The second of three new medallion rings coming off the bench Wednesday, Jun 14 2017 

Just one shot doesn’t do the ring justice, photography also fails to communicate the feel, the weight or the brilliance of the gem . . . so plan to visit us on the day of the ‘winter design market’ outside QAGOMA on Saturday July 8, 2017. The other good news is that all our stock is costed at wholesale + GST.

That’s the feedback we adore! 18ct yellow gold with champagne diamonds and the most fantastic large cognac diamond, centrally set.

Replacing a fabulous ring and a new bracelet into the bargain Tuesday, May 30 2017 

Two commissions on an older theme approved today, thanks to one of our most dearest clients . . .

Client and maker certainly in tune with the “universe”. . . Wednesday, Apr 12 2017 

Jennie was given her beautiful (best colour) Aquamarine. When she asked friends they suggested Barbara as a designer and maker. Jennie searched for our contact, called when we were away in Tasmania. After visiting our blog and spending time there – a certain ‘ring’ struck a chord followed by a brief and studio visit to collaboratively design Jennie’s ring.
