The studio creates © Bh ‘sautoirs’ quite often, they dash out of the place quickly Saturday, May 16 2020 

When client’s commission them they are filled with sentiment and extra meaning . . . Megan’s one is meant to be worn long but it looked terrific doubled when she tried it on. I’ve prepared two details (cause I can) – enjoy everyone . . .

Two antique carved bone objects given the treatment by © Jeweller to the Lost Friday, May 1 2020 

Formally a brooch sold by Warwick Oakman in Richmond, Tasmania – now owned by Sharon at Lancasters Antiques in Toowoomba, Shazzie asked Barb if she could turn it into a wearable pendant. Barbara pointed out that she had a similar one from Michael & Vanessa at Michael Allen Antiques at Stanley Street East, in Brisbane.

They hatched a plan back in August 2019 and its taken this long to find half a day to devote to their own stuff . . . “make a large bail attach to a cut out shape with flat claws, find and cut out an oval pearl shell backing, oxidised the silver and mount and set”

Barbara’s own bone piece was complex enough, we just oxidised the backing . . .

Not the usual party for Leila’s birthday due to social distancing – not the usual commission brief either Friday, Apr 24 2020 

Her parents did a virtual brief, Marilyn with the gems and ring samples, Barbara 3 meters away and Damien on the other end of the phone, reviewing images and talking on the fly . . .

Oxidised 925 silver with reticulated surface, punch set round brilliant cut hydro-thermal emerald.

Anytime is a good time for an ‘upgrade’ . . . marking significant life events makes sense Friday, Apr 24 2020 

Janet Gibson is one of our long-time ‘serial offenders’. Her request was to check over both her Lariat and Signature Bracelet and add some . . . oomph elements to both.
