When we first opened Urban Pearl 4 years ago as a mobile boutique, we met Julie of Julie Ellyn Designs when she contacted us about carrying her handmade jewelry. We knew as soon as we saw her designs it was a great fit with our store’s vibe. Over the years she’s designed one-of-a-kind bracelets, necklaces and earrings for us. We were thrilled last October when Julie called to tell us she was going to open her own store right up the street from us!
If you have not checked out Julie Ellyn Designs - Handmade on Main, you are surely missing out. Her beautiful, quaint space is filled with her own handmade jewelry as well as an assortment of other handmade products by local vendors. Most exciting of all, she is now offering weekly, hands-on, DIY workshops! We could not be more excited to join in on the fun ourselves. All ages and skill levels are welcome!
Julie Ellyn Designs offers a wide range of workshops from bracelets, to essential oils, to fairy gardens. Be sure to look on her web page (www.julieellyndesigns.com) to see what new DIY's are being offered. There you can browse, register, and prepay for any of the workshops you are interested in participating in. She is also offering private DIY parties for any occasion. She will work with you to design the project and make it age/group appropriate. Just give her a call or stop in and say hi to her and her trusty companion Charlie!
