A big shout out to all the creative people working late tonight …..or now Monday morning😬As hard as it will be to get up in the morning it was totally worth it! This is the stage where I blackened everything before a polish and setting then polishing again tomorrow. I’m changing the saying to: If you love your job you’ll never NOT work a day in your life I live and breath my job/trade/passion every second of my life and my mind never stops ticking. I totally get what that original saying means though! But there’s a great deal of blood, sweat and tears and late nights and burning the candle at both ends and I love it! I feel very fortunate to have a job where I make pretty shiny things that make people happy! That’s what drives me #workinglate #creativepeople #driven #lovemyjob #greatjob #handcrafted

I charge way more to make these new but this ones going for $195 plus post.

I don’t want to know how many more grey hairs I got for setting these!! 14 stones set yesterday and today😬 Teeth clenching work! It is probably the most stressful but at the same time satisfying parts of my work. The adrenalin, nerves and focus is intense!! Phew! Unfortunately two small fatalities but luckily had replacements. Sometimes you just can’t predict how a stone is going to behave during setting. It takes everything out of me! I need a holiday # # #satisfaction #setting #lovemyjob #handcraft #stress #finished #jewellerymaking

Just wanted to let everyone know that custom orders usually need 3-4 months to complete. I am a “one man band” and work within school hours 4-5 days a week and any other hours I can beg, borrow and steal. I also commit myself to supplying three beautiful galleries so that means I’m always working on many pieces at a time. School holidays are also a time I don’t get a lot done. Thanks to all my wonderful patient clients who have and are having me make special jewellery for them Time is always appreciated️ #customjewellery #busymum #lovemywork

Had a great day yesterday at the Hobart Lapidary Club Annual Rock Auction!! My first win was a big bag of lemons🍋🍋🍋🍋 I also won a stunning little pair of faceted Tektites/ Moldavite from CZECH Republic and the box says they are 14,700,000 million years old! And my most wanted win, a box of Parrot Wing Jasper/Chrysocolla/Azurite/Quartz from Mexico. It is said to be the Goddess Stone and is apparently very rare! I just got it because I liked the colour and it will be very exciting to cut. #rockauction #hobartlapidaryclub #lapidary #naturalgemstone #tektite #moldavite #parrotwing #chrysocolla #azurite #jasper #quartz #scored #

Lovely mint green Chrysocolla with Malachite, Cuprite & Quartz earrings. Quality rough stone from Arizona, cut and polished by me:) hooks are very short at the top so the stones sit snug to the earlobe. These weigh about 6 grams each. Very comfortable. Not too heavy but you can feel you’re wearing them. Quite light for their size. Set in Sterling Silver which is hammer marked and blackened in the deepest areas. I’m going to have to make myself a pair sometime! #chrysocolla #cuprite #malachite #quartz #earrings #arizonaminerals #madeintasmania #handcraftedjewellery #green #

This Blue Pearl and Diamond ring is another little beauty that also just arrived at its new home in California. Wow my jewellery has traveled further than I have For a lovely lady who chose this stunningly rich combo of Rose and Yellow gold together. The colour of the A Grade pearl is so captivating and vibrant against these metals! The blue diamond is perfect with this pearl! I just wish I could have captured its sparkle in the photos! It was a joy to work with my client and take the time to choose the right pearl for her! And a big Happy Birthday!The team at Eyris Blue Pearls were so helpful! How lucky I am to have the job of creating such very special pieces for such awesome people!! #madewithlove #handcraftedjewellery #handcraftedjewelry #bluepearl #bluediamond #rosegold #yellowgold #madeintasmania #australianmadejewellery #️ #rings

SALE!! I totally love this pendant!! I would love to keep it but I would also like to find it a new home! This is one of three I made in the same design yet each one being hand crafted meant they were a slightly different. Set with a Center stone of White Topaz (unknown origin) The domed grey metal is titanium. It has a Matt brushed surface and some little blue/purple areas left from heating. They do show up well in these photos but it’s predominantly grey. The setting and outer rim and claws is Sterling silver. A beautiful contrast to the titanium! There is a very fine rim of 9ct Rose Gold around the stone. The small tube bail can take chains, cords etc up to 3.5mm thickness. The setting is held in place with three small claws which you can see at the back. I left the back of the titanium quite rough and left most of its heated colour. Really lovely!! 47mm including bail. 41mm wide. Was originally $600, now $395 plus post. Included grey silk cord #sale #titanium #topaz #pendant #jewellerysale #silver #handcraftedjewellery #australianmadejewellery

Something else I’ve been up to….this heavily included Killiecrankie Diamond/Topaz has been sitting on my bench winking at me for a couple of months begging to be made into something special. At first I ignored it as the inclusions actually annoyed me but then one day I fell in love with them and this ring evolved. It’s nearly ready for adoption:) #inclusion #silverring #ring #topaz #killiecrankie #falleninlove #handcrafted #handcraftedjewellery #handcraftedjewelry #madeintasmania

The finished Varascite pendant. The rough slice of high quality Varascite originated from Utah USA. Another one I cut myself. Some very nice spiderwebbing going on here. Much lovelier in real life though! Love the contrasting greens with an almost taupe colour through areas. I’m very inspired by Victorian Antique hens the silver granules but in my own chunky style. This ones now for sale @peninsulagalleries Red Hill, Vic. # #madeintasmania #pendant #variscite #cabochon #handcrafted #handcraftedjewellery @laurenharrisjewellery

This custom ring was so awesome to make! Adapted from a similar design, my client chose these two Tasmanian Topaz, the smaller one is a Killiecrankie Diamond. We used heirloom gold from her grandfather! The rich 18ct a stunning contrast to the silver and the white stones. Oxidised for extra depth. The gold wraps all the way around the ring. I love Recycling family jewellery. Creating a piece which will continue to be enjoyed for many more years! Thank you so much Laura! Hope you are enjoying your new treasure️

Lune River Fern Trunk Fossil Pendant ready for the Mesozoic Jewellery & Art Exhibition to be held at The Goldsmiths Gallery, San Remo Victoria as part of the Creative Gippsland Arts Festival opening this Saturday! My creation is made of two species of Lune River fern trunk, imprints of fossil shell from the late Carboniferous period and texturing from Jurassic Dolorite Rock. All four from Tasmania! It will be accompanied by the book Lune River Fossil Fern Trunks By Ross Jones. Ross has been very generous in sharing his wealth of knowledge with me at the lapidary club. I was very fortunate to buy these fossils he found in the 80’s, the top one he has named after his wife OSMUNDACAULIS Janii. The big one is called OSMUNDACAULIS Pruchnickii. I cut and polished the two fossils especially for this exhibition! I’m so excited about it@goldsmithsgallery #fossils #luneriver #luneriverferntrunkfossil #ferntrunkfossil #petrified #mesozoic #jurassic #carboniferous #handcrafted #madeintasmania #tasmanianjewellery #handcraftedjewellery #geology #prehistoric #osmundicaulis

On Sale soon!! This beautiful stone has hair line fractures which I’m pretty sure are healed. The biggest one you can see right hear on the bottom section. It’s just the nature of this particular stone and it’s was very stable to cut and quite hard…however It’s way too beautiful not to set and I’m way too fussy to sell it full price because of this Offers will be welcome! I’ve put lots of work into it, I’d just like someone to enjoy it! Message me for more details
