About Me

I started making jewelry when I took a silversmithing class in High School. I was only 15 years old, but I knew that making jewelry was something I really wanted to do. I enjoyed making jewelry so much that I decided to pursue it in college. I now have a BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design from the University of Kansas.

I started selling my work at Arts and Crafts Shows and Fine Art Shows in 1987. I was doing 25 shows a year and was successful in selling my work, but I was growing weary of the show circuit and looking for a more permanent place to showcase my work. I had always dreamed of having my own store and in 2004 I opened the store "Jewelry By Julie" at 17 West 9th Street in Downtown Lawrence, Kansas. Now I only show my work at 5 shows a year.

Most of my jewelry designs are made from sterling silver and genuine gemstones, such as Amethyst, Lapis, Jade, Turquoise, Black Onyx. I have always been intrigued with gemstones and their wide range of colors, patterns and textures. Many times I will find an interesting stone and design a piece around it. Many of my pieces are one of a kind. This website shows only a small portion of what I have in my store. I invite you to come visit my store and see the wide variety of unique and affordable jewelry and accessories, such as purses, scarves, wallets and gift items.
