Janice, Ruth and Cath drop over to scheme up numerous goodies Friday, Sep 23 2016 

We love it when the whole family is involved, mother and two daughters spark off each other and Barbara works through the generations of treasures. One existing commission of Cath’s is further amended, a bold raw Amber necklace for Ruth.  Two versions of a great recycled necklace with Coral and Turquoise has been designed for Janice.

A gem ‘bricolage’ set of earrings designed for Cath.

Many © Bh commissions come with little extra requests Friday, Sep 23 2016 

So many clients who follow us, earnestly watch what we do for others and this leads to small requests – “Barbara, you know that extended block bail you did for ( X ), would that work for this baroque Pearl I love but have never been able to wear”?


The studio finishes the first of two © Bh ‘in-line’ commissioned necklaces today Friday, Sep 23 2016 


Here is the design worked up with material scanned at same size – no names at this stage, oxidised Silver and 18ct yellow Gold with bayonet clasp. Recycling these rare and sentimental elements from more than one lifetime, is becoming a speciality of Barbara’s.

This commission started with an intimate request and ended up with Barbara contemporising the older ring style and recycling the older mine cut diamonds Saturday, Aug 20 2016 


Commissioned Ring Twin Gem Crossover, little finger ring set with x2 old mine cut Diamonds (Oma Poesiat) 9ct palladium white gold with Rose Gold details. I have shown the earlier ring that was so worn it was beyond saving . . .

An ‘antiques roadshow’ item remade as a commission with her own gems Wednesday, Aug 10 2016 

Barbara and Juan-Luis have housed many large gems with their textured rub over setting technique, 18ct yellow gold extruded star wire length and small bale to suit her pendant design and her own gems. Winged its way to Sydney last night and I’m expecting the phone call soon . . . awaiting the oohs and aahs!




This commissioned ring just walked out the door and onto a plane to Rio to watch the Aussie swimmers (one in particular) Saturday, Aug 6 2016 

The big three – Diamonds Ruby and Platinum, Jenny said to me on the way out “once you’ve done platinum you never go back to gold” just the feel and the weight.
