Barbara cautions me to say that “we don’t do repairs for other people’s jewellery” . . . but Allan Cooper isn’t just (any other person), he’s my soul-brother! This ring is from the U.K. – 1937, his Dad’s wedding ring that he wore every day that he was alive and married. It went to Allan after his Mum’s passing 16 years ago and he has worn it every day until it was handed to us with scrap pieces of family’s gold to make whole again.

(2) hours for Juan-Luis to forge and merge and finish, hey! its not even a job – its a boomerang for all the help we have received for advice and assistance on our Tunbridge building. Remember that Allan and Linda Cooper are restoring Woodbury House, not 11 minutes down the Midland Highway from us in Tasmania.
