Julia Bentley's Profile
Inspiration. I find it all around me. Living in beautiful rural New England area allows me to get up close with nature and incorporate it into my creations. I enjoy hand making my wearable art in my studio in New England. I love taking plain silver wire and making a piece of art out of it. There is a thrill in transforming a piece of copper and creating an enameled jewel.
Every piece I make is a journey. As I'm always experimenting and learning new things The journey is never the same. Whether inspired from my backyard or from my travels around the world, I like my jewelry to have a story. i use my own photos to etch metal for enameled designs. Each piece explains the journey of it's creation.
I constantly take classes at the New Hampshire Art Institutes to learn new techniques...
