Krista is a viewersite blog follower and Brad and I decided to hold back on publishing the image above. I did it so he could see his commission just prior to sending it off to Sydney. See the comments panel for more of the conversation & search this blog for the other fabulous pieces of Barbara’s jewellery that she owns, including one of the first pairs of 18ct yellow gold handmade hinged sleepers. “Happy Christmas for last night”!
