Commission cufflinks for a dream couple – this time its her to him Tuesday, Jun 21 2016 

K.T. is a staunch studio supporter, in fact she brings her good self and her Barbara Heath product knowledge to most of our studio end-of-year events to assist us with sales and wrapping. This time she chose Barbara’s larger ‘chrysanthemum’ symbol for her gift to Karl. For me its great to see these transition into a masculine object . . . photography from the client also.

Bangle © Bh 1989 Titanium 925 Silver – In fact we were out the other evening at dinner at our friend’s house and Jemina was wearing a similar bangle from this era . . . she remarked that she wears it a lot, in a stack with other Silver bangles.

 

We are working our way through her jewellery collection, revamping as we go Saturday, Jun 11 2016

Band has 18 round brilliant cut diamonds as supplied, flush set in irregular pattern ‘like stars’. 18ct rose gold with matt and polished detail. Size Q1/2 – click here for a larger shot.

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.

A busy week taken up by new designs and these two commissioned rings Monday, Jun 6 2016

Redesigning her wedding ring and making a new one for him. To celebrate their anniversary . . . using two of their diamonds and adding a third to narrate a life, a family and a love continuing. An overlaid 18ct yellow gold ‘ice ray’ lattice on an 18ct white gold band. The design represents life’s paths and connections. For Josephine, the diamonds represent her loved ones. A composite shot of her ring here a different treatment here and a final top shot here.

A very satisfying commission with a wonderful articulate couple; Peter and Josephine Hill, a fabulous pair of rings even if their complexity pushed us at times in the planning and the make stages.

Here is the St Margaret’s artist talk flyer – 1:30pm this Saturday Thursday, May 26 2016
