The Handmade Process...

All Handmade by Natasha & Beau

RRJ pieces are mindfully handcrafted, predominantly in our in home studio in Adelaide. We pride ourselves on creating not only a safe and healthy working environment, but also a nurturing and supportive platform for our growth as jewellers.

We encourage and support skill development and personal growth with a focus on creating a positive and enjoyable workspace. Using hand tools as opposed to heavy machinery lessens our carbon footprint, while selecting non toxic compounds for use in the studio reduces our environmental impact. 

The designing of a collection

All our designs are original. First we start by designing our ideas by sketching. As shapes, forms and details start to develop on paper, they begin exploring the stones which will suit the newly formed collection story.  

Sourcing these stones is always an involved process, generally we find rough material and then have the collections shapes custom cut. We have made connections from all around the world, working closely with our lapidary to ensure our gems are created ethically with little carbon footprint.

From pen and paper, to the bench

Once we have designed our visions on paper we then bring them to life at the workbench.

The final check

Once your piece is complete, Beau and Natasha will then quality check each piece individually by hand to ensure they are perfect. Every jewellery creation made by RRJ is then cleansed with Salo Panto and Sage followed by charging on a selenite plate finished by a pray.

With love from RRJ.

The final hands to touch your piece ensure that it is carefully packed and wrapped to be safely delivered. Wherever we send your piece, whether it be across seas, soaring through the sky or travelling along roads, it arrives filled with sentiment and care, from a handwritten note to our signature care kit - exuding love from the moment it lands on your door step to be with you forever.
