Our third series of enamelled Banksia Brooches will be the botanical link, with high end gems and high carat rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, brooches and exhibition pieces.  Including the three bronze sculptures with 18ct yellow gold and large cubic zirconias shown at the “15 Artists” invitation exhibition 2017 at the Redcliffe Regional Gallery, Moreton Bay. We have kept these key works entitled: uncommon ground, back for just this type of sales opportunity.
