Seen here on the left is Josh’s © Bh ‘Mobius’ style wide band. Lovely couple, lovely commissions from a large extended family who are studio favourites.

Barbara calls this her “dandy’ ring, large oval dress ring in 18ct yellow gold going to the Mayo Festival coming up next month at St Margarets, Ascot in Brisbane.

Barbara’s ‘Lace Dish’ has proved to be a constant winner with commission clients and our retailer’s clients, here is the most recent one off the bench Thursday, Apr 7 2016

Barbara is respected amongst her international peers as ‘Ms Texture’. There is a delicate balance between the high carat metal used, the lace impression that pierces the surface of the gold, the sparse use of white enamel fusion, the unique arrangement of quality gems set into the dish and the fine shouldered shank.

Wedding rings for two young creatives (that made us feel young again) Tuesday, Dec 22 2015 

Marty  commissioned Phoebe’s engagement ring from the studio and they were both interested in our own wedding bands. Both Barbara and I had dates and time inside our rings and a few years later Barbara cut the rings and reversed the stamps to the outside of both rings. Our clients loved the stamping idea and selected the shaped bands and supplied the messages. I’ve processed the two movement shots that normally would be thrown away . . . just to offer some distraction and not show the world their ring’s actual content.

The studio has completed three of the four rings in the set, two collected yesterday Friday, Nov 20 2015 

I have posted on this commission before, it is featured on our 2015 commissioner’s report also this year. Every diamond ring from her earlier life was scrapped and Barbara’s funky version of our ‘London Bridge’ design was chosen for her re-styled engagement ring (centre). The set is now extended with these two ‘Channel Set’ wedding rings, remade using all of her existing diamonds. This type of commission can invigorate a person’s future journey while retaining intimate material worn close for so many years . . . restyled . . . intimate . . . made fashionable again . . . future proof.

I have three other shots – onetwothree.
