My Name is Julie and I’m the jewellery designer behind Bold Lines Jewellery. I’m passionate about designing and making contemporary jewellery, using hand sketches/3D or wax designs with both traditional and modern techniques to make each piece of jewellery.
I arrived in Ireland over 10 years ago from Paris where I worked in a Music School and finished my Master Degree in Art & project Management. Since I was a child, I always had a passion for art and design. Architecture, interior design and nature are my main inspirations and I also take a lot of inspiration from my environment and the people I meet.
Each piece is lovingly made to order, by hand and designed with longevity in mind in my studio in Kildare. I repurpose old unused jewellery into timeless wearable pieces that can be enjoyed and loved for a lifetime. I also design bespoke pieces from scratch, sourcing fine metals and gemstones.
A few years ago, I designed my own wedding ring and reused my grandmother’s ring and diamonds to make my new ring. I love the idea of the Before and After process and I find it so rewarding to see my customers fall in love again with their new jewellery piece! My goal is to capture each of my clients unique personality, journey and style and reflect this in each custom piece I design.
