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.

The second large commission to reconfigure how Andrea wears some of her jewellery Thursday, Aug 4 2016 

Barbara broke up numerous wonderful things that just didn’t work . . . she does this a lot of late. I’m sworn not to divulge jeweller’s names – the Tahitian pearl strand never looked so good . . . the two front strung lengths are each removable. Reconstituted emotive material with an eye to handing down.
