Mother and Son looking to re-jig a family hoard – a few repairs first once everything was sighted and bagged ready for job bags in 2018. ” Barbara, is it possible to make this quite larger for me to wear”?

Our last job to be collected before holidays, tomorrow . . . HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE!

Wow, I’ll let the graphics tell the story . . . thanks Rahul & Donna, Michael & Suhanya for friendships going back to Paddington days.


Four days post the 2017 studio sale we are still selling as people call and email the studio Thursday, Dec 14 2017 

We have experienced our ‘best’ ever studio sale this year – in fact, this year I have only had 5 postal invites returned from our snail mail commissioner’s report. It does show how dedicated our customers are . . . it does also reflect on our seriously considered price points. It also shows that contemporary wearable design, generous amounts of high carat metal and our championing of real gems sets us apart from the easy-to-buy disposable high street market.


Studio closes on the 20th December and we will reopen around the end of February 2018.

The 2017 commissioner’s report and studio sale invite went out snail-mail to our clients in the last three days Wednesday, Nov 29 2017 

We have prepared these personal reports since 1989 and each client is mentioned in the ‘commissioner’s list – the lot’ which is the second link down in the blog links. The downloadable .pdf is here

Please make a note of the dates SAT DEC 9 and SUN DEC 10 2017

We need a singles day in Australia but the NBN just couldn’t cope Wednesday, Nov 15 2017

Gary knows our styles off by heart – he wanted a textured ‘saddle’ ring in oxidised 925 Silver with a selection of our © Bh hand stamped symbols, one set with a small Ruby. He calls it his “symbol” ring . . .

Christmas time preparation brings out clients who visit the studio with commissions, questions and requests for cleaning and re-jigs Friday, Nov 10 2017 

We take these requests on with pleasure . . .
