Joolzery is a combination of two of my passions healing crystals and fabulous jewellery.
My handcrafted collection of wearable art is forever changing as I am always challenging myself to create something distinct, quirky, contemporary or organic for my customers, using recycled copper, sterling silver and ethically sourced healing crystals, and are made in my attic studio in Liverpool.
Being self taught has given me the freedom to experiment, play around and let my inner child loose with jewellery designs and concepts that are not traditional, whilst using traditional metalsmithing techniques.
The jewellery designs are minimalist to show off the beauty of the natural healing stones, which are sometimes set at angles to exhibit their hidden characteristics at its best.
The making process always starts with either a piece of recycled copper, sterling silver sheet or wire and some healing stone cabochons, and then the design evolves organically as the metal smithing techiques are applied to create the desired form.
When creating bezel settings to hold the healing crystal recycled fine silver is used to build the form to hold it in the final piece.
The Joolzery range includes elegant pendants, unique quirky and bohochic earrings, contemporary and statement rings, hoops and studs, which would make ideal stocking fillers.
Most of the healing stones selected are either distinct due to their colour, shape and/or cut, or have been sourced due to their rarity or uniqueness, whilst all having wonderful healing energies and properties, which have affinities to both birth months and zodiac signs
All my pieces are one-offs which means that they are as unique as the person that wears it, making the wearer feel really special as well as look awesome!!!
As well as my website, I am very active in the handcrafted community within the region and beyond, attending various artisan markets and fayres and Mind Body and Soul events around the country, where you can see the wearable art in its full beauty and talk to me about finding the perfect gift.
The prices range from £10 to £150, so there is something for everyone.
