Featured Local Jewelry Designer ~ Jules Cechony

My love of making jewelry has been growing since I can remember. My mother had beautiful jewelry and I was mesmerized by it. I was 12 when I made my first bracelet and took classes in high school and college always using jewelry making as a hobby never thinking of myself as an artist. Eight years ago I was lucky enough to have my good friend, Linda Sabee, owner of Carmilia's, tell me to stop giving it away and start selling it! All of my jewelry is handmade by me with the stones carefully selected. I use their cut and color to lead my way using only sterling silver, fine silver and 14kt gold fill metals. Although I do have some designs that I mass-produce, most are one of a kind pieces that can be worn whether you are dressing up or down, t-shirt and jeans or a black tie affair!
Many styles are available at Carmilia's. Watch for upcoming trunk show on November 18 at Carmilia's where the entire lovely collection will be on display and available for purchase!
