Juli Geldmacher Nocita
- 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!

Halloween Treats for You.
This weekend at 3rd Saturday, I will be partnering up with Dyana Martin of DyMa Creations. Please come by and check out her fabulous hats.
As Halloween draws nearer, I have become all nostalgic, thinking about Halloweens past and all the fun of trick-or-treating (I must admit, I have never done a trick, more's the pity.).
I have decided that I will share the fun of trick-or-treating with you. If you purchase any Halloween item from my ArtFire Shop or from me at a craft fair ( I will be vending at 3rd Saturday this weekend, look for me on 11th between K & L Streets, across from Ambrosia Cafe) I will give you the Halloween Treat Bag of Fun.
I have just made some new pieces, including my current favorite, the Poison Necklace (a simple soldered pendant on black suede lace). The new items will be uploaded to my shop by this evening, and I will have a few more items at the show this weekend.
