I'm Jule, pronounced "Julie" and these are my creations. Jules Artwear started a long time ago when my kids were very young. Working from my home studio, doing lots of arts festivals and having a mall kiosk every holiday season made life a bit nuts at times. Fast forward more than 20 years and both kids are married and I am lucky to have two amazing granddaughters. My primary workbench now resides at our brick & mortar, Patinaz, in downtown Williamsport, but I still maintain work space at home too.
Living in north central Pennsylvania with its natural beauty has been an inspiration. A run in the woods, bike ride along the Susquehanna, drive through the countryside, or time spent in my gardens is all I need to fuel the design fires.
All jewelry is handcrafted with top quality materials including sterling silver, fine silver, 14kt goldfilled and copper on occasion. I use a variety of techniques such as fusing, soldering, and cold connections in my designs. Polymer clay beads are all made by me and will vary from batch to batch. Keep this in mind when considering matching pieces.
Making jewelry has been the most rewarding, fulfilling and challenging not so nine to five career. I absolutely love what I do and am thankful every day for all the support I've been given by family, friends and so many wonderful customers.
