Recently commissioned wedding rings for our dear friends Thursday, Jun 14 2018 

They are so private . . . I could go on forever about their attention to detail, their secret plans to get themselves hitched, the way each group of friends were told after the event. We call them our ‘dynamic duo’ and we were thrilled to be part of the ongoing parade of activity. My shot is just the pair of solid handmade textured rings and Barbara’s shot is her presentation, where she went into the garden and selected two different leaves to denote them ‘turning over a new leaf’.

Most of you know we publicise the names of our clients, word of mouth is everlasting but in this instance and because everyone had to be told in their own good time I have sat on this announcement. Last night we received this email text:

Hey lovelies!

Hope all’s well!

Just letting you know you can go live with the wedding band post/s whenever you like.

All family/friends are on board with the news!

Thanks to the “universe” once again Tuesday, Jun 12 2018 

We produced two small sculptures for the Landscape show at Handmark, Hobart, Tasmania in 2014, they returned to the studio and were on show in our annual studio sale 2016. They were then given an airing at Artisan as part of our stock before returning back to the fold in 2017 when Artisan moved premises. An important client called and asked about the little blue one – maybe as a present to her husband on their 25th wedding anniversary.

Well that is today and we are proud to say it will be soon installed on the wall of his study . . . everything we seem to make and push into the world finds its own home in its own good time!

Jean Pierre Khoury, Janet Gibson, Lee Primmer & Warwick Anderson all in Sydney and out to lunch when someone had the bright idea – “hey! we are all wearing Barby’s things!” Off with the lot and snapped a pic and messaged it on to us . . . 11 commissioned pieces of Jeweller to the Lost.

Out to dinner at the Vine recently to celebrate our friends wedding, everyone took off their wedding rings for this shot by Brendan Gaffney with Jacqueline Armitstead, Trish & John Honeywill, KT & Karl, Barbara Heath and mal E . . .

Commissioned earrings with Vokili’s gems Tuesday, Apr 24 2018 

Ruby, aquamarine and Tahitian pearls… all purchased on her travels as a young woman. Then wondering through the intervening years whether she had bought well or been charmingly deceived. We had everything valued and . . . and as it turns out they are all the real deal! Now set in white paladium gold they’re out of the cupboard and onto her ears! #commission #jewellertothelost #realgems

Lovely email to Barbara (and Malcolm) received today from the USA Tuesday, Apr 24 2018 

SUBJECT: Look close – my FIRST BH treasure…and so it began…

Ah yes, those amazing, gorgeous, jaw dropping lace dish enamel earrings are still a fave and dear to my heart. Remember how I stalked you, and these found their way to Perth and now Texas???  You had to trust your Intuition that I was really out there and could provide a home for these beauties…what proved to be the first in my BH collection.  They enjoyed a lovely evening at an event for Jack’s school last Saturday. My “spring thing” ring is clipped out, but it had fun, too.

Sending love your way and so very happy I know you in this world.

With great sensitivity these commissions start with a wish and end with a triumph . . . and always lead to more commissions.
