There's nothing that gives me more pleasure than designing jewelry and seeing smiles on the faces of happy, fashion savvy women when they put on one of my bold, bright necklaces or shoulder-grazing stiletto earrings. It's a pleasure and a privilege. It's what gets me up every morning. So as I entered this, my 10th year of creative bliss, I wanted to design a collection of Summer jewelry that is truly my aesthetic - chunky, color-filled pieces (like the Flower Garden Necklace, above left) that make more than a statement. They scream "Hey, I'm here!" Reaching into my overflowing bead drawers and pulling out strand after strand of gorgeous gemstones, cloisonne, crystals and meshing them with porcelain, lucite and wood with sprinklings of precious metals was like being in my own brilliant, fanciful candy store every day. Designer ecstasy at its best.
I'm pleased to announce that select items will be available online at The Shop at JulRe Designs beginning April 26, 2010 but if you are in the New York City area, join me and see the entire Summer collection as I celebrate a decade of my company, JulRe Designs at my Launch Party and Trunk Show.
