Jewellery manufacture is my passion and runs in my family. My Great, Great Grandfather Samuel Usher was a manufacturing jeweller based in the heart of the Birmingham jewellery quarter until 1935. I unknowingly picked up the family trade after a lapse of two generations. I discovered my jewellery family history when I was studying to be a jewellery designer and silversmith at the Birmingham School of Jewellery.
In 2004 after graduating, I set up Julia Usher Jewellery. I have been fortunate to make and design many unusual and exciting pieces of jewellery. I specialise in creating handmade memorial jewellery. I have a specialist workshop in Burton On Trent in Staffordshire. My memorial jewellery designs are contemporary and very unusual. I understand how hard it is to lose a loved one or special pet. I aim to give my customers great comfort through my designs. I work with cremation ashes, hair, burial soil and pet fur. I will create you a truly treasured piece of jewellery using your special memories. Your jewellery will allow you to keep your loved one close to you at all times.
If I can assist you further please feel free to contact me. my workshop telephone number is 01283 670810 or do feel free to email me at julia [!at] ashesintojewellery.com
I hope you enjoy look at my designs.
