Barbara’s ‘signature bracelet’ has been in production for 31 years Thursday, Mar 30 2017 

I know of three distinct style changes, elements and even their size has evolved. Different ‘bar and ring’ clasp designs have been incorporated. Studio visitors can sort through the record books and create their own unique version. Solid metal with numerous textures and sometimes with gems. This unit is destined for one of our retailers.

Recent studio visitors given the ‘jeweller to the lost’ treatment Friday, Jun 10 2016 

Sixteen © Barbara Heath pieces back for cleaning, two rethreads, settings check, photography and up-to-date replacement valuations, all for a favourite client. Her husband Bryce is always one of the early birds to our annual studio sales, snapping up a strong piece while Janet often commissions pieces to fill the gaps.

I love all our customers, everyone follows Barbara’s minimal aesthetic in their own way. While some love to add more bling others prefer this pared-back look. It is powerful to see what one client has selected for her everyday jewellery to enhance her look.
