About Me

My photo

Juli grew up a shy, middle child and is a woman of few words whose jewelry speaks volumes about herself, her feelings and her perspective on the world.  A modern alchemist of design, she melds industrial imagery and organic aesthetics together to create new and unique designs.  Juli's love for asymmetrical design was immediately made apparent in her very first bead craft:  a pair of mismatched earrings created when she was sixteen.  She developed her eclectic style by reading about and experimenting with every style and technique she could get her hands on, from stitched bead jewelry to riveted metals and from wire wrapping to precious metal clays.  No matter what Juli creates, her sense of humor & fun, love of the craft and sense of style come through.  Juli would probably blog more often if her rather large tabby cat, Rocky, didn't insinuate himself between her hands and the keyboard.  However, she does regularly update her facebook fan page for Juli's Jewels.  Juli is always paying-it-forward, not only on a personal level, but through her company with "just because" giveaways.  Juli's Jewels ArtFire artisan shop is jam packed with earrings, pendants, necklaces, anklets and more that are ready to ship and she loves to make custom orders for people too!

Where Do You Work-Final

Okay...so I'm a day late, but I was actually done on time. The joy of computers is that sometimes they don't work. Mine kept freezing up on me yesterday.
So, drum roll please...my completed work room/studio/retreat is finally done and I am very pleased.
This picture is the Kiln Area, where my kiln, dehydrator and tumbler live. I have craft fair storage below that I will make a cover to hide, but I can live with it for now.

This is my Sewing Area. I gave myself plenty of space on the side for when I am working on my big patchwork quilts. As you can see, I have two in progress, stacked on the drawer unit to the right, between the sewing table and the little book case.

This is my Jewelry/Mixed media collage Area. This bookcase on the left is all my mixed media collage and paper crafts stuff, plus all my crafty books on the bottom shelf. The bookcase on the right is most of my jewelry making stuff. The desk in the middle is my primary workspace. My jewelry making findings and a caddy with all of my tools live on it full time. I have an Ott Light on each side for optimum lighting for my work.

This is a picture of the whole room from the door. Buddy the super dog doesn't know what to do with all the floor space.
The contest winner is Krissi, for showing me her work area. Thanks for sharing. Please let me know how you'd like to receive your collage domino necklace (snail mail or I can drop it off at Scary Craft if you don't mind waiting. Your choice.)
Happy crafting!
