Two mid-year (jeweller to the lost) sale dates to mark in your diary Thursday, Jun 14 2018 

Every mid-year the GOMA Winter Design Market happens, this year its on Saturday July 28th 2018. The combined marketing by every stall holder brings a multitude of new customers to the market day.

This year we are breaking with tradition and opening our studio mid year for commission clients and their friends, so please take notice!

Friday evening the 29th June 2018 for the early birds with some bubbles to share AND Saturday the 30th June from 10:00am – 3:00pm for stock items at wholesale and below. As at Christmas each year we will be making new pieces at whim (at silly prices) . . . necklaces and earrings are planned.

This a chance for our dedicated clients to beat the rush at the end of July! Two sets of two trays are priced down and priced already . . . new ‘curved bar’ necklaces, new ‘bar and ring’ necklaces with added features and ‘five strand bead bracelets’ with added features are priced to go.

Recently commissioned wedding rings for our dear friends Thursday, Jun 14 2018 

They are so private . . . I could go on forever about their attention to detail, their secret plans to get themselves hitched, the way each group of friends were told after the event. We call them our ‘dynamic duo’ and we were thrilled to be part of the ongoing parade of activity. My shot is just the pair of solid handmade textured rings and Barbara’s shot is her presentation, where she went into the garden and selected two different leaves to denote them ‘turning over a new leaf’.

Most of you know we publicise the names of our clients, word of mouth is everlasting but in this instance and because everyone had to be told in their own good time I have sat on this announcement. Last night we received this email text:

Hey lovelies!

Hope all’s well!

Just letting you know you can go live with the wedding band post/s whenever you like.

All family/friends are on board with the news!

This is fun – two shots from friends and clients taken at restaurants Tuesday, Jun 5 2018 

Jean Pierre Khoury, Janet Gibson, Lee Primmer & Warwick Anderson all in Sydney and out to lunch when someone had the bright idea – “hey! we are all wearing Barby’s things!” Off with the lot and snapped a pic and messaged it on to us . . . 11 commissioned pieces of Jeweller to the Lost.

Out to dinner at the Vine recently to celebrate our friends wedding, everyone took off their wedding rings for this shot by Brendan Gaffney with Jacqueline Armitstead, Trish & John Honeywill, KT & Karl, Barbara Heath and mal E . . .

Her engagement ring re-made by Jeweller to the Lost Saturday, Apr 7 2018 

With great sensitivity these commissions start with a wish and end with a triumph . . . and always lead to more commissions.

The Cobb design and the final chunky yellow and white gold ring: Tuesday, Mar 27 2018 

It is easier for repeat clients to just go-for-it . . . it should be easier for new contacts also. Our blog reflects the commission process and the long list of requests turned into reality.

Showing the ‘thank you’ card before publishing the two wedding rings Saturday, Mar 24 2018 

They are so over the moon with their wedding rings, Barbara had them sitting on two leaves on the desktop when they arrived . . . “turning over a new leaf” was the presentation theme. Now the rings are secreted away until after their discrete event – no one knows its happening so I can’t whisper a thing nor show you the pics.

Back to the Jeweller to the Lost studio tomorrow Monday, Feb 26 2018 

Great break in Tasmania, wonderful clients waiting and studio visitors already. Barbara sold this ‘gem cluster’ Ring last Saturday during a commission meeting:
