Bold & Dramatic

Posted by juliesjewels on December 20, 2009

This is one original and dramatic necklace, not for the feint-hearted…

Created using some really cool stick like seeds and large Kukui Nuts with Mother-of-Pearl beads, sparkling Swarovski Crystals and a touch of Sterling Silver.

August DUST Swap

Posted by juliesjewels on August 13, 2009

Swap number 5

Another couple of months has rolled around and the new swap is up and running…

This month I have Tish from Artish as a partner and this is what she received in the mail this morning…

Tish’s favorite colours are Red, Black and White and she prefers Silver and LOVES earrings.

They are all created with a mixture of Lampwork, Swarovski Crystal, Czech Glass and other beads.

She loved her new jewels – in her words — My goodies arrived today, thanks so much, they are beautiful!!

~~~ ~~~~ ~~~

Now here is the STUNNING scarf that I received – and a little flower that is so cute.  The flower is hanging on my kitchen cabinet’s door handle at the moment…

Thank-you Tish – this is really a gorgeous scarf and so warm.

For the last two swaps now I have received scarves – I wonder what Swap number 6 will bring in September/October?

February DUST Swap

Posted by juliesjewels on February 12, 2009

Swap number 2

Recently the etsyDUST team arranged a swap amongst members.

The theme was LOVE which is quiet apt for February and Valentine’s Day upcoming.

Anyway I had to make something to send to Anthea of – http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=23424 – her favorite colors are Purple and White and she picked her favorite items from my store.  Her choices were Chandlier Earrings and the ‘Bunch of Grapes’ earrings…

So from that I created these two pairs for her.


Anthea’s comment on receiving her parcel – Dear Julie-Ann,

Today, peeping out of my post box was the very exciting little package I have been looking forward to. I was so excited opening the envelope and reading the beautiful card!

I LOOOOOOOOOVE BOTH these earings.
I am flabber-ghasted that you sent me more than one pair – you completely shouldn’t have – and then again, I’m so glad you did as I love them both!

I have put the grape earings on immediately as they match (scarily perfect in colour) with what I was wearing today and I can’t WAIT to wear the beautiful Chandelier earings tomorrow.

It has been truly lovely being your swap ‘recipient’. I feel that I am one of the super-lucky ones and could not have hoped for a better beautiful gift – let alone TWO pairs.

Once again, I adore them and am so thrilled.

Thank you so very much for your beautiful work and designey style…

Yours sincerely & excitedly…


Now I’m waiting on my item coming from… Gillian – http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5190943 – I Can’t wait to see what my pressie is, will pop it in here when it’s here…

Well here it is – TaDa

A gorgeous canvas sign with my business name – Julie’s Jewels

It’s perfect.  It even has a dictionary page and the two words above my name are – jewel & jewelry – how apt is that?

Pearly Delights

I’ve been playing around with some faux pearls recently – and they have made some stunning earrings that would suit a Wedding or young ladies Debutante.

Combined with Sterling Silver and Swarovski Crystals

White Wedding

Posted by juliesjewels on January 26, 2009

I have some beautifully romantic white Sugar beads made from Polymer Clay and I thought that they would be just perfect for a Wedding set – or even for a young ladies Deb…

So I added lots of sparkling Swarovski Crystals in Clear AB and lashings of delicate Sterling Silver.

Prehistoric Necklace

Posted by juliesjewels on January 23, 2009

Once Upon A Design Challenge – Part One

A recent challenge saw me having to choose from the following eras

Prehistoric – Sumerian – Egyptian – Greek

So I choose Prehistoric – this necklace is made on leather cord with a shell for the focal highlighted by white bone and brown wood beads.  All components that would probably have been found at that time (Ignore the silver – that’s artistic interpertation)

So here’s the necklace

Listed on Made It – Prehistoric Necklace

This challenge runs for another two months with different ages to come.  I will keep you updated as the new era’s are posted and with what I choose to do.

Sweet and Simple

Still with a touch of pink these pretty little earrings have a delicate flower in pink and green with a gold stem.  Surrounded and backed with a copper rim, these ceramic discs make the perfect pair of earrings.
