I participate in a lot of shows so shipping times are updated based around my schedule. Please don't hesitate to message me regarding a piece you would like to purchase. Chances are I am able to ship it to you from the road.
I've been silver and gold smithing for 32 years and doing cloisonné enamel for over 25 years. I continue to have a hunger for experimentation which keeps the craft exciting for me. I am always up to something new as I have more ideas and designs to exceed my lifetime.

All pieces on hand will ship within 1-2 days. Pieces that have to be made can take 2-6 weeks depending on complexity. Please check the listing for shipping time.

I have two types of jewelry in my shop. Limited one of a kind production which are made to order and shipped usually within the same week and one of a kind. Please keep in mind the limited one of a kind production pieces will vary slightly from the photo but will be just as beautiful. This is what makes each of my pieces one of a kind as they are handmade and no two are identical.

About

32 years ago at age fourteen my first ignition of a blowtorch started my journey as a jewelry designer.

As a girl there were few things I loved more than running my fingers through vintage necklaces passed down from my loving grandmothers. Things that shimmered and sparkled always caught my eye. As I grew, I began disassembling them and making my own creations.
When I was fourteen, I took my first metal-smithing class, and with one ignition of a blowtorch I had found my path in life. I was fortunate to attend one out of only ten public high schools in the country with an advanced art program. After high school, I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan and graduated with a degree in jewelry and gems.
After college, I mastered the technique of cloisonné enamel and developed my signature medium of miniature paintings created from layers of high fired powdered glass framed in precious metal settings. One of my first creations was an evil eye pendant. Twenty-five years later, my evil eyes remain one of my most popular (and imitated) lines.
All of my work is inspired by my mother and her battle with cancer. Like those necklaces passed down through the generations, her memory is my muse.
My jewelry is all handmade in my home studio in western Colorado.

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    My work is a fusion of powdered glass, luscious colors and precious metal into miniature paintings that bring bold accents of color to the human canvas on which they are worn. I rarely sketch out my designs or inspirations before manifesting my ideas into metal, glass or canvas unless the design is extremely intricate. I prefer to start with the raw materials themselves since I understand how they will respond. My designs and creations come from emotions or the path that life offers me as an individual. I design and fabricate all my jewelry from my home studio in Western Colorado. To maintain the integrity of my work, I am the sole creator of each piece from start to finish. Each piece is made with lots of love. Many Blessings, Julie Glassman
