The little pig was a gift from Sharon Christison at Lancasters in Toowoomba who has hundreds of things come through her hands every week. Shazza never fails to think of us and all our small collections – if she does’t offer we might never know of its existence being a hundred kms away.

Barbara makes everything locally with Juan-Luis, her other permanent studio jeweller and Dimitar, our off-site back-up. Keeping up stock to our three retailers is hard these days as our lovely ‘commission’ clients are now initiating jewels into their family’s third generation. Most new business comes from word-of-mouth and my daughter’s extended set of fashionistas . . . these flower earrings usually go as soon as they are seen out and about.

Purchased at the recent MossGreen auction in Hobart, from the Stillwell collection. Our friend Warwick Oakman did the valuations for the collection and noted that these were extremely rare and made similar to the other collars made for the slave trade.
Survived by his Jamacian wife Odette and his children who are all very well set up because of his astute buying and selling over his sixty year career. He was from Adelaide and I first met him in Brisbane when only a youngster working for Harcourt Howard. He went on to live in Trinidad, England and then Sydney where he ran his business from the matt black painted Victorian three story shop on South Dowling Street that was chokers with everything Chinese, European and English, of very high standards. He summoned me to Sydney one day tempting me with something he said he’s never offered to anyone else – the MacKenzie bookplate collection. I even knew where it was hidden in his shop but had never asked him what was in the timber leather bound boxes that looked more like books. Many of our Sydney friends have become his clients after we have introduced him to them – Vale my friend “Brucie” . . .
