The repoussé strip is pure gold and is so wonderfully & finely executed, we believe it is from a sleeve cuff, shown above. The Rothery family will shows it all the way down to Len Belloc who settled at East Brisbane then by descent to Miss Emma Belloc from whom Michael purchased articles from the estate. The  studio has made Vanessa a ring at cost from the material.  As the gold sheet is so thin and torn away in places we have cast the underside in solid bright silver, made a ridge and sweated the two together with an oxidised edge and wide-to-narrow shank © Bh
