Julie lives in the beautiful and very popular surfing village of Polzeath, North Cornwall. With a love of creativity she moved from a career in nursing and turned her passion for protecting the natural world into a business. In 2016 she set up Jules Stenning Design – a conscious jewellery brand that produces designs inspired by the natural world. She is now established as a quality jewellery designer in North Cornwall and a member of the Guild of Jewellery Designers.
Julie takes inspiration from the natural world with her work influenced by forms, colours, shapes and textures of the coast and the beaches around her.
Julie has a love of nature and it forms the basis of her inspiration. Her designs are fluid and develop naturally as she uses coastal beauty as her starting point. Julie uses natural forms in her designs showing how textures, colours and forms of the coastline and sea can add beauty to a jewellery piece.
” Cornwall is a breath of fresh air, it fires up my imagination, relaxes the mind and gives me such inspiration! I can’t help but smile as I walk the clifftops and watch the stunning sunsets by the beach”
Julie’s attention to detail and emphasis on the unique has given her a reputation for quality, her aim is to respect the planet and run an ethical, sustainable business. She uses recycled precious metals, recycled bottle glass and ethically sourced gemstones supplied by a local Cornish Company. She also uses the very precious 18ct Fairtrade Gold in her work with items HALLMARKED to British Standards at the Birmingham Assay Office. Beautiful ETHICAL jewellery for the ECO-CONSCIOUS.
