Big is Beautiful

Especially when it comes to bling!

I am starting to feel a whole lot better, and as I do I am getting more and more excited about getting to work on some fabulous new jewellery.

Perfect for spring will be some big bright gem stone pieces. Here's a sneak peak at a few of the star attractions.

First up a pear shaped double rose cut amethyst with a vivid purple colour. This beauty is 3.809 carats. For this one I am seeing a pendant with a bit of a spin, to take full advantage of the double cut.

Next we have a beautiful round brilliant cut topaz in a pretty sky blue. For this 2.642 carat stunner I'm thinking a bit of an ice queen inspiration.

And last but not least (rest assured there are plenty more where these come from) a very pretty pair of round brilliant cut topaz in a vibrant peony colour. This pair weigh in at a respectable 4.501 carats and of course are destined to become some ear bling.

So there you have it, I'm looking forward to bringing you some glorious one of a kind spring creations soon.

Working on something very special

In the past weeks most of my energy has been going towards a very special new creation, however this one is not jewellery. In fact since starting on this I have actually had little or no desire to make jewellery at all...

Yes, that's right, I'm pregnant! Our 2nd baby is due in Feb 2010. Our little work-in-progress is currently known as Peanut2 (no prize for guessing what our first was called).

At almost 14 weeks I am starting to feel less sick and maybe starting to get back a little energy. I have also started to think about some new jewellery pieces, so hopefully will be back at the bench soon.

So watch this space, we will have the grand unveiling of our new 'Masterpiece' early in the New Year!

Our baby is growing up

Today we have reached a very special milestone. Our baby boy is two today, time really has flown by so quickly!

Happy 2nd Birthday my little darling, be kind to Mummy and Daddy, make two terrific rather than terrible!

Take me back to the tropics!

Some of you may have noticed that I have been absent for a while. Today as the wind whips at my house and the rain falls I wonder why it is that we flew back to Melbourne yesterday. But alas the real world beckons and we have a living to earn, so now I just fondly reminisce about our trip to Far North Queensland and remember the lovely 29 degree celcius days.

I think I could get used to having a 'dry season' rather than winter, not so sure how I'd do in the wet though. This is the lovely 4 mile beach in Port Douglas.

Hmmmm... where to next? Definately time to start planning another holiday I think!
