Last month, I have discovered the brand You Are Young on Bijohrca jewellry fair and I had a crush on her feminine, modern, colorful and refined jewellry. I loved the brand spirit right from the start.
Completely under the spell of the brand and especially of the rings, my sisters offered me one as a birthday present. Five days after having received it, the designer Julie contacts me and suggests to meet in her worshop. I accept it right away because anyway, I would have presented it to you.
In fact, Julie has always been attracted to creation. Very young, she already makes her own accessories and dreams of being able to pair her jewellry to her outfits. Her first earrings collection “les Pomponettes” is a joyful assembly of colorful pompons that she developed while she was still a student. It is a real success among her friends and family. Then, she continues creating while working until September 2013 when she decided to found her own brand. You Are Young is born!
For the anecdote, YAY acronym comes from the Lebanese refrain “Yay Chou Hélou” that means in English “Wow it’s so beautiful”. Julie has often heard it and wanted to integrate it to her brand name. Her origins also inspire her creations that reflect the Mediterranean spirit.
Through her jwellry, Julie communicates her vision of the woman : a beautiful, elegant, modern and reckless woman who loves freedom. This spirit is retranscribed in her collections that are named with female characters : La Sultane, les Précieuses, les Twenties… Behind each collection, we discover these women’s stories through amazing poetic texts written by Julie herself (you can read them on her blog).
The jewellry are easy to wear and are suitable both for work during the day and for party at night. They are made with precious materials to resist to time : silver 921, gold filled, cultured pearls, Swarovski cristals and fine stones.
I now let you discover Julie’s workshop through a few pictures. I really liked discovering her working environment which is very warm and bright and I found it very well decorated.
Have a nice day and see you tomorrow on the blog and Instagram for a new giveaway. You will be able to try your luck to win a YAY jewellry. And don’t forget the daily vote to the AGolden Blog wards here (only 5 days left to vote)! Thanks for your help.
