Mirva Member Feature

Julie Duggan Designs

Julie Duggan has spent the last 30 years working with gemstones and designing jewellery. Having travelled the world and lived in such stunning places as India and Italy she says it’s been easy for her to find inspiration for her designs.
Julie now lives in the beautiful UK County of Cornwall, working from a converted stables nestled in the countryside and looking over the water.
On her working process Julie says "I begin my design journey by purchasing the gemstones directly from their source.
Once I see the stones, the creative process takes over and I begin to play with the colour, drawing inspiration from my travels and from nature.
The silver work is always designed around the gemstones, which are then set with open backs. This enables them to be worn against the skin and to be seen in their best light.
Every piece is unique due to this handmade process.I feel incredibly lucky to have such an amazing home in Cornwall and work with the stones that I love."

You can find more of Julie's work HERE via her website, and Julie is a firm favourite at our Mirva Collective Popup Galleries in Penzance ( next session begins in April more news on that soon!) and she also regularly exhibits her beautiful silver and gemstone jewellery across Cornwall and beyond at events and festivals.
