"People or organisations sometimes need something created that is either special or specialist. They value our pieces because they are made the slow way, just as glass was prior to the industrial revolution – Labour intensive and reliant on the skills acquired over a long, international apprenticeship"
"One of the ten wonders of the Viking Kingdom. The Pagan Lady Necklace is between 1,000 - 1,500 years old and consists of 56 beads made from glass, faience, amber and jet. National heritage asked Julie Anne to create an exact replica of this necklace which the public would be allowed to touch and experience. This project took four months to complete and involved measuring, drawing and photographing every bead before attempting their replication using the ancient beadmaking methods."
"Commissioned by the Tate with jeweller Tess Blenkinsop to create three collections of jewellery inspired by the artists Turner, Whistler & Monet to coincide with the travelling exhibition of the same name"
This piece is called 'That's No Way To Say Goodbye', and it was commissioned by someone who fell in love with someone from a foreign country and unfortunately they had to part; but he will never ever forget her. This piece is a homage to her and his undying love."
