Well after a short and rather lovely newborn cuddly time away from the bench, I'm happy to say I'm ready to start finding (or should I say scrounging and grasping for) time to make beautiful jewels once again.
If you've been thinking of having a bespoke piece made, or even simply inquiring about the ins and outs of the process, now is the time to get in touch!
Speaking of lucky, here's a super special commission finished just before my maternity leave. It is an engagement and wedding ring set made to fit together, with the unusual combination of featuring a stunning Japanese Akoya black pearl, custom cut Australian parti sapphire (fossicked by the clients themselves!) and a scattering of Australian Argyle white diamonds. All set in 18ct white gold, with a hint of pure fine Australian native gold (again fossicked by the clients).
There are some great progress shots of how this one came together on Facebook, check it out!
