We know what you're thinking. Why does this necklace cost $89? They're not pearls or diamonds or some precious stones. "It's just some beads."
Julio Designs creates handmade fashion jewelry in Frisco, Texas, selling the pieces through a wide variety of retail stores internationally. The handmade jewelry is a modern fusion of vintage components and contemporary materials, resulting in a unique, yet current look. All of the jewelry reflects the designer’s eclectic and upbeat personal style resulting in a broad array of product variation. In addition to the unique design elements, Julio Designs is distinguished from other jewelry companies by utilizing ‘soccer mom labor’ providing an ideal work/life balance environment for women.
It may be, in reality, "just some beads". But the fact is, some women just like you have been paid a fair wage for their work, craftsmanship, time and talent. When you put those values into your work and you are paid fairly, things cost. Ladies, it's up to us to stand up for each other, for our labor and our families. This necklace was handmade by someone in the USA who is taking her time and giving great care to her work, and she is being compensated accordingly. With American labor comes higher quality and thus a higher price. Yes, you might find something similar at $20, but with this piece you can carry with you a story and the knowledge that you are truly supporting American labor. This is what it is about. Is it worth it? That's up to you. After all, "it's just some beads".
