I first saw these jewels at Goldyn and although I was told the designer was based in Boulder it never really registered in my brain. Probably because I thought I knew everyone in the industry in all of Colorado, and also, antique inspiration doesn't come from Boulder - it comes from cities like London.
Marie-Juliette is a natural beauty with a vintage style - she looks like her brand. She's soft spoken but was so easy to talk to. We both moved to Colorado for her boyfriends - she moved from London, I moved from (the slightly closer) Philadelphia.
Marie-Juliette launched her line in July 2012, but has grown quickly - the pieces are available in countries all over the world while each piece is hand-made in the United States.
Once you try on these jewels it's obvious why this brand has become popular so quickly - the pieces are well-made and unique yet classic.
Marie-Juliette's favorite designs of the moment are these star rings which have a rock & roll edge.
I also am in love with - like, I've dreamt about it kind of love - her series of moon designs that feature moonstones. The designs she is working on now all include moonstones - which I cannot wait to see, especially after having seen the pretty pieces she's already created with the stone
It was wonderful to chat with Marie-Juliette - she is passionate about antique jewelry - including the symbolism of the shapes and stones - as well as creating beautiful things.
And jewelry is not Marie-Juliete's only passion, she is also a musician and has a music project called Blackbird and the Storm.
