Happy New Year to All! On with the new and out with the old. It’s been a long long run of our favourite 11mm White Pearl Stud Earring.
It’s taken me about a year to source the upgraded size pearls of 12 mm. I then I had to source the exact sterling silver components I needed to make up the pearls into these fabulous new earrings. I have been busy busy – most of the day matching up sets of pearls and adding the backs and butterfly closures to them. Then they need to be carded and coded. This all takes time but – Voila! here they are. I am incredibly happy to announce these new stocks of 12mm White Pearl stud earrings in sterling silver. Here are just a few.
I have kept the item number the same but you will receive the 12 Pearl studs when you order from this link. Enjoy and happy new year for 2020
I rally took my time with this range. mariko likes Mother of the Bride or classical nice quality white pearl jewellery designs and i always like to oblige by creating styles only for Mariko Boutiques. I used to do this for many of my outlets around Australia and now due to the times I only have two and my own online stores. Never the less the beauty of white pearls really speak for themselves and yet something completely special and different is what I try to create for the customers there. I like to launch a few times a year at Mariko and love the support and enthusiasm I always get from the staff there. Always helpful and always genuine.
Along with some other lovely Black and White Bracelets I made yesterday I have been requested to make some pearls bracelets with my own hand made charms. I love having a project to do and felt inspired – here are the two just made with gemstone highlights.
Fun day today catching up on all my Etsy listings. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and that was to add a beautiful variety of pearl bracelets to my little Etsy store Julleen Jewels on Etsy. Here are some with the models showing how they look on. Really important for most of us to see this
So proud today as the fabulous Maggie Dent wears her brand new Julleen Black Pearl Earrings on her latest video on her Facebook Page. Maggie discusses a not often discussed topic of how Parents should manage their young children’s fears in a crisis situation. She refers to bush fires here and what can make children feel useful and how to comfort them with so much footage of the daily blazes. She tells us how to let our kids slip into action to help calm their fears. I really enjoyed this video and am sure it will be helpful to many parents out there who will benefit from this
Of course on a lighter note Maggie looks amazing as always in this latest video Maggie told me she is flat out at the moment but this amazing woman still manged to let me know she made this new helpful video and posted it to her Facebook page and!! she was wearing her new earring. What a woman! Respect!

I had a fantastic day at the Melbourne Cup this year at the Swan Yacht Club along with some other fabulous gals where we all had such a great time. The outfits were simply amazing of course and it was wonderful to see the efforts some ladies went to with their outfits. I am happy to have won a raffle prize a basket of goodies on the day. Pic just in of my little win. Although didn’t back the winner, of the Cup this day really is not all about winning, it’s about the amount of energy and good will this day brings to our nation. On this day there’s enough to spread the length of Australia, it lift our spirits for weeks
I wore Red and discovered a good little milliner from the UK on Etsy this year. I just wanted something that had been hand made yet professionally finished and that’s exactly what I got. See for yourself. A bit of a hat although actually a lovely fascinator.
I think there will be alot of green this year worn at Melbourne Cup Lunches this Tuesday. I have a fabulous collection of Peacock Green pearl jewellery that may interest you. This colour just keeps coming back to life in the fashion world and that’s why it remains one of my firm favourites for any event.
It took 50 years for this little tale to come to a happy ending. Recently a lady purchased a pair of hand made white mabe pearl earrings in a clip on from my Etsy e-Boutique. I just love my little Etsy store as some of my customers kindly share stories on why they choose a particular piece. Here’s a ripper!
I found this tale so unique I just had to share it. An American couple was posted here in Perth, Australia in the 60’s and they bought a lovely pearl bracelet which remains a constant memory of a happy time, spent here. This bracelet was handed down to the grand daughter, who one day sees a pair of earrings that match her Gran’s bracelet and they are in Julleen Jewels on Etsy. The granddaughter who wears her bracelet every day, bought the earrings from my store and they arrived in the USA yesterday. Her set of pearl jewellery is now complete. What are the odds on someone living in USA has a bracelet her Gran bought in Perth in the 60’s then ends up not just finding a match anywhere but actually purchasing it from a Perth designer. Such a nice story
Please read her review on my Etsy store. It’s just fabulous!
I need more stars to review Julia and her shop. She has incredible customer service skills plus she has a great sense of humor. In the 1960s, my grandmother lived in Perth for about a year and bought the bracelet in the picture below before returning home to California. Fast forward 50+ years and I buy an incredible pair of handmade pearl earrings that are a perfect match. And they came from South Perth! The earrings are gorgeous and will be my go to staples. Simple and elegant just like Gram’s bracelet.
Hot off the press, this gorgeous necklace I just completed today. With a lovely Silver White Baroque Australian Pearl, cage set, with a Round Emerald and emerald cut Garnet, set en the diamond, Sterling Silver Pendant, strung on the peacock green, ice white and champagne pearls. Beautiful natural rubies and emerald facetted beads, make the necklace complete.
Great to see the clip on pearl earring becoming popular again and the neat no nonsense “close fit to the ear lobe” clip on design. There are many of us who don’t want to pierce their ears but find it quite difficult to get clip on earrings of any sort to say nothing of a pearl clip on earring. Enter Julleen Jewels with a wonderful array of bezel set pearls.
When a clip on on the back of an earring is required it needs a saucer base for the actual lever back clip to sit on. This requires more metal to make a flat spacious surface for a clip on to be soldered to, rather than say, a simple post being added to the back of a pearl for the stud style.
This is where expertise comes in handy. The dying art of setting pearls into bezel bases is not handled by many jewellers today as it’s a job that requires using hand made (hands on) skills, understandably it’s not high on the list of designs to make, as the percentage of people with pierced ears is quite high, therefore the lower percentage belongs to those who do not and so why bother catering to them. The person requiring a clip on sits around 30 percent. Therefore you can understand why jewellery makers tend to go for the easier design and cater largely to people with piercings. I saw a niche in the market here and as I fall into the category of non pierced ear women, well, you can see why I chose to make a good variety of clip on earrings in pearl and some, if not as many, gemstone clip ons. I don’t do hallmarked gold settings but I do make Hallmarked Sterling with pure gold microns (vermeil).
I am very proud to say at Julleen we have loads of lovely bezel set pearl clip on earrings. I lovely new selection of recently made earrings in gold vermeil are now available in my Etsy store. Take a look see, you may find just the most perfect earring that will last for decades right here.
