I recently had the opportunity to create a ring for the very person who cut the sapphires it featured.  I'm sure I'm not the only jeweller who gets a bit of a kick out of creating something so special for someone else in the very same industry.  An industry where there are so many talented designers, and particularly in the smaller circles of Australian - contemporary - hand made.  To say I was honoured to be chosen for the task was just the beginning of my happy level.  

So when Pebble Sprout sent me these stunning Queensland sapphires that she cut, and said something along the lines of - make me a ring, kind of like this, and kind of like that - well I was positively excited about how it was going to turn out.

We were even fortunate enough to obtain an image of the very claim these stunning sapphires came from!  Graves Hill in Queensland to be exact.  What a rare opportunity to see the progress and process of a truly Australian made piece.
