Four days post the 2017 studio sale we are still selling as people call and email the studio Thursday, Dec 14 2017 

We have experienced our ‘best’ ever studio sale this year – in fact, this year I have only had 5 postal invites returned from our snail mail commissioner’s report. It does show how dedicated our customers are . . . it does also reflect on our seriously considered price points. It also shows that contemporary wearable design, generous amounts of high carat metal and our championing of real gems sets us apart from the easy-to-buy disposable high street market.

MERRY CHRISTMAS & A SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON . . .

Studio closes on the 20th December and we will reopen around the end of February 2018.

The 2017 commissioner’s report and studio sale invite went out snail-mail to our clients in the last three days Wednesday, Nov 29 2017 

We have prepared these personal reports since 1989 and each client is mentioned in the ‘commissioner’s list – the lot’ which is the second link down in the blog links. The downloadable .pdf is here

Please make a note of the dates SAT DEC 9 and SUN DEC 10 2017

He is away in Japan at the moment, his latest commission is ready to collect Friday, Nov 10 2017 

Gary knows our styles off by heart – he wanted a textured ‘saddle’ ring in oxidised 925 Silver with a selection of our © Bh hand stamped symbols, one set with a small Ruby. He calls it his “symbol” ring . . .

Christmas time preparation brings out clients who visit the studio with commissions, questions and requests for cleaning and re-jigs Friday, Nov 10 2017 

We take these requests on with pleasure . . .

Mother and daughter both re-jig their © Bh ‘signature’ bracelets Friday, Nov 3 2017 

Colleen’s request was simple, shorten her own Bh ‘House’ Bracelet by two links then use those in Sophie’s bracelet revision. Sophie wanted a new look for hers – while still retaining much of the original. By shifting the alignment of the hero component – a large ‘Leaf Lattice’ medallion and adding three new ‘Signature’ shapes plus those two ‘House’ links – we captured the look she was after with nothing going to waste.

This is a previous pattern used on Trisha’s ‘big-up ring’ of 2013 which we are making again with smoky quartz . . . so this is a newly developed hinged cuff as a partner to her new ring. I like the smart use of the pattern again and the design resolve of the gem placements.
