Here's a little about me.

My jewelry inspirations come from the ocean and tropical flowers, that I so love.

Growing up in Southern California, specifically Newport Beach, I have always had a love of the ocean. Having a bay on one side and the ocean on the other of a small spit of land I grew up on, meant being surrounded by water. I moved to Hawaii when I was 18 and spent almost 20 years there.

Being a creative person by nature, I began making jewelry while in high school, then became employed as a silversmith. Currently, because of the lack of proper studio space, I have become enthralled with wire wrapping beautiful gemstones, which fullfills my obsession with color.
I love making beautiful things. Making jewelry is like meditation for me. I loose all track of time. It helps keep me calm, centered and helps relieve the stress of a full-time job and life in general
Putting my two loves together, tropic inspired colors and materials, and jewelry making, has brought me to create the pieces you see here.
I hope that when you wear one of my pieces,you feel that same sense of serenity that I feel creating it. ENJOY !!!!! Julee
