Julie grew up with horses in her life, and her love for all that is associated with them, has endured over time. Her father created beautiful saddles and bridles, and also taught lessons in leather work out of their home.
It seems that Julie Barber has come full circle and embraced her father’s love of working with leather.
Her unique jewelry designs are made from leather, European silver and Swarovski crystals. She takes great pride and pleasure in creating and women have responded amazingly to her work, stating that her pieces are beautiful, simplistic, of high quality and are affordable.
The relationships she has developed with women through her jewelry and the market scene, has been powerful, rewarding and fun for her!
