Pearl Collection

Creating with pearls brings me so much joy. The ocean makes her way to my heart even though most of the pearls I have in my hands are cultivated and not wild. That is the beauty of Pearls. The beautiful cold sensual silky touch on my fingertips guides my heart to the sea tide and deep oceans, forming in me a prayer for all they keep.

If you cant see anything that suits, please make an appointment with me. I have some beautiful pearls on hand to make a design just for you.

Ring Collections

Nothing really dies. It just transforms. 
Most of my ring making process is transforming wax to recycled gold and silver.  Every design is different to the next, with its own beauty.
My rings are made with solid recycled metals and natural precious and semi precious stones.  My preference is Australian locally cut gemstones but I will also use vintage and those ethically sourced.

Sculpture, Images & Objects

Art by Barbara Nanshe 

I am interested in the human condition and the environment broadly. As an artist my subject matter specifics vary but the topics are all under the umbrella of the two broad subjects.  Specifically, Contemporary subjects around feminist principles and the environment; domestic influences with animals; land forms and plant shapes; personal stories; are all topics I explore in my work.

Sculpture and Assemblage

I start by drawing my ideas, then making and collecting the elements to be put together to the brief.  A whole piece can take days, weeks or months to come together and work.   I choose recycled materials first. Then I make the forms and shapes I need. I often add unusual, vintage and limited collection materials from my travel experiences because they already have a story that I want to include in the piece.   I work on the premise that the future is told through the past and the present will soon be the past. 

From time to time I will make Jewellery art pieces that you can both wear- if you are brave -and fix to the wall as an object.

I love paper so I work with collage and paint and pencils from time to time.

Wrist Collection

Choose from Sterling silver solid Cuffs, bracelets with stones or pearls or reclaimed Vintage German Stainless Steel watch bands from the 1920s to the 1990s with hand made sterling silver and gemstone parts.

Some bands are quite fine and have never been worn. Those from the 1970s to the 1990s have never been worn and are in excellent condition. Others have been worn from the 1920s to 1960s and have small imperfections but are cleaned and in great working order.      I connect my accents of natural agates, crystal beads, vintage glass buttons, cast Sterling silver designs and pearls, with Sterling Silver wire. 

One Only Pieces.
