Julie Merrill

I specialize in mixed metal jewelry and accessories, using steel, silver, brass, bronze, and copper. Through forging, fusing, soldering, and riveting, I create ancient yet contemporary designs. I incorporate the textures of bones, seeds, stones, feathers, and quills into my metalwork, creating life and story. I also include industrial elements such as clock gears, bullets, keys, and machine parts that juxtapose natures’ sacred beauty and suggest a mysterious curiosity within the human spirit. I create to reveal the quaint ruins of past and ethnic cultures to form objects of protection, beauty, emotion, and narrative.

Material: Jewelry
