Lovely email to Barbara (and Malcolm) received today from the USA Tuesday, Apr 24 2018 

SUBJECT: Look close – my FIRST BH treasure…and so it began…

Ah yes, those amazing, gorgeous, jaw dropping lace dish enamel earrings are still a fave and dear to my heart. Remember how I stalked you, and these found their way to Perth and now Texas???  You had to trust your Intuition that I was really out there and could provide a home for these beauties…what proved to be the first in my BH collection.  They enjoyed a lovely evening at an event for Jack’s school last Saturday. My “spring thing” ring is clipped out, but it had fun, too.

Sending love your way and so very happy I know you in this world.

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) . . .

I haven’t posted any of the ‘thank you’ cards received for ages now Sunday, Mar 4 2018

Commissioned hinged cuff with baroque lattice pattern © Bh Friday, Sep 29 2017 

This is a previous pattern used on Trisha’s ‘big-up ring’ of 2013 which we are making again with smoky quartz . . . so this is a newly developed hinged cuff as a partner to her new ring. I like the smart use of the pattern again and the design resolve of the gem placements.

“When you wish upon a star . . . Saturday, Sep 16 2017 

Makes no difference who you are . . .

Anything your heart desires will come to you”

Our first commissioned ‘Stargazer’ ring for Jesse Roebuck: Medallion Ring © Bh ‘Stargazer’ style Diamond, cape colour rose cut SI 1=0.68ct graver set, solid two part fused 18ct yellow Gold. 

“When a star is born
They possess a gift or two
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true”

Someone out there will want this designer’s suite of hand-built studio furniture c1974 Friday, Jul 21 2017 

We hope they go to someone deserving and in need of them.

They were commissioned and made to my design for my studio in 1974 by Gary May, he later became Queensland Government Architect. They were for ‘Fairdinkum Graphics’ 1975–1978 and have been in storage since, holding my huge graphics library that couldn’t be accommodated at home.

Originally in yellow laminex with matching knobs, I overlaid white laminex in the early 1990s and replaced the knobs with white ones. I’ll try to find the yellow knobs in storage somewhere or replace the white ones for yellow again. I’ve spent two days taking off the white laminex and glue, it has come up a treat. Solid oregon pine throughout with bronze bevelled glass on all the outer shelves. Lovely wide flat plan draws at the base of the two units.

Each bookcase unit is in two pieces and I want $600.00 per unit = $1,200.00 and I want $300.00 for the matching table. Selling the lot at a dealer’s buy price – $1,500.00 – as soon as possible.
My mobile is 0431 464 470.

Bookcase base 1480mm W x 730mm D x 1020mm H – Bookcase top 1430mm W 1270mm H x 350mm D + Table 1770mm L x 860mm W x 750mm H. Please pass on to folk you might think deserving?
