Enameled steel & 22k gold dot striped earrings by Michigan artist, Julie Billups. These earrings are vitreous enamel on steel with 22k gold accent dots and 14k gold filled ear wires.
We love Julie Billup’s jewelry and hope you do, also. Julie attended art school in the 1980’s. However, she needed to delay a creative life for one of a surgeon, which can be creative, too. Julie is an oral surgeon and a mom of three. Her favorite things include her messy studio, her loud family, and cold red wine.
Julie has a need for her hands to be busy at all times. Whether she’s wrist deep in wisdom teeth or metal clay, she’s rarely idle.
Consequently, with a love of all things creative, Julie found a way to marry her passion for the arts with the skills she used every day as an oral surgeon. As a result, her style of using enamel, silver, and other metals came swimming into view! Her jewelry collection includes earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.
