Featured artist RockerJewlz

Today I would like to introduce to you, a multi talented and creative lady, Julie, from RockerJewlz. Julie entered my "Name that Necklace" contest in January, where she placed second, winning a feature spot here on my blog. Julie creates fabulous jewelry and many of her pieces are designed using very delicious looking cupcake beads. The cupcakes come in many "flavors" and color combinations including chocolate for all you chocoholics out there! I just want to jump right in and eat these, they are so adorable! Not only does she design jewelry, but she also makes darling seasonal stickers and confetti. There are items for all occasions, birthdays, showers, holidays and very cute girlie themes as well. Check out all her Easter themed goodies featuring spring chicks, colored eggs, bunnies and ducks that are in her shop now. I could go on and on, but please go see for yourself!

Please visit her Etsy shops, RockerJewlz and MomsArt and check out her sweet items!

Here is what Julie had to say about herself and her art:


My thanks to Susan at www.hotrocksglassjewels.blogspot.com for featuring me on her blog this month!

I’m a mom who was looking for a project when my only child entered college and my free time opened wide. A friend introduced me to lampwork glass beads and I was totally hooked. The flow of light through glass has always fascinated me but I had no idea what to do with the beads if I bought them. My friend Gloria suggested designing jewelry. So after a few beginner classes, I was ready to form RockerJewlz Jewelry Designs and I had a blast building my own website at www.RockerJewlz.com.


I started out with simple pieces, focusing on using the amazing glass cupcake beads I was finding as featured in my Cupcake Elegance bracelet and Cherry Buttercream earrings. Cupcakes remain my most popular item and as of Valentine’s Day am making heart theme jewelry year round as well. Sterling silver, handcrafted silver from Bali & Thailand, hand dyed ribbons and other components are featured in my jewelry to provide a truly handmade, one of a kind (OOAK) work of wearable art you‘ll be proud to possess.


Glass artisan Payton Jett and I collaborated in 2008 to design some amazing larger than usual cupcake glass beads…my cupcake drawings came to life in her glass work as you see in the spectacular Deluxe Fantasy Dream Cupcake series, as in the Triple Valentine Pink Necklace on silk ribbon. Be sure to see the solid silver cupcakes she designed too!

In 2008 I also fulfilled a crafting desire by opening a paper crafts shop at MomsArt.etsy.com in tribute to my mother’s artistic endeavors. She used to draw flowers colored with pencils for all of our family’s birthday, anniversary and special celebration cards. Eventually I will be reproducing those. For now, you can find really fun confetti & stickers that I hand punch in my home studio. Cinderella shoes, castles, baby shower themed items along with, yes, cupcakes, hearts, and birds are just some of the fun shapes you’ll find there. Ribbon & buttons are also featured.



Custom design in jewelry and paper crafts is what I love most as collaborating with new clients that become fast friends is fun beyond compare.

This year I am adding giveaways to my blog at www.RockerJewlz.blogspot.com so be sure to visit me there to win some awesome goodies.
