Press Release: Portland metal jewelry artisan launches long-anticipated online shop June 9, 2015 14:30
Jewelry lovers across the U.S. can now access Julie Cooper's popular stackable jewelry, made right here in Southeast Portland.
Portland, Oregon - June 15, 2015
Julie Cooper, designer of the wildly popular "Jules Hoops" launched her online store to women across the country today. Previously available only to those of us living in or visiting Portland, Oregon, artistic jewelry lovers outside Portland will now have access to the Julie Cooper experience.
Julie's storefront in the historic Clinton Street Neighborhood has been a favorite of women for many years. Her popularity spread quickly at the introduction of her "Jules Hoops" earrings, a handmade textured take on the traditional hoop earrings we all have in our jewelry collection.
Julie's non-traditional take on traditional styles, as well as the "one of a kind" feeling of each handmade piece is what resonates with her clients. She consults with every customer that walks in the door to find a piece that will really fit their personal style.
"I've always enjoyed the interaction with my customers. The right piece of jewelry always finds the right person. It's serendipity."
When Julie's phone started blowing up with out-of-state orders, she knew it was time to take the leap to online sales. She hired a marketing director and web designer to create julie-cooper.com, and followed that with a professional photo shoot showing her own clients wearing her jewelry.
"My dream is to one day travel the world, picking out metals and gems with which to make my creations. Taking my business online to a national marketplace is the next step in reaching that goal."
