Julie Collins' Profile
I began to dabble with a bit of jewelry design in 1995. In 2002, I began small, first with gifts of jewelry, then selling to the nursery school moms. I have to credit my muse, Heidi K., for pushing me to start thinking bigger. I also have to thank my two close friends, Mary Pat J. and Pam L., for their moral support. Mary Pat and Pam had to endure my first pieces of work, and then humor me into thinking that these were the greatest jewelry works of art since Faberge's eggs.
So, that is my story. I love what I am doing. I feel a little like a cat on its 4th life; student of art; Army officer exposed to the world's beautiful creations, Mom with the two most precious treasures, and now jewelry artist. I wake up every morning loving what I am doing. I hope you can share in my joy.
