Commissioned hinged cuff with baroque lattice pattern © Bh Friday, Sep 29 2017 

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.

“When you wish upon a star . . . Saturday, Sep 16 2017 

Makes no difference who you are . . .

Anything your heart desires will come to you”

Our first commissioned ‘Stargazer’ ring for Jesse Roebuck: Medallion Ring © Bh ‘Stargazer’ style Diamond, cape colour rose cut SI 1=0.68ct graver set, solid two part fused 18ct yellow Gold. 

“When a star is born
They possess a gift or two
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true”

Barbara continues her research into jewellery, bronze and iron materials Thursday, Aug 24 2017 

Inside the ferro battuto studio of ‘Carlo’ at Civitanova Alta, a third generation regional metalsmith now retired and closing his forge. He has found no one local who is interested to learn the craft and can’t compete with the cheap Chinese products flooding Italy. We are hoping that local council can work to house his stock and trade tools. We were overjoyed when staff opened up the museum for us at Monteloupone, as it was holiday season. Invaluable to have access and time with these old makers.

We are safely back to the studio after three weeks eating our way through Firenze and the Marche region of Italy with our Canadian friends Thursday, Aug 24 2017
