Studio Time March 01 2014

I love working in the shop and catching up with all our new and regular customers. Meeting the people who love the jewellery we showcase is always special.

But…my absolute favourite time of the week is studio day. Being an artist at heart I crave the time where I can shut the door, turn on the radio, fire up the gas torch and start to create.

Here are some recent studio moments….

A project that has been sitting on my bench for a couple of years just waiting for the moment when I actually finish it!

Wire bangle with central jasper stone that a friend from central Queensland gave me last time I visited her

A current commission of a sterling silver ring, in progress. This will be oxidised and have 3 stones set in it…more pics to come

This is what happened when I tried to pick up the ring before it had cooled down!

Progress of this white gold and 1 carat Australian sapphire ring. Soon to be finished…
