Barrie Lander is an award winning master jeweller who started his career in 1977 at Chris Gogos Jewellers, Perth. He has spent the majority of his career working behind the scenes for other leading Perth jewellers, producing exquisite pieces of handcrafted jewellery, and couldn’t begin to tell you how many custom engagement and wedding rings he has created for that all-important moment in couples’ lives.
Barrie’s working history has given him the opportunity to experience all facets of the jewellery trade by fulfilling the roles of jeweller, apprentice trainer, retail and workshop manager to now owning his own boutique jewellery store.
Barrie is inspired by the raw materials he works with. He has worked in the pearling paradise of Broome creating unique handmade pearl jewellery with Keshi pearls (seedless pearls) and is inspired by their unique and individual shape which dictates its completed design. In 2004 Barrie won the BAMF Jewellery Award competing against other renowned jewellers.
When asked what inspires him, he said “Creating jewellery in consultation with a client through to its completion can be self rewarding, however the true reward is customer satisfaction, and in some cases the deep personal meaning this may have for someone”.
Barrie and Kerrie Lander uprooted their kids and followed their dreams in 2006, moving to the beautiful seaside town of Busselton. A sea change which has brought a highly talented, passionate and down to earth character to town. Fusion Jewellers has now been operating in Busselton for the past 15 years, our beautiful showroom can be found at 47 Prince Street, Busselton.
