Most recent ‘signature’ bracelet commission © Bh 2018 Thursday, Mar 22 2018 

Practically every new client makes contact through a friend who is a client or via a positive piece of feedback. Sue G is a long time friend of Fiona K and mentioned the locket commission when she first made contact. We were in Sydney for another event and met up with her at the AGNSW restaurant where all her sentimental family material was pulled out and spread across the table. As usual we documented each piece and Barbara and Sue continued their communication via emails and phone calls. We also documented each stage of the process from metal melt to gems reset. We even posted the final piece as a movie on Instagram for the client view. Rather than send in an express post trackable satchel, Sue is waiting to collect her new bracelet when she visits us in Brisbane (with another couple of tasks). Lovely material – lovely client – lovely outcome (same old story) . . .


Studio visitors who heard the Radio National, Richard Fidler interview the second time it was broadcast Wednesday, Dec 27 2017 

Mother and Son looking to re-jig a family hoard – a few repairs first once everything was sighted and bagged ready for job bags in 2018. ” Barbara, is it possible to make this quite larger for me to wear”?

Our last job to be collected before holidays, tomorrow . . . HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE!

Here is a section of the studio stock ‘lay-down’ for the QAGOMA christmas design market in two weeks time Friday, Nov 10 2017

Mother and daughter both re-jig their © Bh ‘signature’ bracelets Friday, Nov 3 2017 

Colleen’s request was simple, shorten her own Bh ‘House’ Bracelet by two links then use those in Sophie’s bracelet revision. Sophie wanted a new look for hers – while still retaining much of the original. By shifting the alignment of the hero component – a large ‘Leaf Lattice’ medallion and adding three new ‘Signature’ shapes plus those two ‘House’ links – we captured the look she was after with nothing going to waste.

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.
