Julez Jewelry, the brainchild of Julez Bryant, is a brand that originated in San Diego, and from an endearing story. A small charm was gifted to the designer by a dear friend who lost his life to cancer one that inspired her “to live in the moment.” Her brand honors that intention with pieces hand forged in her studio on the Southern California coastline displaying a love of bold shapes with soft, satin finishes and handhammered touches.

Give people a reason to talk about you by breaking the rules!
