Just to let any visitors know that I will be in Perth from Monday 9th of February to approximately Friday 13th February 2009 to do some Metal Detecting mainly on the beach.
So if you have lost any Jewellery or Rings recently at any Perth Beaches, Swan River, Parks, Playgrounds or at your home in the garden, please get in quick and book me to hopefully find your Lost Jewellery
Unfortunately I have not been able to carry out any Metal Detecting client searches for the last couple of weeks due to my house undergoing some home renovations and my new shed being built!
Finally I have a decent workshop!
If you don’t know My Metal Detecting and Lost Jewellery Recovery Service is based in Western Australia, and the other day I received a desperate email from a girl named Jen who resides on the other side of Australia in Sydney New South Wales.
Jen told me that she lost her Necklace and a Ring on a Beach in Sydney and asked if I could help find it for her with my metal detector.
Unfortunately I had to say no … cause I am 4000 kilometres away from her
But I had a plan up my sleeve! I have a friend in Sydney Brad who offers the same service as I do … finding peoples lost jewellery with the use of a Metal Detector, Brad’s website is Metal Detector Hire
I pointed Jen to Brad and she contacted Brad and here is the story!
I received an email from Jen stating she had lost a silver necklace with a wedding ring attached to it. And sadly, it was her mother’s wedding ring that had been lost. Jen beleived she had lost the wedding ring and necklace in the sand at Stanwell Park beach.
Jen desperately attempted to find the lost valuables herself without any success. I mentioned to Jen I would be more than happy to look for her ring/necklace, but unfortunately Jen was unable to make it down to Stanwell Park to show me where she thought her Ring & Bracelet we’re lost due to work commitments.
I asked Jen to goto Google Maps, and plot on the map where she beleives she lost the items. Jen quickly emailed me the treasure map, and off I went down the south coast.
The $100 Call Out Fee was not an issue for Jen, as she was desperate to retrieve her mother’s wedding ring. After studying the map Jen had emailed to me, I found the spot where she had been sitting. I setup a search perimeter, and began the hunt.
Much to my suprise (and Jens) I found the ring/bracelet within about 5 minutes of searching. About a minute later I received a phone call from Jen. She was calling to give me more information on where the ring/bracelet could be…when I interupted her to give her the good news. As you can imagine, Jen was more than estatic.
The chances of finding an item so small, plotted on a google satellite image are very slim, but luck was with us on this day :) And thank you kindly Jen for such a generous reward.

Well done Brad for finding Jens lost jewellery!
