I have long admired Point No Point studios for their romantic alternative bridal jewelry. In fact, if you covet rose gold, rose cut, and just yummy unique jewelry - No Point No Point is your new go-to. Bonus, everything is small-batch, handcrafted, recycled gold, ethical gemstones - basically, they have style and substance to boot. Founder Julie is a true creative working out of her Seattle studio to craft her amazing jewelry. We were lucky enough to score a one-of-a-kind exclusive piece (shown here) from her for the Dream Stacks pop up on gembreakfast.com and this interview to get to know her better!
What’s your favorite stone to work with?
My favorite stones to work with are natural rose cut diamonds. There are so many amazing unique colors and tones. Each one has its own distinct look, story, and history.
Tell me about your background and how you got into jewelry?
In 2009 I was working towards an accounting degree and took some metalsmithing classes on the side. I fell in love with metalsmithing and left accounting behind. I’ve been making jewelry ever since!
What’s your personal jewelry mecca?
I would love to visit the Argyle Mine in Australia, which produces rare naturally colored diamonds.
What’s your greatest inspiration?
My greatest inspiration is my 1 year old son. I want him to grow up knowing he has a strong mom that peruses her dream every day, and keeps pushing herself and her business to be the best it can be.
Why do you love what you do?
With jewelry design the sky is the limit; it’s boundless. I love how there are virtually no parameters and anything you can dream up, you can make. I love designing jewelry and making pieces that display and show off the best characteristics of each stone. I love all the different jewelry making methods and how each one forms its own unique look: hand carved wax, CAD design or fabrication.
What excites you about this project with Gem Breakfast?
Coming up with a set of rings to show to a new audience is very exciting for me. Something that is distinctively Point No Point Studio, but with a twist. For this set of rings, I used a sandblaster to get a unique beautiful Stardust/matte finish. I haven’t used the sandblasted finish before. One of the rings displays both a sandblasted and shiny finish. Two distinct finishes on a single ring give it a fresh feel and the attention to detail that customers love.
What sets your jewelry apart?
Creative pairings: natural one of a kind stones in modern and vintage settings.
