Summer at Arbor

Hello out there!

We are warming up in little old Brunswick and getting excited about Christmas time. I have locked in my traditional gingerbread baking day and am exercising furiously in anticipation of all the yummy treats I will eat come December :)

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about some of the pieces that our wonderful Arbor artists have been creating, particularly some lovely engagement/commitment/special occasion jewellery. We take great pride in supporting local talent who are designing and manufacturing in Australia, often right here in Brunswick.

Gretta Hazel filigree solitaire - 9c yellow gold and white sapphire

Ellinor Mazza - 18c white gold and 3 diamonds

Ellinor Mazza - 9c white gold and 5 yellow/gold sapphires

Nadine Treister - soft faceted 9c white gold band

Susan Ewington - 9c white gold textured band and 9c white gold/18c yellow gold with Ceylon sapphire

Ellinor Mazza various bands in 9c rose, yellow and white gold 
(18c gold, platinum, titanium and sterling silver also available)

Arbor is owned and staffed by qualified and experienced contemporary jewellers who can offer advice and design consultations to help you find your ideal piece.

We hope to see you very soon!

Arbor gossip....

Hey lovelies,

Well the gossip is...we have some new stock - woo!

I personally love new stuff and this is some pretty cool stuff.

Firstly, I would like to welcome on board Kerry from Luminous Glass Studio ALL the way over in East Brunswick. Kerry has delivered a selection of her one-off glass bowls in a range of stunning colours. At $65 each I'm sure Kerry will be firing up that kiln again very soon.

We also welcome Rebecca Kim, a lovely Melbourne jeweller who makes amazing and intricate pieces using Japanese Hana-Fuda playing cards. You will need to see these for yourself to fully appreciate the detail involved. Pictured are brooch and two rings.

See you soon!
