Julie Romanenko Jewelry Artist
Julie Romanenko counts her youthful fascination with her grandmother's pearls as the seed that blossomed into a career in jewelry design. By age eleven she was fashioning her own creations, friendship bracelets strung of liquid silver beads. She pursued her passion after college, working in New York's diamond district and taking classes at the Parsons School of Design. Her own designs soon gained attention and a collection was born, one that today extends from the naturalistic to the fanciful, the everyday to the extraordinary.
