verre is the french word for glass. every piece ofjewelry is handmade by the designers. they believe that simple iselegant and that less is more.jesspanza is a self-taught glass worker. after studying goldsmithing shecame to the conclusion that all gold jewelry looked the same. shestudied french casting techniques, lost wax mold-making and pate deverre at urban glass in brooklyn. she met julie burton at urban glasswhere she worked on projects for architects and designers. glass seemedlike the perfect substance to meld with metal and save her from themediocrity of traditional jewelry. she is inspired by things bothsensible and natural.
julieburton really likes glass. after a six week class in glass blowing atthe rhode island school of design, she promptly dropped out of school.she was a glass blower on a mountain in tennessee, and met her businesspartner, jess panza, at urban glass in brooklyn, new york. julie doesnot like jewelry and has no background in the art. becoming a jewelrydesigner seemed like the perfect career move. jess gave julie a fiveminute lesson in lampworking. she takes her inspiration wherever andwhenever she can get it.
verre newyork is made in Los Angeles, made in California, made in the USA.
