Being a professionally trained Goldsmith, Christine offers maximum value to a full range of jewellery services:
- Creating one-of-a-kind jewellery artworks
- Incorporating client’s stones and metals in commission pieces
- Repairing and servicing jewellery
- Restringing and refurbishing pearl necklaces
With over 40 years experience as a creative Goldsmith, Christine carries a wonderful selection of one-of-a-kind jewellery in 18ct gold and sterling silver. Her love of colourful gemstones gives each an individual character. These are ideal for very personal birthday and anniversary gifts, weddings and special treats. Her work is highly collectable and of proven Museum quality.
The setting of a client’s stones (recently a beautiful 6ct emerald) to optimal effect (as a magnificent ring) using gold provided (inherited rings, broken chain, an ear stud, heavy gold bracelet) gives new and dramatic life to sentimental material, rendering it functional today and ideally suited to handing down through the family.
Repairing and Servicing
With a deep understanding of her metals, Christine can advise on maintaining the value in your jewellery through repair or alteration. Even a good clean and polish can help to restore a piece to past glory!
Pearl strings should be restrung every couple of years to avoid breakage and loss of material (cf the car service). The addition of extra elements – gold rings, coloured stones, interesting spacers - can transform a simple string to an exciting necklace at very little cost!
Traditionally, German “Wertarbeit” has been about delivering long-term value through high quality materials and workmanship; this ethic has driven Christine’s long career. Be your investment a few hundred or many thousands of dollars, she promises to deliver an expert service based on a thorough understanding of her craft.
We look forward to imparting maximum VALUE into the creation of YOUR special piece of heirloom jewellery.
