I have started to get the Christmas spirit flowing with my annual pilgrimage
to the stunning studio of Jeweller to the Lost.
And another Bh treasure was added to my jewellery collection,
a ring with an iridescent pāua shell set in silver,
shimmering softly with the colors of the ocean ~ blues, greens, purples and yellows.
The shell is soft to the touch from repeated tumbles in the sand and water. It has slight ripples on it like the patterns left in the sand as the waves lapse over it. Pāua or abalone shell represents love, beauty, gentleness, caring, comfort, peacefulness, delight, solace, sand, water ~ what beautiful qualities to carry with me.
There were so many beautiful pieces that I loved,
especially the Bh Signature necklaces similar to this Bib Gem Necklace.
”Often some of the best designs come from simply using components that are to hand. Ray Norman described my Signature Bracelets as having that ‘cobbled together’ style. I love the element of serendipitous contrast in form and texture, with some eclectic detail but never too much going on! These Signature Bib Gem necklets are large enough to dress things up but still lightweight enough to wear all day! The first one I made for myself with a surprise find of antique Jet beads from Barry Smith’s cache.”

I must start saving now for one of these pieces at the 2012 Studio visit!
