Reviews, when genuine, give the online buyer an idea of customers who are actually satisfied with their purchase. These reviews I have added here are indeed genuine. But this is the first time I’ve added them, something I should have done ages ago. Unfortunately I am only now beginning to collect some of the lovely responses I have had. So many have been verbal, others have been long emails of appreciation, but these are just a few I have managed to save.
"I have bought two necklaces from Barbara for my wife. One hints at the Baroque, cascading pinkish golden pearls, with a beautiful Chinese bi disc as central pendant; the other is modernist, with wonderful grey quartz cubes. They completely contrast, yet they are both distinctly Acton-Bond. And they are both stunning. My wife is always complimented on them. Barbara is a real artist, and the individuality and originality of her pieces adds to their charm and allure. I sometimes find myself just browsing her website because her creations are so lovely."

"I was in London for the annual Christmas Fair where Barbara displays her fabulous jewelry. I saw so many GORGEOUS necklaces, I honestly could not decide which one to buy. And, to make matters worse, I had a plane to catch. So, reluctantly I left without one of these beautiful, one of a kind creations and I deeply regret it. With Barbara’s creations, you can always find something you love!”
My fabulous necklace I have worn for so many events! Claire
I love Barbara’s necklaces - each piece is out of the ordinary and unique, and can instantly transform an everyday outfit. I often get compliments when wearing her jewellery. But for me the main appeal is wearing something that has a story to tell, and she usually mixes vintage beads or stones with new ones, which give her necklaces greater depth, and makes them heirloom pieces. She also has a joyous way with colour , which gives her jewellery warmth and vibrancy. An added bonus is that Barbara herself is so lovely and takes great pride and joy in her workmansh; it has been a pleasure being her customer over the years.
