Trudy's love of jewelry design began in high school when she took a class in goldsmithing. Today, she combines the techniques she learned in these classes with a wide variety of high quality and unique materials from around the world.
The shapes, colors, details and asymmetrical balance found in nature serve as Trudy's design inspiration.
Since 2002, when Trudy James Unique Handcrafted Jewelry was founded, the artist has designed and created each piece of jewelry by hand in her San Diego area studio. Because of their handcrafted nature, each design is one-of-a-kind. Special attention is given to details and craftsmanship. In a world where, more and more, items are mass produced, Trudy's commitment to providing unique and artistic jewelry designs has set her apart from the mainstream.
