Mattie Jules  - Creative Ring Art and Jewelry Designs 
First the name - Mattie Jules.

My son Bryan - 12 at the time - came up with the name.  My daughter is Madison (tho' we call her Mattie) and  close friends call me Jules.

So started the Mattie Jules era.- sounds pretty catchy being jewelry and all, eh?

I've always loved to work with my hands... knitting, cross-stitch, gardening, etc.

So when I started making jewelry over 12 years ago, it was 'my' time. The kids (and hubby) could hang out with me (tho' I wasn't the best company I imagine), but it was my time to decompress after work and just let my mind go somewhere else... maybe for 10 minutes, maybe for 2 hours.

Eventually my jewelry gifts to friends and family created more requests to make jewelry and especially rings - lots and lots of rings !
So I created MattieJules.

While I still dabble in the core jewelry - bracelets, necklaces and earrings - my love  is button rings.

Whether using modern, funky, traditional or nostalgic vintage buttons (I'm so hooked!), each ring is different - and most are one-of-a-kind !

This is how it works when I'm at arts festivals and craft shows or RING PARTIES. 

I have pre-made items (some people just like to choose from finished items) - I have many beautiful pieces already made.

Otherwise, you can choose from a huge selection of buttons and I make it for you on the spot just to your size.

If you're not a 'ring' person, buttons make great pendants and pins too - some of the larger vintage
buttons are just so perfect for that. And I'm so in love with vintage ! Did I say that already?

You can use one of your own special buttons or vintage jewelry pieces too ... like one of Grandma's earrings or a button from your favorite Aunts jar of buttons. You may think they look run-of-the-mill, but they work up into a beautiful memory that you can wear !!

One of my favorite stories - Jennifer cut the buttons off her husband's navy uniform and wears the ring and necklace so he's always close to her. (Sigh)
