The name Eugenia just suits her so. She is made from silver and can be worn on a piece of leather or black onyx beads. She is quite large about 10cm long and is just one of those pieces that stay with you. I haven’t taken mine off.

Chunky unwanted gold chains were threaded on to a strand of black garnets. J’adore !!!!!!

This angel cameo waited a long time for someone to fall in love with it. You see I kept it hidden away. Briony came into the shop looking for something special to commemorate her new start. Jane showed her a selection of cameos and Briony fell in love with the angel cameo. We decided it needed to go into a chunky gold pendant. The oxidised silver chain finishes off the piece beautifully. A very happy ending for the jewel and the jeweller and most important the wearer.

Mia’s current obsession with drawing houses has inspired this delightful silver House ring. Her house drawings look like cute little poker faces. When I showed her the ring she gave me a big knowing smile.

Anna’s friends commissioned this bangle with the three letters of her children’s names on it (M S L). After Anna received the bangle she commissioned me to put the three letters of her friend’s names on the bangle ( J A S ). And you will agree that more is better.

The last 2 months have been back to back commission work of the diamond ring variety. Engagement rings, wedding rings, eternity rings and revamping old rings. Susan commissioned me to revamp her diamond claw rings. This one (and the photo does not do the diamond justice) is for her daughter and I am currently making another one like it for her. This 2 carat diamond sits in a gold cylinder on top a chunky silver band. It’s the sort of ring you wouldn’t be afraid to do the gardening in. Diamonds are good that way. They are as hard as hell and if you pick one with a good cut you get that lovely sparkle. Leading up to the Favourite 5 show there will be a lot sparkle in the form of diamond rings. Black diamonds, champagne diamonds, rough diamonds, diamond crystals and plain white diamonds. Coming soon………..

A very dramatic shot of Darcy Clarke’s light and stool now showing at Ari Jewellery. I have his woven lights at home and they exude so much warmth and calm into a room that I am instantly transported. Darcy and I used to share a Surry Hills studio with 8 other artists back in the nineties so I have watched his work evolve beautifully! See more of his work www.darcyclarke.com
