BOWEN jewelry was founded by Julie Bowen Meizels with the foundation based on high quality materials and spiritual embodiment.
With BOWEN Jewelry, Julie uses her well-honed eye and mixes 18K gold, semi-precious and precious stones, wooden beads (often in symbolic counts), combined with found natural treasures including sea shells and beach glass. The result is Bowen NYC: timeless, custom jewelry that complements all lifestyles.
Julie had a previous fashion affair at her clothing shop Spooly D’s. For ten years she was the shopgirl at the little boutique on Bleecker Street. At Spooly D’s, Julie brought together opposing but perfectly balanced ideas. The store offered an exquisitely curated selection of fashion and accessories with a mix of vintage, new designers, and one-of-a-kind pieces created by artisans.
A native New Yorker, Julie has always surrounded herself with beauty that blends with chaos. Inspired by the transformative practices of Kung-Fu, Kriya Yoga, and meditation, she completed a 200 hour Yoga training at Ishta in New York City.
Julie incorporates five important principles to her jewelry design philosophy: universal awareness; the five basic elements (fire, earth, water, metal, wood); the simplicity and importance of numbers; generosity; and the power of the divine in all of us.
With BOWEN NYC The concept of “giving” is always present: giving to one’s self, giving to a friend, and giving to the world.
