Here are three new jewellery pieces which are now in our online store. This might be the last jewellery for a while as I’m doing a bit of painting again and thinking about making hats and paper flowers. GJ is working on a new sculpture, which is always exciting for me – I love to watch the progress. You can see his new website here.

GJ recently finished a new clock-like piece. I love the way it rings a bell every 6.4 minutes. The video can be seen here.

I LOVE this little oil lamp my beloved GJ Pearson made many years ago. For some reason we haven’t lit it in a really long time. So, now we are using it every night and it’s delightful!

Spent an afternoon recently at Vanity Fair on Fort Street. Cases and cases of extraordinary items to peruse. Hours of fun!

I love to watch GJ work. How he translates what he imagines into an exquisite object or painting is astounding and never fails to delight me. Here’s a pic of a work in progress.
