Making a name for yourself in the jewelry business isn't easy, especially in New York, but Julie Nolan has not only survived but thrived in the fashion-obsessed metropolis that's overflowing with so much innovation. Designing for ten years, Nolan began her formal training halfway through with a course in fundamental jewelry techniques. After that, she apprenticed under Hannah Clark and then Randi Mates of Aesa Jewelry. It wasn't until Nolan started her own line in 2009, and sold her work at street fairs, that she experienced what she described as "character building."
Apparently, "It's not so easy conveying an air of sophistication and mystique when you're sandwiched between the World's Softest Socks and a Mozzarepa booth." With those days now behind her, Nolan has sold pieces to more than a dozen stores across the country and has forged more than a few high-end lines. With her new-found success and an interest in ancient texts and calendars, she has perfected her line of astrological pendants for all to enjoy and cherish.
