We were very happy to bump-in our studio stock for this one day event, well attended even though there were other events close by: The CBD had a “Brisbane climate march”, An ‘etsy’ craft market in the City Hall. Heiser Gallery had an opening for “Bandwagon” showing Robert Moore, Reg Mombassa, Jeff Raglus, Stephen Mok. A private “baby shower” that drew some of our regular clients. Certain hard core mates showed up after those events as well . . .
Very thrilled with all the sales and visitors, many who have also set down our studio sale dates as well. (Sat December 12 and Sun December 13). Happy with the cross postings / likes via Facebook and Instagram and thanks to K.T. & Karl for sending a Julius pizza over for our lunch, so we managed to keep up a dual presence at our stand.

Just an advanced notice and the last June date we want you to drop into your diary. The studio is on track to finish all the makes by this Friday, then I have some time to complete all the imaging, pricing and documentation. The entire series of rings, pendants, necklaces and brooches are all featuring ‘porcelain shards’ found on and around our property in Tunbridge, Tasmania. This should not come as a surprise as Barbara has used found elements as the set “gems” in works since the mid – nineteen eighties. Buttons, beads, glass, wood, steel, other jewellery have all been recycled and incorporated but this show is purely Tasmanian based with antique relics which the earth has given up to us.
Elements from our range of high carat and unique gem stone jewellery from numerous © Bh ‘styles’ are also showing in our cabinets at Hobart and Evandale and via the Handmark web.

It is always a delight when old “Maker’s Mark” clients from Melbourne resurface, we did numerous commissions and sold from our range over a twenty six year period but never held their client’s names and addresses. Rosemary’s phone call led to an email which led to this remake of her husband’s interlocking ring set, this time in 9ct rose gold. They are chuffed, I’m chuffed to have their contact details now and another commissioner back into the fold.

No task to large or small . . .
“I am looking for a moon and stars pendant in silver to remember my Mum . . . and I am having no luck! A friend of ours has one of your lovely bracelets and last weekend I was in the Art Gallery shop in Brisbane and I saw some of your jewellery and I wondered if you have something like this available? I’m afraid I couldn’t afford to commission – anything large so sorry if I am wasting your time.” “I would like something similar to the photo enclosed – in theme but doesn’t have to be in style – in silver. I understand if this is not something you would like to – or do – take on. Thank you for your time and have a nice Easter.”
We were happy to comply with instructions, exchanged more emails and quote. The end result was created at studio wholesale – Cresent moon pendant as image supplied – diamond eye in Argentium 935 Silver with polished finish to fit the chain (supplied).
