inspired by Nature & Art, influenced by client’s taste, we are producing fascinating Designs from contemporary to classical jewellery items, Art Nouveau to Antiquity. Interpretation transforms the initial Inspiration into our own imaginative work - an individual creation - sculptured to emphasize shape and proportion. We combine our designer creativity, technical expertise and highest quality materials to create timeless, uniquely beautiful Wearable Art or rather Micro Sculptures. As manufacturing Jewellers & Designers, Goldsmiths & Diamondsetters we have been producing highest quality Fine Jewellery in an ecologically responsible way for over 30 years. Jewellery manufacture is probably the oldest form of recycling, practiced for millennia as every gram of gold can be re-melted and re-used, even polishing dust. Your piece of jewellery could even contain gold of Aztec crowns.
Our Jewellery can be handed down as heirlooms through generations, lasting longer than cars or computers. For our custom-made jewellery we can remodel inherited jewellery and re-use Client's gold and gemstones. Diamonds are Forever.
We buy Australian Opals directly from a Queensland miner, conflict-free highest quality Russian cut Diamonds and other gemstones from reliable Australian Suppliers, who hand-pick stones with the best brilliance, choosing the best diamonds in every grade according to our client's budget.
We work mainly with hand tools using traditional techniques, conserving power and producing our jewellery in a most sustainable way. Our individual designs, often highly sculptured pieces of art, are our own unique creations, developed and perfected under the microscope.
With pride in our work, we place a lot of emphasis on making each jewellery item appealing from every dimension, even from the back.
We are not limited by a computer program, which is equipped with existing styles only, needing to be sent to a wax extruding machine for casting. We are free to accommodate all kinds of gemstones, not just calibrated sizes with the same shapes and angles. The jewellery we offer cannot easily be reproduced by chain stores.
We assist clients to find the perfect stone for them and set it according to their individual taste and requirements e.g. the gemstone touching the skin for healing purposes.
We invite you to browse our website and online store. You will find a range of different items and styles, including rings, pendants, necklaces, earrings, brooches and many more classically beautiful pieces inspired by nature, people, past and present art and jewellery styles such as Art Nouveau / Neavaux, and our own taste for beauty. Please contact us, if you would like to discuss custom made jewellery.
We are not limited to traditional ornamental jewellery. Our unique products include delicately woven Italian Wire Mesh bookmarks with personalized, engraved initial plaques as birthday or wedding presents. We also produce historical jewellery replicas, including authentic medieval pieces according to photographs of actual discovered antique items or take on special commissions such as our Russian Viking Needle Case Pendant, our Ouroboros Ringor a 13th century Betrothal Ring with interlocked hands.
In addition to offering our own hand-crafted jewellery, we are suppliers of highly polished natural Cow Horns sourced from Germany - an essential element of a medieval re-enactors kit as Viking Drinking Horns. Our other high quality German products are Jeweller's Soldering Torches , that can also be used to make glass beads.
Fortunately we found an Australian company adapting an LP Gas Regulator to allow for a pressure setting of 600KPa that the German Precision LP Gas Torch can work to its maximum capacity offering an extremely precise and stable flame for finest soldering.
Our Business Philosophy
Quite often we see ourselves as problem solvers, trying to find a solution for the nearly impossible.
We believe in ethical business and don’t overcharge. Profit is not everything. We are happy, when our clients are happy, especially if our clients keep coming back and have become our friends.
We still always try first to source our gemstones from local Australian suppliers and support those, who served us well for over 25 years, despite competition having become fierce due to Internet prices undercutting normal shop prices and even wholesale prices.
They might not be able to offer the cheapest prices, but best, hand-picked quality, cut not too high, not too low with colours as desired or excellent radiance (sparkle). We want our clients to wear their jewellery with pride and the knowledge they received a very special Masterpiece of Art! After the world financial crisis we as Australian manufacturing jewellers lowered our prices, to adjust to our client's needs and budgets, support the Australian gemstone dealers and the Australian economy. Win Win Win situation.
And if clients are satisfied, they might remember us, come back and might recommend us to others. More Win.
Since 2003 we have been donating our time to hand-finish the medals for the now 18 race categories of the annual Tathra wharf to wave Ocean Swim in January. In this way we are promoting Tathra as a wonderful tourist destination, and give the winners something to remember, as well as an attractive and versatile piece of jewellery to wear as pendant or key ring. A further proportion of our profits is donated to international charity organisations such as Oxfam, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, Mouth and Foot painting artists, UNHCR, Doctors sans Frontiers and others.
We hope you enjoy our webpage as much as we enjoy creating our jewellery.
Please keep recommending it to your friends and inform us of any malfunctioning.

Boomerang Bags is a community driven initiative tackling plastic pollution.
Dedicated community groups, schools, businesses and volunteers get together to make re-usable ‘Boomerang Bags’ using recycled or donated materials, which will be offered to shoppers to ‘Borrow and Bring Back’ instead of single-use plastic bags, which are on average used for only 12 minutes and then thrown away.
Creating opportunities for Indigenous, Disadvantaged, Unemployed or Migrants to become involved in a meaningful activity, make friends, learn skills and up-cycle materials to be re-used - reducing plastic pollution one bag at a time!
