Handmade Jewellery using Gemstones, Pearls, Crystal & Glass Welcome to Jewels & Desires online Jewellery shop - my name is Julie Parker and I am based in Cumbria on the outskirts of the Lake District and design and make my own jewellery. You can see my designs here or come & see them at one of my 'On the Road' venues.
Even though the range of jewellery available on the high street is huge, it is often difficult to find a piece that makes the statement you desire to give your outfit that final classy touch - Jewels & Desires is all about that! I strive to give my handmade jewellery designs a classic look that will not age, whilst making them look both stunning, unique & affordable.
For my handmade gemstone jewellery I have concentrated on using semi-precious gemstones to give a chunky look that is made more interesting by the individual markings on each stone. To balance the chunkier items I also make jewellery using Freshwater Pearls, Swarovski crystals and glass beads. This gives you a wider variety of choice in the level of statement you want to make - from chunky, fun or sparkly to delicate and neutral.My handmade jewellery is grouped into three main ranges each offering a choice of necklaces, earrings and bracelets in a range of colours. Nearly all necklaces have earrings to match but I'm never up to date with the website (!!) so email me if you are after earrings to match a necklace. If you don't see something in the right colours for you then please get in touch and I will see whether I can help. I do have some Sterling Silver jewellery but if you see a design you like that does not have silver components, please get in touch & I will try to produce it with silver.
