Julie Sharp – Jewelry

Julie has been making jewelry for over 10 years.  She loves working with natural stones and has been influenced by her love of Colorado, working with such stones as turquoise, tiger eye,  carnelian, and jasper, to name a few.  She has added the fun activity of making earrings from guitar picks, some of which are made from vinyl records.  She has taken lessons in Colorado and Nashville and participated in several craft fairs in the Hendersonville/Gallatin area.  Her jewelry has been sold in two stores in Colorado and two in Nashville and is currently at the Rare Bird (Case B10) in Goodlettsville.  Having retired from over 35 years in college teaching of writing and technical communication, she now has time to devote to the art of jewelry making.  See samples of her jewelry at
