Julie Buelteman is a skilled craftswoman who imbues her adornments with a light all their own. As the creative spirit behind Julie B. & Company she spends countless hours finding special materials from which she creates her artisan jewelry.
Julie began making jewelry in high school. She studied Textile Design at California State University Long Beach, and along the way she has been a weaver, surface designer, painter, sculptor, and mixed media artist, but always returns to her passion for making one-of-a-kind jewelry.
Having always lived on the coast of California, Julie has invited the colors, sounds and smells of beach life inform her designs. Pearls, gemstones, silver and glass are favorite materials that inspire her unique jewelry.
