The studio has completed three of the four rings in the set, two collected yesterday Friday, Nov 20 2015 

I have posted on this commission before, it is featured on our 2015 commissioner’s report also this year. Every diamond ring from her earlier life was scrapped and Barbara’s funky version of our ‘London Bridge’ design was chosen for her re-styled engagement ring (centre). The set is now extended with these two ‘Channel Set’ wedding rings, remade using all of her existing diamonds. This type of commission can invigorate a person’s future journey while retaining intimate material worn close for so many years . . . restyled . . . intimate . . . made fashionable again . . . future proof.

I have three other shots – onetwothree.

Email requests are pouring in . . . advance dates for our ‘Jeweller to the Lost’ studio sale this year Saturday, Nov 7 2015 

School holidays and the usual exodus from Brisbane means that we miss some folk, we are going a week later this year. Please diarise these dates: SAT DEC 12 & SUN DEC 13 2015. The mailout is under construction, there are maybe 7 commissions still to be listed. I’ve finished the vision cull and this is the rear image for the snail mail piece reviewing the year.

The Barbara Heath interview with Richard Fidler yesterday created lots of interest and traffic to our email and blog Wednesday, Nov 4 2015 

Michele Ransom-Hughes works for the program and is a great Jeweller to the Lost supporter and friend. Those of you who know Barbara will know that she would always prefer to write than talk – this was no exception because it was an hour-long interview without knowing the questions.

The blog had 727 visitors yesterday with the average page clicks at 4.23 per visitor, the 2014 commissioner’s list was downloaded 37 times . . . our best day ever is 750 viewers, so well done Barby!

2015 Brisbane Open House – Barbara and mal E host two groups as part of “Made in Brisbane” – artist studio tours Sunday, Oct 11 2015 

Really excited to be part of this dynamic concept, our two groups were made up of artists, architects, jewellers, designers, craft people, educators, gardeners, a retired radio announcer and an IT guru. We are prolific when it comes to documenting our own projects so making a powerpoint of 21 small and large public art projects was a breeze. We had precursors and elements to see and feel and an interested set of informed and enthusiastic visitors. October 10 and 11 saw multitudes of venues opened for public viewing – go to “BrisbaneOpenHouse” here.

Her sixteen pieces of old jewellery transformed into a new wearable necklet Wednesday, Sep 30 2015 

Barbara made the first ‘In-Line’ necklet to fully develop her idea using elements from her symbol language and quirky gems from our collection. Barbara made the first one for herself. Once the new necklace clasp and elements were resolved, we decided to retain it in the studio for visitors to see the concept. As we are spending the majority of bench time making for our studio commission clients, the opportunity to create big ticket stock items is limited. We have kept this concept as a “made to order” only.

Another solitaire engagement ring starting with the © Bh ‘moebius’ style and topped with a terrific diamond Tuesday, Sep 22 2015 

Marty and Phoebe started with diamond cluster ideas but ended up selecting an 18ct rose gold Moebius band, we are thrilled as quite a few young funsters have gravitated towards to this sinuous twisting style of late. Topped with a platinum rub-over setting and the band having a polished finish. The round brilliant cut supplied by the Jeweller to the Lost studio has a GIA certificate with a drawn profile of the actual proportions – nice!

Phoebe’s first Instagram post is below: and a link to her second post – here.
