#DECAF19 emerging artist:

Hi! I’m Juliet, I’m a student at Wexford Collegiate School of the Arts, in the Visual Media Arts program.

I really enjoy making clothing and have been doing so for 10 years. As I grew older I developed an interest in jewelry making and design. I started with small charms made from wire and seaglass 2 years ago, and it has developed into more clean cut style and varied designs. I started learning on my own at home, then after venturing into more complicated styles, I have also learned a lot from coworkers and friends. I have been at a few craft sales where I sold my merchandise, and I found even when people did not want to buy anything they were very nice to talk to and it made me happy to be in a place where people want to talk about crafting and making new items.
