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!

Design Downtown

The Sacramento News and Review will be hosting Design Downtown this Saturday, July 18th from 3pm to 9pm (and hopefully ever third Saturday from now 'til at least October...).
To quote the News and Review "...over 40 local arts, crafts and fashion vendors will descend upon K Street, transforming downtown Sacramento into a bustling creative district. Discover some of the city's greatest DIY artists while supporting local businesses." There Our hope is that thousands of people of all ages will embark upon downtown to participate in this exciting event; street vendors, community art projects, trunk sales, a fashion bazaar, fashion shows, a beer garden and live entertainment on multiple stages will be just some of the sights and activities that people will take in.
Why, you might ask, am I telling you this? Because Juli's Jewels will be there (yup, that's me!). Stop by and say "Hi".

It was a really good show. I hope it keeps going. The crowd was really good & the live music was great. The heat was hot though...
