It has been a super year for us; happily busy, fantastic beachy weather, fun projects and snippets of time with friends.
It has also been a year of change in Brisbane’s contemporary jewellery scene with my two Brisbane stockists, Fio Contemporary and Stone and Metal, closing their retail outlets to focus on other endeavours. I am tremendously grateful to their owners Matt and Sam for their ongoing support. Their new directions are an excellent step for each of them.
The end of the year is nigh and anyone who has seen my bench will know that cleaning is not my forte. But nor am I a hoarder, and with stock back from the Brisbane stores the piles of treasure in the workshop were starting to make me feel that way.
What’s more, summer is approaching and I have a new collection bubbling away in mind.
Every couple of years I hold a VIP event so that special clients can bring a friend along for the first pick of new gem stock and excellent prices on collection treasures.
It was time.
Time to gather,
time to catch up,
time to make merry,
time to make space,
time for a special sale…
It was an absolute joy to see you all!
