Julie Prunier Vecchio
French artist Julie Prunier-Vecchio specializes in hand-engraved, nature-inspired jewelry executed in traditional, Old-World techniques. Prunier Vecchio's jewelry designs transform graceful details of the natural world into wearable sculpture. Individually crafted and distinguished by impeccable hand-engraving. Each piece takes on a life of its own, while its organic contours complement the form of the woman or man who wears it.
Julie graduated from the “Ecole Boulle” in Paris, where she specialized in hand-engraving, and was the apprentice of renowned jewelry creator Michael Van. She then moved to Geneva, Switzerland, where she worked in a prestigious workshop, engraving miniature decors and micro sculpture on high-end collectible watches for companies such as Vacheron Constantin, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Breguet. Today, Julie lives in the New York City area with her husband, a furniture restorer from Italy, and their three-year-old son. Here, she has started her own line, “Prunier Vecchio Creations”, to create the unique, inspired-by-nature kind of jewelry that she loves. She also provides custom design services, to bring to fruition the personal visions of her clients.
