Eudialyte and Sterling Silver Cuff Bangle

Eudialyte Cuff Bangle

Vera came to my workshop and browsed through my gemstone collection, choosing two eudialyte stones for me to create with – one for her, and one for her partner.

This cuff is for Vera. She wanted some subtle detail if I thought it would suit the stone.

Vera was very happy with the end result, and so was I!

This cuff bracelet was a one-off remodelling job I did for a lovely client using an old cuff which was precious to her but unfortunately broken. It’s a good reminder to be careful when putting on your cuff bangles not to squeeze or stretch them and over-stress the metal!

Turquoise and Chrysocolla Sterling Silver Cuff Bangle

The existing stones were (probably) turquoise, and the addition of chrysocolla adds interest and texture to the piece.

It was great working with Juliet, and we discovered quite a few uncanny coincidences that made the experience even more special! Thanks!

Lenka Klikacova is a fashion designer, and she contacted me to see if I could make her some silver palm wrap bracelets for her Spring/Summer 2016 fashion show.

I hadn’t heard of palm wraps before, but they are a thing, and I was happy to create the ones that Lenka had in her mind!

Lenka’s designs are sleek and have great shape, so the simplicity of the silver band really worked well.

Matthew was looking for a gift for his wife, and he got in touch to see if I could create a bangle similar to this one, but with some gemstones included.

My lovely client, Pauline, wanted a ring created for her daughter’s 40th birthday, with and opal and two peridots which are the birthstones of her daughter’s three children.

I got in some tiny peridots, and we designed the ring together.

I recently created this custom made sterling silver cuff, which depicts an Aboriginal symbol representing travelling (with the circles representing a resting place/watering hole).

My client was pleased with the rustic branch or sand drawing-like nature I gave the symbol, and he has given it to his friend to remind her of her connection to her home while she goes ‘walkabout’. I really enjoy making meaningful pieces for people!

Sterling Silver Attached Bracelet and Ring Set

I was asked to make this custom piece to suit someone with a dark vampish nature. My customer gave me the general picture of how he wanted the piece to look, and I added some finishing touches!

He very sensibly sent me a photocopy of the hand that it will be adorning, with measurements added. Perfect!

Down from the Mountain

The Mountain Kids are a fantastic brother and sister team, aged 5 and 7, who have their own great JuniorMadeIt shop on MadeIt.com.au.

Mountain Kids Creations

I got to know of them as I have become fast online friends with their lovely mum (Kylie from Raw Toys), and after checking out their newly opened shop, Mountain Kids Creations, and the lovely goodies within, I commissioned them to make me this divine rainbow necklace.

Rainbow Necklace

I just love it! When I’m not wearing it, it hangs in my study and brings me joy each day!

The Mountain Family came to my place the other day, as they were interested to see what a silversmith at work looks like. It was such a pleasure to meet them in real life! I gave them a tour of my workshop and a bit of a demonstration. A few days later, and what did I find in the mail, but a lovely thank you card, and this divine bracelet.

Rainbow Bracelet

I truly feel blessed to know such a lovely bunch of people. Do pop over and check out The Mountain Kid’s shop, and if you find yourself a little something, you’ll be helping them support the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, too. Thanks, Mountain Kids, you rock!!

Sterling Silver Twisted Chain Bracelet 1

Sterling Silver Twisted Chain Bracelet

My grandmother commissioned me to make this sterling silver twisted chain bracelet after she saw the one I made for myself a while back.  The links join together in a very precise pattern, so it was very zen to make!  There is no catch, the bracelet simply rolls onto your wrist.  It is very comfortable, and feels lovely rolling up and down your arm.

Sterling Silver Twisted Chain Bracelet 1

Each link is individually soldered, so the piece gets hot very quickly and you can only solder a couple of links at a time.  It lived on my workbench, being made in between other things, for many weeks!  Lucky Granny is patient..

Linked Plate Bracelet – Squid and Seaglass

Another of the projects for my goldsmithing course was to create a linked plate bracelet.  I seem to be working with a very marine theme these days, and this was no exception:

Using a squid as my inspiration, and seaglass as a finishing touch to the clasp, I thought this bracelet turned out beautifully!
