Hi, I'm Juliet Friedman! Longtime jewelry fanatic. Foodie. Goofball.

I started creating jewelry as a little girl, messing around with seed beads and embroidery floss. Soon enough, I experimented with glass beads, crystal, craft wire and everything else I could get my hands on. I took a few silversmithing courses along the way, but I always go back to my beads, wire, and pliers. I love to hunt down materials that inspire me, including: Czech glass, Swarovski crystal, semiprecious stones, lucite, and vintage elements. I experiment and mix things up, especially color and texture combinations.

I'm a big fan of the trial and error method of design, so every piece is one of a kind! I'll do my best to recreate a similar design if asked, or I'd love to create something custom just for you.

Here, you'll be able to see my newest *rees straight off the pliers and I'll talk about my creative process (hint: no sketching, all trial and error) and other jewelry/crafty goodness. I'll also announce sales and other events coming to my Etsy shop so you can get first crack. At some point, I'd also like to feature other Etsy artists I admire, every couple weeks or so.
