Barbara Heath © 2013 – Stock Ring: 18ct yellow gold with white enamel fusion with bead set trillion cut Iolites by Jeweller to the Lost
This lovely Barbara Heath ring sustained a serious blow to the side and the entire double set of grids moved considerably. The task was to work out just what element had to be coaxed back first and then work to align all the angles. Handmade in 18ct yellow gold with oxidised 925 silver – sending this much loved and well worn ring home today in an express bag.
. . . her sister Suzanne inherited the chain and the studio has now added Suzanne’s childhood Mexican charms from Tasco combined with our signature matt onyx beads to bring the necklace ‘up-to-date’.
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).
yep, he’s 21 and a bearable border terrier . . .
In fact Barbara ‘s Q&A was in #3 and my Q&A followed in #4. Liz Golding and Tim Gruchy sent personal messages of support, as did the two co-directors of the archive. Barbara and my resource collections are also covered in #4 in an article entitled ‘pieced together’ – here are the two links – Q&A – Collections. We do hope you will make it a must read, go back and start from #1 and follow this exciting Brisbane fashion initiative.
