Julie trained under Master Jeweller Brian Newble in her 30’s and later studied to postgraduate level in Contemporary Fine Art and Printmaking. She has taught in Colleges and briefly opened a jewellery and printmaking gallery in France.
Now making full time from her studio in Lincolnshire, her approach to contemporary jewellery is based on a strong connection to the materials, processes and surfaces. The aesthetic derives from simplicity, economy, modesty, intimacy, and an appreciation of the integrity of natural materials and processes. Her personal demands for perfection and finish come from a desire to continue the traditions of good craftsmanship. She creates a collection of artisan jewellery with pale silver rich surfaces, embossed using cut handmade papers, detailed and contrasted with darker coloured metals, all within a framework of a minimal soft geometry. She is drawn to jewellery that is effortless to wear and ageless in form.
