Julie Picarello


As an award-winning artist, international instructor and author of “Patterns in Polymer: Imprint & Accent Bead Techniques”, Julie’s work has been featured in a variety of print publications as well as Beads, Baubles & Jewels TV.

Influenced by the computer circuits she designed for over two decades, and inspired by master artist Tory Hughes, in 2005 Julie became intrigued and completely focused on what she calls “Imprint Mokume”, an adaptation of an ancient Japanese metalworking technique that lends itself well to polymer clay.

She began experimenting with various tools and layering methods to create controlled rather than random patterns, and adding depth and dimension to her designs.

Julie’s wearable art reflects her love of color, symmetry and clean lines and she showcases the sophisticated depth and dimension of polymer with custom palettes, contrasting textures and her use of hardware and found objects.
