Bh-SculpturedGoldRing-W

A very early carved ring by Barbara, I’m surprised how many pieces (commissions) escaped without photo documentation. This is from 2005 and is listed in the ‘commissions-the lot’ list. So reminds me of early Han Chinese carving, clouds & spirits working their magic. Settings checked and the usual clean . . .

Our 25th wedding anniversary – and 32 years since we met Thursday, Dec 13 2018 

A wonderful soul who we have since lost touch with, Hilary Dimon was commissioned to do both our natal charts – to find the most suitable time for us to merge our planets back in 1993. We had chosen our location, Sans Souci at North Stradbroke Island but somehow could not fix the date. Hilary reported back with a question “do you have anything against the 13th?” No, the 13th is fine. “OK well 3am is the optimum time”… We did have a problem with 3am however. . . . “ok, next best is at 11:00pm on the dot on the Sunday evening the 12th?” And so it was done . . .

Being both so interested in symbology and ritual we spent much time devising a ceremony that would have meaning for us. We then took twelve dear friends to the island to witness our little ritual under the stars. That team then returned to our home the following day to set the scene for a celebration party for 220 guests.

Just received our copy of Christine Erratt’s new book featuring our Mace Thursday, Nov 22 2018 

The Mace was designed by Michael Bryce and his team who collaborated with the Jeweller to the Lost studio in 2005. Barbara and Juan-Luis were the perfect partners to effect this realisation.
