Jewellery Designer and Maker using sterling silver, gemstones, enamels and patinas to create colour and textures, I also work with anodised aluminium which I paint, dye, texturise and shape into bangles, pendants and rings. Bespoke, individual, OOAK.
Hi, my name is Julie Frazer and I love designing and creating unique, individual jewellery. My work is very eclectic as I am inspired by just about everything from nature to books, architecture, films and music. My latest love is aluminium as I love painting so this is a perfect medium for creating unique OOAK hand painted designs.
I have always been creative and loved making items from a very early age. Making paperweights with memories of the seaside and pebbles picked up on holidays and in rock caves, sketching, beading, painting and pottery.
Now I always have a sketchbook with me so that I can doodle my design ideas as soon as they pop into my head! I also collect semi precious gemstones, rough cut stone, tumblestones, drilled stones all ready and waiting to be incorporated into a design.
I love working with metal, gemstones, enamel and patinas to create my designs. I usually sketch out my ideas then modify when and where needed when I start working with my silver and gemstones. I cut, fire, solder, hammer, texture, patina and enamel the metal as required for my design and set any gemstones before sending off to the Goldsmiths' assay office to hallmark.
Please note if you wish to have a custom made design for silver under 7.7grams a hallmark is not required but I do prefer to have the hallmark on all my work except earrings as due to the small size the hallmarking would be lasered to avoid damaging the item and this does incur an extra cost.
I hope you like my creations as much as I enjoy designing and making them.
