JUL Designs

“Handmade” describes a distinction between designs stamped out in factories in huge quantities by machines and those designs that are literally built by hand. JUL designs involving precious metals and semi-precious stones can not be compared to mass-produced hardware, but should instead truly be considered “jewelry” made by skilled artisans.

We strive to offer interesting hardware options at different price points. We are also committed to offering truly exceptional quality that can only come from items carefully constructed by hand as well as items hand cast in studio casting houses in the US rather than production casting factories overseas.

We work directly with clothing and bag designers to develop integral bag jewelry and accessory designs in unconventional materials. Many JUL metal designs are created by Laura Bellows in wax, cast by hand in silver, and later reproduced in US casting studios in non-precious metals.
Other designs are generated in conjunction with Balinese co-designer Agus Astradhi and made by hand in Bali. For some items, prototypes are created by hand in Bali and produced in the US.
