All of my jewelry designs are dictated, first and foremost, by stones. As I handmade each piece, I allow the gem's color, shape and quality to inform the design process. Working in high karat gold and using the stone as my guide, my jewelry designs are specific reactions to unique stones.
High Quality Gems
This carved turquoise, set in 22k gold, is a one-of-a-kind piece designed specifically to highlight this stone's gorgeous color, quality carving and unique shape. A detailed granulated bale and handwoven 22k gold chain compliment all.
About Julia Parish
With my jewelry designs, I strive to create timeless yet modern heirlooms. Drawn towards things ancient, magical and feminine, I work to impart a bit of these qualities into each of my jewelry pieces – like rediscovered sunken or buried treasure, with a life before and after.
Employing ancient goldsmithing techniques such as melting, rolling, forming and pulling metal into sheet and wire, I make each piece by hand to create jewelry both unique and specific. Pearls of all shapes and sizes, rose cut diamonds & sapphires, rubies, moonstones and light reflecting crystals dominate. Working in high-carat gold and fine or sterling silver, I aim to create pieces that will endure in quality and style. Never fussy or trendy, but graceful and elegant with a sprinkling of magical sparkle.
