This necklace makes a fun statement and punches up my otherwise fairly neutral wardrobe. I love the colors in it and the quality of craftsmanship is excellent. Shipping was very fast and it arrived nicely presented as well. Thank you!

Thank you for visiting my shop and taking time to read a little more about me.


My name is Julia Dunne and I design, make, package, ship, photograph, market - do anything and everything involved with J Dunne Studio. Providing quality, handmade jewelry that makes each day a little more precious for you, is my goal with each piece I create.

I take pride in using only top quality gemstones along with sterling silver and 14k gold fill from award winning sources in the US and Italy. I also recycle my own silver and use it regularly in my designs. I strive to use environmentally-friendly packaging, tools, and studio practices. I love to create beauty and share it with others, and I want to do it with the least amount of impact on our planet as possible.

While mostly self-taught, I've studied metalwork and stone setting at New Approach School for Jewelers In Franklin, TN, with Blaine Lewis. I'm lucky to have one of the top jewelry instructors in the world, teaching practically in my back yard. I take classes whenever I am able.

When you connect with me through Etsy or social media, you will be talking only to me. I am proud to run a small, artisan business from my home studio. Whether it’s through a transaction with no communication other than my thank you and shipping notice, or to answer questions via email conversations, I want you to feel the jewelry you own or gift, will last for years. Please know if you do not feel that way, I will remedy it. I want each and every customer to be thrilled with their purchase. I take great interest in every piece I make, as well as each customer and transaction.

Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to contact me any time.

General Care

- The best way to prevent jewelry from tarnishing is to store clean, dry pieces in a dry container.
- Keep items separate to prevent tangling and scratching.
- Avoid leaving your jewelry in the bathroom, as the moisture will speed up the oxidation process.
- Minimize your jewelry's contact to chemicals such as lotions, hairspray, perfume, bleach, etc.

Cleaning Sterling Silver jewelry

- To clean your sterling silver jewelry, use mild soap and water, a sterling silver polishing cloth, or a sterling silver jewelry cleaning solution.
- I use a Sunshine polishing cloth to remove tarnish.
- If using a cleaning solution, be careful to follow the directions and do not leave the jewelry in for too long. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.

Cleaning Gold Filled jewelry

- Over time, gold filled jewelry can tarnish, much like sterling.
- Please don't use jewelry cleaners on your gold filled jewelry, as the gold layer may eventually wear away.
- To clean, mix mild soap and warm water, gently swish the jewelry and then dry with a soft cloth and let dry.

What is gold filled

- Gold filled gives you the look of solid gold but, unlike gold plated jewelry, the color will not fade.
- Gold filled is made of a solid layer of gold bonded to sterling silver or a base metal, usually brass.
- High quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as solid 14 k gold. Gold filled items have a much thicker layer than gold plated items, and are also of much higher quality.
