    I saw this bracelet on eBay recently, I decided to bid on it and was lucky enough to have the winning bid. Today I received the bracelet and with a little cleaning I was thrilled to see that in my opinion it is Bernard Instone. I have seen these leaves on some of his jewellery, there is some slight wear to a couple of the leaves. Unfortunately there are no hallmarks which is normal for Instone.
    It is a delicate bracelet very pleasing to the eye, the blue paste stones are a stunning colour, I did test for Aquamarine but the selector didn’t register. At the back you can see the wonderful Instone silver work. These days you have to be fortunate to come across this type of work by Instone on a eBay auction,

    Many thanks for looking

    Happy New Year to all the people on CW

      How beautiful! My first though was aquamarine. I have no knowledge about Instone. Is it normal for that maker not to mark the jewelry? I don't understand why some makers don't mark their pieces, why would you not want to show who made it?
    12. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 2 years ago
      The art and craft movement are notorious for not marking their pieces. Dorrie Nossiter, Amy Sandheim also Sybil Dunlop and many others didn’t mark there work, which is very frustrating. I suppose you become accustomed to their type of work.
      Thanks for your interest Elisabethan.

      Lucky find! It is beautiful :-D

      Awww thanks, it was a lucky find, it’s very difficult to buy quality Bernard Instone items from eBay these days, but there are still pieces out there. I’m tending to buy my Instone pieces from a fantastic seller I know.

      It’s lovely Jean, and really only an expert like you would be able to find this on eBay.
      Great job, and congratulations.

      Happy New year!

      Thank you Karen, I see Australia is having a awful time with Bush fires I hope your ok. We have fires in Spain but not on that scale. I have great respect for the firefighters putting their lives on the line.

      Happy New Year to you and your family.
