Yurga Juozapa currently lives in L.A. and has developed a collection that balances artisanal details with an infallibly playful spirit, inspired by the surrounding concrete jungle. The jewellery designer specialises in innovative details working with gemstones, diamonds and pearls.
Juozapa’s designs have been pictured on the likes of celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Brooke Shields and Julia Roberts and in a small amount of time - the label launched in 2015 - she has amassed a blogger reach including Courtney Trop, Erika Stas and Beata Tiskevic.
After four years asserting an artistic, minimal identity in the jewellery industry, June Nineteen is now stocked in luxury retailers: Just One Eye and Curve in L.A., V2 Concept Store and BASA Shop in Vilnius and BASA in Palanga, as well as a booming direct-to-consumer site. And SS’20 is looking to sell well too, presenting more of the kaleidoscope collection inspired by Donald Judd and some ambitious plans by Juozapa to: “reinvent the pearl”.
The June Nineteen wholesale collection is currently open for wholesale orders on ORDRE.com
