Julie says:-

‘My approach to contemporary jewellery is based on feeling and intuition, with a strong connection to the materials, processes and surfaces. I am delighted at the resurgence of craft and integrity. I create a personal collection of pale silver rich surfaces, embossed with handmade papers, detailed and contrasted with darker coloured metals, all within a framework of a minimal soft geometry. I am drawn to jewellery that is fine, effortless, and chic in form.’
