Three new pairs of Barbara’s successful © ‘Tapered Box’ earrings just finished Friday, Apr 29 2016 

Earrings ‘tapered box’ © Bh – princess cut 9mm Topaz 2=8.0ct – oxidised 925 silver – claw set 18ct yellow gold – post and butterfly fittings. I could rattle off the names of many clients who count on these as everyday wear. The other two pairs in bright silver boxes with 18ct yellow gold setting tabs have the lighter gem tones of Aquamarine and green Quartz.

As soon as we make one of these, they seem to go home with someone Friday, Apr 29 2016 

Every time one of these is finished we wonder who will end up with it? These questions are never answered until the object is finally sold. Barbara’s latest Bib Necklace: this one is graced by a beautiful antique white jade Pi disk from Burma and two hand forged Silver symbols linked to the flat shaped and hammered neck pieces with her signature bar and ring clasp – all solid 925 bright Silver © Jeweller to the Lost, Brisbane.

Barbara’s ‘Lace Dish’ has proved to be a constant winner with commission clients and our retailer’s clients, here is the most recent one off the bench Thursday, Apr 7 2016

Barbara is respected amongst her international peers as ‘Ms Texture’. There is a delicate balance between the high carat metal used, the lace impression that pierces the surface of the gold, the sparse use of white enamel fusion, the unique arrangement of quality gems set into the dish and the fine shouldered shank.

QAG|GOMA christmas market day Sat November 28th 2015 Sunday, Nov 29 2015 

We were very happy to bump-in our studio stock for this one day event, well attended even though there were other events close by: The CBD had a “Brisbane climate march”, An ‘etsy’ craft market in the City Hall. Heiser Gallery had an opening for “Bandwagon” showing Robert Moore, Reg Mombassa, Jeff Raglus, Stephen Mok. A private “baby shower” that drew some of our regular clients. Certain hard core mates showed up after those events as well . . .

Very thrilled with all the sales and visitors, many who have also set down our studio sale dates as well.  (Sat December 12 and Sun December 13). Happy with the cross postings / likes via Facebook and Instagram and thanks to K.T. & Karl for sending a Julius pizza over for our lunch, so we managed to keep up a dual presence at our stand.
