Julia Turner takes the materials in her jewelry to the breaking point. “My method when making jewelry usually involves pushing a particular material, process or idea to some kind of breaking point. As I experiment more and more with a specific approach and become more discerning about
what I see emerging, I begin to see the unnecessary elements fall away, leaving room for a more
straightforward kind of interaction to take place.”
I am including a photo of Julia’s new studio in a former commercial linen laundry in San Franciso’s Mission District. What an inspirational place to work…love the lighting…and soooooooooooooo many ‘toys’!
