9ct white gold Octagonal ring
This ring was a commission inspired by one of my tessellating rings,
( the double pear ring)
My customer and her husband designed it, and we decided that in a white gold ring a tanzanite and two pink sapphires, with detail white sapphires between would look lovely.

My clients Life Story necklace
She has very kindly sent me this testimonial :-
‘I first met Helen and saw her beautiful jewellery on a visit to her shop at Melbourne.
I loved the idea of using some of the jewellery my Mum had left me which had sentimental value but was not to my own taste.
I decided to have a special necklace made and wanted it to be a symbolic representation of happy memories, family friends and even pets!
After discussing my own thoughts with my husband and grandson Joseph, I met with Helen to discuss how my ideas could be incorporated into a necklace.
Helen then produced a beautiful design, which was perfect.
I must admit I was nervous when the day arrived to collect it, but my nerves were needless.
My necklace is absolutely stunning, I was overwhelmed! it was gorgeous, it reminds me of my Mum and Dad and all things precious to me, and of course it is unique.
I know for sure my Mum would have loved it,
I’ve had a lovely , happy and positive experience thanks to Helen’s incredible talent, patience and her eye for detail.
I loved making it for you, and am thrilled that you love it too, thank you very much for the commission.

A new gold ring, this is a commission just completed, and shows how earrings, for example, can be re-used, and by being reworked can give jewellery a new life in a form more likely to be worn.
This is a one off original by Helen Burrell.
My client asked me to create a ring for her using these butterfly earrings you can see below as decoration. I designed a garden theme first depicting ivy leaves and berries. and then placed the butterflies on the leaves as though they were basking in the sun.
Many thanks to my client for the opportunity to design this piece and I hope she has great enjoyment in wearing it.
If you like the idea of reviving jewellery into a new form you can have your jewellery reworked too . Please feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements.
