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) . . .
