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!

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays all! I'm feeling very festive lately, but then it's hard not to. Everywhere you go the halls are decked, the trees trimmed, and the carols are being piped in.
Shameless self-promotion time...all of the holiday items in my ArtFire shop are on sale, already marked down, no coupon needed. Also, every now and then, I flip on the "Sales Mode" and mark down everything an additional 10% just because I'm feeling gifty. You never know when it might happen, but it does at least once a day (and sometimes I announce it on Twitter and my Facebook page).

Plus, if you have read this far...I'm going to do another give-away. Leave a comment (any comment, but please be nice) and you could win this pin. It is has been lightly glittered and the border is a rich red. I will pick someone at random from the comments, on Tuesday, December 15th (so I can get it in the mail before I go on my trip).
Enjoy your holiday season, and please shop handmade for the holidays.

Cheers, Juli
