphic designer, has started design practices, partnered in studios and has featured in other blog posts of ours . . . so Jen has seen styles and jewellery solutions come and go. Its this knowledge that assists the commission process + the fact that older family jewellery pieces while being sentimental are better off recycled into something modern. It takes vision and guts to walk this path – Jen’s Mother’s Australian opals never looked so good as they do now, having the story intact and now enhanced with Barbara’s lace work and white enamel fusion!
