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!

Juli's Jewels ArtFire Shop - What is up with the $10 Specials?

I need your help. 

There, I said it. I need your help. 

Those four little words are very hard to say, but I am finally saying them. One more time...I need your help. I need money to pay for my car insurance next month and I need to clear out jewelry that is just not what I am making these days. I need to have all the items sold by the end of November, which is awesome because it is just before Christmas! Think of the stockings you could stuff or the little co-worker gifts...the kid's teacher? How about your sister- or mother-in law?

Example of $10 Special
I will have at least 100 $10 items listed in my ArtFire Shop in the $10 Specials section. All of the items listed in the $10 Specials section will be worth $10 or more and are all very nice pieces, they just aren't really what I'm making these days and have been working on clearing them out of my shop anyway. Each person who purchases one of the $10 items will also receive a coupon for free shipping for their next order.

Most of you (my fans and followers of Juli's Jewels) only know me as the girl who makes jewelry and does give-aways and maybe gets a little too posty on facebook sometimes. I also write a blog about crafting business and life, I have an on line shop, I get pretty excited when someone adds one of my pieces to their ArtFire Collection, and practically squee myself when it gets on the front page. The people who know me think I'm nice. I'm introverted and shy, but once I get to know you and am comfortable enough to open up, you'll find me funny and caring. My heart is big and I believe in paying it forward. Frankly, those of you who do know me, know I'd really rather give the jewelry I make away than sell it...but can't because I'd quickly not be able to make anymore....all that being said, this is the hardest post I have ever written. 

Please look over my ArtFire Shop in the $10 Specials section and find something awesome that you would like to give a home to, and help out a hand made jewelry artist in the process.
