Big change in 2023. But first...2022 was an extremely challenging year for me. This past spring I had 2 urgent eye surgeries for a condition that can cause sudden and permanent blindness. Scary but successful.
A month or so later I was diagnosed with breast cancer. That journey lasted the remainder of the year with surgery and treatments, which I recently completed. Now I have 5-7 years of hormone therapy ahead of me and I hope the hard part is behind me.
For these reasons, I was not up to working for most of 2022.
I have now decided that it is time for me to retire. So I will be closing Judith Altman Designs by the end of 2023. That involves liquidating both my on-hand finished jewelry pieces and my raw materials.
CUSTOMERS - stay tuned for sales this year with progressive discounts, starting at 30% off of my wholesale prices. Over time I will increase that discount percentage for remaining items until my inventory is sold down.
Everything is one of a kind, so jump at it early if you love it. You take your chances waiting for a bigger discount.
Either way, the deals will be amazing and the prices the lowest I have ever offered.
JEWELRY DESIGNERS - I will be selling off supplies, including many antique and rare pieces that I have obtained on my global travels. Tibetan silver repoussé pendants, carved Chinese jade, antique Indian silver from Rajasthan, European medallions, etc. As well as stones, beads, chain, pearls, etc.
I will be pricing them at, or below, what I paid for them.
Feel free to reach out to me (click the CONTACT link above to send an email) if you want to discuss bulk purchases or any particular interests before I am able to get things up online.
My jewelry journey has brought me so much joy and satisfaction for more than 2 decades. Thank you for your support of my work all these years. I don't exactly know what is next for me but I will share it as I discover it.
Meanwhile, stay tuned for major sales!

Zoom into my Studio: Personal Shopping Experience
I have started offering a personal shopping experience with me in my studio via Zoom and it has turned out to be loads of fun.
Let me know in advance what you are interested in, styles, colors, lengths, etc. and I will curate a collection of possibilities for you.
I will show you each piece, tell you a little about the history and meaning of it, even try it on for you.
Pick what you want, pay an online invoice and then I will ship your goodies off to you the next day.
Let me know if you are interested in "Zooming into my Studio" to shop with me!
