Meet Julie & Her Gorgeous Creations!!

I am so excited to introduce you all to Julie, owner of the Julry Shop on Etsy.  She creates one of a kind bracelets using an eclectic combination of glass beads, vintage buttons, & safety pins.  The combination creates beautiful bracelets with an edge.  Here are a few of my personal favorites:






I love to know how people started on their road to creativity and inspiration.  Here is a little bit of what Julie graciously shared with me:

"I received a button bracelet as a gift from a coworker. Although it was made with basic plastic beads, I marveled at the beautiful buttons. It inspired me to create something unique, with my own designs. I remain inspired by vintage and antique buttons, and I always incorporate quality glass beads. And I love that each and every bracelet is different from the last. They are also a great accessory to any casual or fancy outfit.

Now that I have been creating these bracelets, I think it has been my "calling" for quite some time. It is funny to think back to when I was a very young child and I used to make crafts and wood creations at my little workbench. I would hold "store hours" to sell my pieces, even though it was only my parents and siblings that would come into my cellar to shop. In so many words, I think the act of making my bracelets and having my own shop has fulfilled the businesswoman in me that has been brewing since I was a child. "

I hope you all take the time to check out Julie's lovely Etsy shop!!  Thank you Julie for sharing your story & beautiful bracelets with us :)
