It all began in 2004 with a girl in a bead shop on 5th Avenue in NYC. The said girl had bought so many beads, she didn't know what to do!
So she thought she better put them to good use, and the rest as say is history.
My name is Julie Warrington and I have been making jewellery full time since 2006. I work from my home studio in lush countryside of Co Armagh, Northern Ireland.
My designs are inspired by many things. From flowers, birds, butterflies and other winged creatures to vintage fashions, old novels to pure whimsy!
I am a great fan of all things vintage...no surprises there then. I love to incorporate vintage items into my designs. Most of these come from old unused factory stock which has been hiding in warehouses sometimes since the 1940's. I can happily spend hours scouring the internet sourcing these items. My absolute favourites are vintage floral cameo's and old charms and pendants made from brass.
I also like to re-purpose old and broken items of jewellery, so they can live to tell another story. So if you have an old heirloom, granny's brooch and would like to have it incorporated into a piece of jewellery please send me a message. I welcome custom orders or any kind.
I am also an event manager for www.frockfairsni.com Northern Ireland premier vintage and hand made lifestyle events company. Click here to find out more!
