An interview with Julyah Rose

Tell us about your journey so  far

My name is Julyah Rose; I am an international model, actress, and singer. I was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, a suburb of Manhattan, New York City.  I grew up in a very large extended family in New Jersey, my mom was one of 5 children, and my father was one of 8 children.

I knew since I was a child that being a performing arts star was one of my major life’s goals.  I used to tell my parents as a kid that I wanted to go to Manhattan to be a child actor; I used to walk around Manhattan, admiring the fashion and glamour of it all. No one really took me seriously as a child saying I was going to be a big star one day because a lot of kids say that and the chance of actually making it as a model or actress or singer I think is like 1 in 1 million.

Despite having an unusual and difficult childhood I always preserved and worked towards accomplishing my goal. I told myself that whatever happened in my life I wouldn’t let any obstacles deter me from achieving my dream.

When I was 14 my family moved to a remote rural cattle farm in Arizona on the border of Mexico, there weren’t really any resources there for me to work on my career, so all I wanted was to get out of that small town to bigger opportunities. We lived on a dirt road and dug a 400ft well to access water; I woke up at 5 am and rode my bike a mile down the road to catch the school bus which was then an hour ride to school. I always kept my dreams in mind and never gave up, I worked hard in school and graduated at the top 5% of my class with a 4.2 GPA and won several scholarships to Arizona State University in Phoenix, Arizona, that was my ticket to bigger opportunities.  While in college I was accepted to a prestigious program to study abroad in Florence Italy, while studying abroad, earning my International Business Certificate, I began working with Italian fashion photographers to develop my portfolio, including Fabrizio Romagnoli, a famous Italian fashion photographer who published my photos on the Vogue Italia website.

Upon returning to Arizona, I signed with Courtier Model Management in Phoenix Arizona. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Communications in May 2014.

The day after graduation I moved to New York City to pursue my modeling, acting, and singing career full time. The first year living in New York was rough but as I began to become more recognized in the New York City fashion scene things got a bit easier. In the fall of 2015 I signed with one of New York’s most reputable fashion agencies Fenton Model Management. I have walked in New York Fashion Week for the past three years. Even though I’ve come all this way I am still just at the beginning of my modeling career and now I’m looking to expand full scale into singing and acting as well.

What made you want to become a jewellery designer? 

I wanted to use both my design and engineering skills in a creative environment

 

Which designers inspire your work? 

There is no one designer in particular that inspires my work. I gain inspiration from a variety of sources. 

 

Is the process of making jewellery hard?

Yes if you don’t have the correct technical training but not is you have received a good grounding in real fine jewellery making skills such as diamond-mounting and stone setting.

 

Do you ever get annoyed with the metal or the tiny diamonds when they don’t cooperate? 

Sometimes.

 

What has been your favourite piece you have made so far? 

Every piece I have made has something in it that makes it my favourite but my most favourite pieces are those which have won awards.

 

Do you have a set style throughout your works? 

No because I work to individually commissioned pieces which are often influenced by what the client would like included in the design.

 

How do you know a piece has been well designed? 

When it is beautiful, well-made and well-designed and is really wearable.

 

What jewellery designs are you working on at present?

A variety of fine jewellery pieces.
