An old friend from 1999 back for a resize and setting check Friday, Jun 9 2017 

One of Barbara’s early sculpted rings back for its second ever maintenance check . . . Trish noted that she has worn a different pair of Bh earrings, every day for the past 21 days to work. That’s the feedback we adore! 18ct yellow gold with champagne diamonds and the most fantastic large cognac diamond, centrally set.

Joy and sadness Thursday, Mar 9 2017 

“Baby in the Bath” is a birth marker that Barbara and I collaborated on in the mid 1980s. There were numerous commissions, all from friends and clients – this one was made for the Landon family for the birth of their son Theo in 1988. Steve Landon was a superb typographer who ran the tight Brisbane outlet of a Sydney firm called Typefounders. While on our Christmas break I had a FB message from Theo to say Steve had sadly passed away and this little marker had surfaced. I asked that he send it to the studio and we would clean and document it again. Remo Guiffré from the famous Remo store in Sydney commissioned another slightly different version for his store, this spread “Baby in the Bath”further into the world . . . and we still make these to order today.

30yearanniversary-2016-timegshot

Our 30th anniversary was celebrated on December 16th 2016 at an evening bash for another occasion – Tim & Rhana’s Xmas doo at the “Bears”. Thanks Tim Gruchy for the impromptu pic . . .

An email was received on the 3rd of April 2015 – we sent the pendant to Sydney last night, 22nd April 2015 Wednesday, Apr 22 2015 

No task to large or small . . .

“I am looking for a moon and stars pendant in silver to remember my Mum . . . and I am having no luck! A friend of ours has one of your lovely bracelets and last weekend I was in the Art Gallery shop in Brisbane and I saw some of your jewellery and I wondered if you have something like this available? I’m afraid I couldn’t afford to commission – anything large so sorry if I am wasting your time.” “I would like something similar to the photo enclosed – in theme but doesn’t have to be in style – in silver. I understand if this is not something you would like to – or do – take on. Thank you for your time and have a nice Easter.”

We were happy to comply with instructions, exchanged more emails and quote. The end result was created at studio wholesale – Cresent moon pendant as image supplied – diamond eye in Argentium 935 Silver with polished finish to fit the chain (supplied).
