So!My first year as a legit retail business and Co-Vid hit! I fared really well actually. I think it helped that I was still in start-up mode… the shop had only been open for five months. I’ve been self-employed and under-employed for 9 years so I’m used to living on low earnings and being resourceful. […]
Here is an excellent wrap up of what has happened over the past couple of months.
A little video I made. 🙂

My new ring is named for one of the most iconic cities of the Art Deco period, Manhattan.
Intertwined twisted cords representing harmonious, embracing love is the earliest of jewellery designs.
Finally I have finally joined the Gold and Silversmiths Guild of Australia! I have known about the guild for many years and respected what they stood for but it has never been the right time until now. Most of my career I have been an employee and used the company stamps, I didn’t have my […]
The Fleur-de-lis is historically associated with French royalty, and is an old medieval symbol.
This design was requested by my best client . . .
Researching the history of jewellery design, this style of ring really stood out to me as something I would like to re-create in my own style.
