Fabulous earrings! I had them made with the grey pearls (last of the item pictures, I believe) and really love them. The hammered silver frame is wonderful and I bent it a bit more, in a shape I prefer: curving back. The grey pearls with the silver frame get complimented every time I wear them. But then, that happens with Julie's beaded earrings, too. ALSO: all her earrings are lightweight! What more could anyone want? Thanks, Julie.

Buyer beware. Customer satisfaction secondary to making a sale. What you see is not what you get. Be forewarned, do not pay until you see the finished product.,

In addition to the cufflinks shown, Julie also created a matching pendant for me. Her work, like the cufflinks was amazing. Quality is great as was her communication and timeliness.

Pearl button earrings for pierced ears or unpierced- or as cuff links!!! Truly classic for men and women, freshwater pearls and sterling silver.

About

Losing on eBay made me a winner here!

In 2005 I was bidding on an eBay auction of a 1920s flapper-style belt in brick red, teal and black loom work and stitched medallions. It was gorgeous - but I lost the auction.

Using the photographs available at eBay, I resolved to make it myself - and I did. It's a custom item called "Speakeasy" and it is always on my display table when I am in shows such as the American Craft Council Show, the Celebration of Craftswomen, and the Contemporary Crafts Market.

I took out my business license in 2006. Now I do this full-time.

My main influences are the bead work of the Wiener Werkstatte, Native American and tribal bead weaving, the California Decorative Style, Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts and of course, Art Deco.
