Julie Crusenberry  dba Steph’s Jewels

Julie loves making jewelry – her latest collection is created using repurposed, altered and up-cycled vintage parts.  It’s a very unique technique very popular at art & craft shows, boutiques and on-line at

Julie frequents Estate Sales, Antique Sows and Flea Markets searching for vintage pieces that need to be rescued and given new life.  A time-worn look adds to the vintage charm of the jewelry collection.

*A vintage clip-on earring becomes a wire-wrapped statement ring.

*An antique Art Deco rhinestone brooch becomes a focal point on a collage necklace.

*Vintage buttons are attached together to form a unique bracelet.

Julie’s daughter, Stephanie, taught her the craft of making jewelry.  Since she was a little girl, Stephanie has been teaching herself how to make jewelry.  The business name, Steph’s Jewels, is a combination of their two nicknames.
