So many friends and clients pushed for this meeting between Nell Schofield and Barbara Heath Sunday, Mar 15 2020 

Nell swooped in and spent a lengthy time with us, selected twenty seven © Bh pieces for her upcoming “jewels to die for” show. Relaxed time where Barbara had the opportunity to cover her personal history, her work strategies and the ‘JewellertotheLost’ brand – Nell also was given space to illuminate us on her “Vision” and plans and fresh new twin location lifestyle.

So get out your black fascinators and join us in Sydney to honour the dearly departed, Wednesday March 25, 2020.

Second last commission for 2019, collected from the studio yesterday Thursday, Dec 19 2019 

No photography can show off this stone like holding it to view under natural light. Kathy’s 5.78ct cushion cut Tanzanite and Barbara’s own version of her open sided integrated ‘Roman Claw’ setting with tapered band.

Megan saw the Zavelsky ring stack online and . . . well, got in touch. Thursday, Dec 5 2019 

Barbara worked with an excited lady who had a collection of fossiked gems from her childhood family holidays. Unusual sapphires all ‘field cut’ plus her Mother’s and Grandmother’s diamond rings to incorporate. We sold all the gold which helped the budget and Megan chose a combination of rose and white gold to suit the pastel-toned gems.

New photography by Florian Groehn of our relocated public building jewel – Net 2 Wednesday, Jul 24 2019 

Text supplied by Jacqueline Armitstead: Internationally recognised designer and jeweller Barbara Heath has fashioned a large-scale building jewel. Net features repeat interlocking stainless steel links that reference the themes of networking and teamwork that operate in both nature and culture.

Net also draws upon the rich history of the site as a place of human, cultural and scientific endeavour and is evocative of fish traps and nets used by Aboriginal groups who came to hunt the abundant wildlife in the Brisbane river and its swamps and creeks.

Net was originally commissioned in 1998 for the Neville Bonner Building, Brisbane by the Department of Public Works, architects – Donovan Hill. In 2017, Net was relocated to 1 William Street, Brisbane with the assistance of building owners Cbus Property. Net forms part of the cultural heritage collection owned and managed by the Queensland Government. Fabrication and both installations were effected by G&B Stainless and engineered by Bligh Tanner, Brisbane.

Remember the wonderful multiples created by Stuart Devlin? Friday, Jul 19 2019 

These three were purchased at auction by our client who requested we repair and clean them. It became obvious to us that the 1960s packaging (where they had sat all these years) was toxic and had enabled the corrosion and the patina to decay. Each object was dismantled, cleaned by chemical, washed multiple times all by  hand and reassembled. His wikipedia link.
