Two mid-year (jeweller to the lost) sale dates to mark in your diary Thursday, Jun 14 2018 

Every mid-year the GOMA Winter Design Market happens, this year its on Saturday July 28th 2018. The combined marketing by every stall holder brings a multitude of new customers to the market day.

This year we are breaking with tradition and opening our studio mid year for commission clients and their friends, so please take notice!

Friday evening the 29th June 2018 for the early birds with some bubbles to share AND Saturday the 30th June from 10:00am – 3:00pm for stock items at wholesale and below. As at Christmas each year we will be making new pieces at whim (at silly prices) . . . necklaces and earrings are planned.

This a chance for our dedicated clients to beat the rush at the end of July! Two sets of two trays are priced down and priced already . . . new ‘curved bar’ necklaces, new ‘bar and ring’ necklaces with added features and ‘five strand bead bracelets’ with added features are priced to go.

This is fun – two shots from friends and clients taken at restaurants Tuesday, Jun 5 2018 

Jean Pierre Khoury, Janet Gibson, Lee Primmer & Warwick Anderson all in Sydney and out to lunch when someone had the bright idea – “hey! we are all wearing Barby’s things!” Off with the lot and snapped a pic and messaged it on to us . . . 11 commissioned pieces of Jeweller to the Lost.

Out to dinner at the Vine recently to celebrate our friends wedding, everyone took off their wedding rings for this shot by Brendan Gaffney with Jacqueline Armitstead, Trish & John Honeywill, KT & Karl, Barbara Heath and mal E . . .

Most recent ‘signature’ bracelet commission © Bh 2018 Thursday, Mar 22 2018 

Practically every new client makes contact through a friend who is a client or via a positive piece of feedback. Sue G is a long time friend of Fiona K and mentioned the locket commission when she first made contact. We were in Sydney for another event and met up with her at the AGNSW restaurant where all her sentimental family material was pulled out and spread across the table. As usual we documented each piece and Barbara and Sue continued their communication via emails and phone calls. We also documented each stage of the process from metal melt to gems reset. We even posted the final piece as a movie on Instagram for the client view. Rather than send in an express post trackable satchel, Sue is waiting to collect her new bracelet when she visits us in Brisbane (with another couple of tasks). Lovely material – lovely client – lovely outcome (same old story) . . .
