Juno James Jewellery
Amanda Brady of Juno James Jewellery, designs and makes original pieces using mostly Sterling Silver and Gold-filed wire and chain. She knits and/or crochets her items and combines new and vintage beads to create compelling and unique jewellery. Italian tubular wire ribbon, “Silver Silk", pre-knitted & coated copper craft wire and resin are used alone or combined to produce some of the items.
Amanda's Irish Beach Stone collection uses many of the methods already outlined, but pebbles from the Irish Coast are the point of focus. The stones are carefully chosen for colour, quality and shape and each piece is created to reflect it's uniqueness. As every stone by it’s nature is different to another, Juno James Jewellery presents every customer with a one-of-a-kind product.
For Communion and Confirmation children, she has a stunningly simple collection, while staying true to the spiritual nature of the occasion, offers a more contemporary twist on traditional products. For boys, there is a pared down version of the ubiquitous Communion/Confirmation rosette, a simple ribbon brooch with a sterling silver cross charm. Also available for boys is a leather necklace and bracelet each with a sterling silver cross charm which any boy would be proud to show off on his big day. Girls aren't left out with sterling silver angel or cross charm necklaces and bracelets with Swarovski pearl detail. Also proving popular with the younger and older girls is the new range of stunning Swarovski pearl bracelets and necklaces. Many of these pieces are presented as gifts to flower girls, bridesmaids and ring bearers and alternative coloured beads and charms can be used to match the theme of the wedding day.
JunoJames Jewellery takes commissions.
