About Gems by Jules
Julie Meister from Ohio in the US is the talented artisan behind Gems by Jules and her story begins in 2006:
`I cross stitch and many designs in cross stitch incorporate beads. I used to meet with a local group of women a few times a year and one of my friends from that group got interested in beading. She showed me a really easy beading stitch which got me started. But when she opened her own bead store, that’s when things really took off for me. I have taken a few classes at her shop, bought books – and of course I buy lots of beads from her! It’s an ever-growing obsession`.
Fast forward to the present day and Julie`s skill and attention to detail have yielded great results -
`Very few people have the patience, time or eye-sight for this kind of beading. The intricacies of bead-weaving make for unusual pieces. Of course, creating my own designs also makes my business special`.
Julie can personalise items by changing colours and also create bespoke pieces for those customers seeking something exactly to their taste. Julie estimates 50% of her business comes from custom orders.
Inspiration for her Collection comes from a variety of sources -
`I am all the time looking at pictures of items on line – sometimes I will base something on clip art that is used in scrapbooking. Sometimes, it is a photograph, and sometimes it is simply something that I see floating around in my head`

“Believe it or not, the photo of this bracelet does not do it justice. It is even more gorgeous in person!!!! And it feels so good on my wrist - almost like wearing silk. Your workmanship is exquisite and I've gotten loads of compliments and offers to buy it right off my wrist. But, I'm not parting with it!”
“The bracelet is beautiful and the service is first class. I would thoroughly recommend GemsbyJules to anyone considering buying a special item of jewellery. You will be delighted.”
“I'm looking at an unusual, beautiful necklace that partners with an unusual, beautiful bracelet, both made by a very creative, thoughtful person. It doesn't get much better than this.”
