Recent studio visitors given the ‘jeweller to the lost’ treatment Friday, Jun 10 2016 

Sixteen © Barbara Heath pieces back for cleaning, two rethreads, settings check, photography and up-to-date replacement valuations, all for a favourite client. Her husband Bryce is always one of the early birds to our annual studio sales, snapping up a strong piece while Janet often commissions pieces to fill the gaps.

I love all our customers, everyone follows Barbara’s minimal aesthetic in their own way. While some love to add more bling others prefer this pared-back look. It is powerful to see what one client has selected for her everyday jewellery to enhance her look.

Barbara remarked how much she loved working with her client who is another artist who just knows her stuff Monday, May 23 2016

Barbara posted this on her Instagram feed with these words: “Had fun doing this today for a fab artist client. I had an idea laid out but she flipped  in a few diamonds and took out a couple of #chrometourmalines, I added a pair of #demantoidgarnets and then we went all black metal and gold edgy! #twoheadsarebetterthanone #ilovemyclients #jewellertothelost”

Two new ‘curved bar’ earrings © Barbara Heath Wednesday, May 11 2016

I really need an instagram movie to show off these wonderful millennium cut Beryls and green Quartz stones, polished Onyx discs set in 9ct yellow and white gold, posts and butterflies – both pairs into our retailer’s stock.

 

Just costed and consigned these to the upcoming ‘mayo’ festival at St Margaret’s Friday, May 6 2016 

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.

Three new pairs of Barbara’s successful © ‘Tapered Box’ earrings just finished Friday, Apr 29 2016 

Earrings ‘tapered box’ © Bh – princess cut 9mm Topaz 2=8.0ct – oxidised 925 silver – claw set 18ct yellow gold – post and butterfly fittings. I could rattle off the names of many clients who count on these as everyday wear. The other two pairs in bright silver boxes with 18ct yellow gold setting tabs have the lighter gem tones of Aquamarine and green Quartz.

Commissioned ‘Bud’ style © Bh earrings ready to collect Tuesday, Apr 12 2016 

bh-budssynruby9ctwg-b

Barbara’s © Bud earring design has four open sculpted petals holding a tension set gem – usually square (sometimes cushion cuts) 9–10mm stones. Entirely handmade, the earring has a hinged french hook that snaps neatly into its safety clasp. Considered details unique to this design allow the earring to face forward, perfectly balanced. This set in 9ct palladium white gold with lovely dark synthetic Rubies 2=7.67ct.

This asymmetric earring commission jetted off to Canberra last night Friday, Dec 18 2015 

A cold call after the Barbara Heath/Richard Fidler ‘Conversation’ broadcast on ABC radio. Our client works for the Australian Government diplomatic corps and had numerous pieces of sentimental jewellery for Barbara to incorporate into a 24/7 earring set to reminded her of ‘Australia and the sea’ – two design options were sent via email and the entire process was conducted successfully from a-far.

I’ve only just received these two shots from my daughter, Elizabeth Enright Thursday, Dec 3 2015 

I dropped her off to the 2015 Melbourne Cup gig in her black 911 she calls ‘the shadow’ . . . then she promptly won “Best Dressed” on the day. Most of our commission clients who attend our annual studio sales have met Lil as she in attendance on these important days. Barb and I (and her Mom, Janis) are so impressed with her people and social skills, her business development and the position she has risen to in her chosen field . . . we LOve you Lil!

She wears Barbara’s © ‘Gem Cluster’ earrings so well also.
