My jewelry is handcrafted from Argentium Sterling Silver with the occasional addition of brass and copper to add interest and contrast. The name Artulia was created as a feminine & playful combination of the words art & jewel.
I love tea (especially with a scone)
ginger is my favorite spice
listening to TV on the radio
I have 2 cats named Jackson & Pollock
What got you started crafting?
I attended Indiana University school of fine arts where I received a B.A. in Studio Art and Art History. It was in jewelry design that I found my true calling. My mother, an accomplished jewelry artist of 30 plus years, encouraged me to pursue my passion for jewelry. It was in her studio that I had the good fortune of taking one-on-one classes learning advanced jewelry & metalsmithing techniques. Soon after, I had found my own unique style and immediately fell in love with the whole process.
What is your source of inspiration?
Everything! Jewelry is constantly on my mind. I am inspired everyday by all that is around me.
What have you made recently?
I've recently been working on my new Circle Collection of jewelry. So I'm immersed in all things circle!
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
Etsy, DaWanda, Art fairs & galleries
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Buying handmade helps us reconnect as a community. The customer & artist create a supportive relationship which is void in the chain stores with mass production.
Thank you for supporting handmade!
