Two separate friends, both clients sent Anne-Marie to us Tuesday, Oct 9 2018 

Out tumbled all this jewellery and gems – it was all reviewed, gem stones unset and the gold sold. Then client and jeweller sat down to plan a new use for the favoured things – one big ring . . .

Britt Owens’ textured saddle ring back for a re-size and settings check Tuesday, Sep 25 2018 

The studio photography doesn’t show the cabochon ruby’s six-rayed star asterism because of the scanner’s band of travelling lights but these three gems are all firmly set in protective settings and wearable again.

Cameron turned up via a lovely client’s recommendation Tuesday, Sep 25 2018 

He had already done his research on our blog – his likes were: “Leigh Phillips’ ruby & diamond ring” and “Murray Mitchell’s swirly metal & gem ring” . . . great! He wanted “delicate proportions” “18ct palladium white gold” “use the two family sapphires” & we supplied an aquamarine, a diamond and another sapphire. It was so surprising, Cameron before looking at the finished ring took the box and formally proposed to Catherine right there in the studio! Shrieks all round . . . lovely happy outcome.

 

Fantastic double ring set using recycled gems and stories Tuesday, Sep 25 2018 

Many ways of wearing together, Flea won the diamond at a function, gifted amber and sapphires from her Mother and Mother in Law. We love creative ladies who come to the studio and “just do it” . . .

Handmade hook and eye clasp finished these two necklace commission Thursday, Aug 23 2018 

Every visit by Margaret Myers incorporates different materials from her and Bob’s interesting travels and lives . . . “re-create two necklaces using as much of these as I can comfortably wear, please Barbara”? yum! Antique untreated turquoise, corals, lapis lazuli and numerous shaped silver Indian trade beads. Barbara did the threading and I had the opportunity to work out the bead placements + Barbara’s handmade hook and eye clasps in 925 silver.

Lovely card from a recent home stay Friday, Aug 10 2018 

His house always has a room available for friends, we were so chuffed to make our spare room available for him recently. His divine card of appreciation (cover detail above) was a delight to read as was his illuminated conversation about most things here that caught his eye. We love the exchange of old-world cards.
