Drawing inspiration from the world around her, Julie Ryan instinctively knows how to translate arresting colors and shapes into jewelry with an evident, easy elegance. Thriving on the nuances of color, Julie’s line — which incorporates shells, freshwater pearls, coral and semi-precious stones — includes classic blues and whites, vibrant pinks and oranges, the hues of the sea, and other intriguing combinations sure to be admired.
Born and raised in Massachusetts — a New England girl at heart — Julie embraced life in Virginia when she moved from Boston to Alexandria in 2001. From townhouses to stately residences, her successful interior design business stamped the living spaces with color palettes and vignettes. She delighted clients who welcomed her discerning eye, use of natural motifs, and love of all things chinoiserie.
Julie currently resides in Richmond, where she has curated a home rich in color and texture consistent with her signature coastal style. She personally designs each piece of jewelry while onlookers Derby and Ferguson feign interest in the creative process. Whether you are dressing for the office or an evening celebration, we hope you will enjoy wearing your Julie Ryan designs as much as she enjoys creating them!
