Barbara sees this commission less as a piece of jewellery, more as a portrait of her collaborator Friday, Jun 14 2019 

Eloise collected this adjustable length ‘seven charms’ sautoir made with various unique elements which stand for lost or remembered jewels, new specifics and items from our collection. Made with 18ct gold in rose, white and yellow as well as silver, bronze, Iolite, onyx and pearls. It’s first outing was in Sydney on election night 2019 with many of our friends and clients. Earlier design documentation.

The last five components were modelled in wax and back from casters next Tuesday Friday, Mar 29 2019 

Barbara started the week melting 18ct white gold to start the hand made star wire chain process, three days later she was hand carving the five elements to be cast and finished, some with gems to be set. We are certain that by next week’s end we will have finished this very personal replacement piece.

Friends in-the-know update their jewellery because they are continuously improving their look Wednesday, Mar 20 2019 

It pays to be able to just swing in when in town, anytime day or evening.

 

Commissions come from everywhere, anywhere – simple conversations that friends have, in earshot Wednesday, Mar 20 2019 

Barbara and Anna swim regularly at the local pool, have early coffee and do writing exercises together.

This recycled gold and gem rejig of Vicki’s wedding ring set came about over a chance, counter exchange.

My daughter’s 40th birthday gift commissioned from all her friends Thursday, Mar 7 2019 

The call came in from Andi (Andrea McDonald), “what piece of jewellery would Lil like?” Barbara was able to steer it in the right direction . . .

“Just had a quick read of your email, lovely plans! re: jewellery

https://ambersceats.com/product/teale-earrings/#.XFFGEc8zZUc

I know Lil loves this idea.. a single gold edged shell, as a pendant. She’s mentioned it a few times. I think I could make up something similar if you all like it… I’d have to find a good shell but we do have some in the collection – just have to hunt it down. What do you think?” The rest just fell into place . . .

The studio produced an 18ct yellow gold sculptured double sided mount with jump ring and small hinged gold punched disc, a far greater upgrade to the teale-earrings originally discussed. There were more presents, Lil hosted everyone for their staycation at the Calile on James Street, last Saturday night.

Happy Birthday all over again Darling . . .
