Julie Stephens jewellery was born out of her love for crafting beautiful things. She found beading a few years ago and the wonderful world of jewellery-making opened up to her. Julie’s jewellery is an evolution of years of trial and error and trying her hand at various jewellery-making skills including beadwork, wirework, metalsmithing, lost wax casting and working with precious metal clay.
Her jewellery features a relaxed, coastal aesthetic that is simple and elegant, and a little bit bohemian. She grew up in Brisbane, Queensland, and spent many holidays with her family on the Gold Coast, loving the beach and the lifestyle. She has also been fortunate to travel and has visited many inspiring overseas destinations that boast incredible beaches and wonderful cultures. Now living in Melbourne, Victoria, she has channelled her love of making and for the beach into her passion for creating beautiful jewellery. Every piece is designed and hand-crafted by Julie using semi-precious beads, stones and metals.
She loves that jewellery can have lasting meaning that signifies the time and place in which it is worn or gifted. It helps to create memories that live beyond the moment. Her purpose is to create quality, lasting pieces that resonate with the wearer and can be worn every day with minimal simplicity or are equally wearable for special occasions.
