Julie lives in the beautiful and very popular city of Bath, Somerset. With a love of creativity she moved from a career in nursing and turned her passion for recycling and the natural world into a business. In 2016 she set up Jules Stenning Jewellery – a conscious jewellery brand that produces designs inspired by her love of colour, texture and the mix of different materials to make beautiful statement pieces. Having previously been established as a quality jewellery designer in North Cornwall, she has now moved to Bath.
“Bath is such a beautiful city, and I’m lucky enough to live on the outskirts, right by countryside and the stunning city skyline! Bristol is so close too, full of colour, music and culture. I aim to draw on these amazing cities to create stunning unique ethical pieces of jewellery.”
I am constantly inspired by what I see around me, colours, textures, architecture and the people. I live on the outskirts of Bath, a short walk to the City and very close to the Bath skyline too. I get the best of both, seeing the amazing architecture of the city, the views, and the countryside around Bath.
Bristol is nearby and an amazing City full of colour, vibrancy, music and culture. I am to use the influences of these two cities to produce some unique, colourful, individual pieces.
Jules makes ETHICAL jewellery for the ECO-CONSCIOUS, her aim is to respect the planet and run an ethical, sustainable business. She has worked as a Silversmith since 2016, making beautiful inspired pieces from her home in the City of Bath, Somerset. She uses a range of techniques from traditional to contemporary to create texture, often showing the marks of process. She uses hammers to create patterns and marks on the surface of the Silver to reflect the texture found around her.
