Titus has been succesfully released and detailed photos have been added to the gallery of the website. An experimental short movie called Follow has also been added to the official Vimeo account.

These next few months I will focus on creating new projects to push the envelope even further for Jules Joseph. Bigger stories, more intricate details, experiments and more creative freedom. Currently I also have three assignments for custom pieces for which I am very excited. More about that coming soon.

Keep an eye on the website for upcoming updates and changes!

Titus release

one_finaltwo_final

Tristan was born near the seaside where he lived in peace. Even though he was lonely, music comforted him. Gathering objects and making trinkets he made peace with the forest and the sea. As years passed loneliness caught up with him and he moved to the city trying to find some company and a future.

Titus continues the story of Tristan years later. Tristan has moved to the city, studied and lived there for seven years. Now completely drained because of working fulltime, partying with fake friends and falling in love with the wrong kind of people he lingers for a return to his roots and the brand new start that was promised.

Titus explores his roots intertwined with the coldness of the big city. Hidden treasures between concrete and steel are soon to be uncovered. But Tristan has already become Titus from the city. Is there still time for a great escape?

Today is the release of Titus.

The collection consists of four unique and limited pieces. Three necklaces and a choker of which two contain leather. Prices are twenty euros for the necklaces except for the choker which is twelve euros.

The photoshoot for the collection mirrors the original photoshoot of the Tristan collection which featured the blinding light of candles and darkened eyes. Titus has opened his eyes and got used to the bright lights of life in the city but is desperate for a quick escape.

Titus will be the last collection of 2016 in order to prepare for 2017. Keep an eye on the website for upcoming updates and changes as the final parts of the Reboot will take place.

Titus

In the wake of Reboot a new concept was born called Titus.

Titus continues the story of Tristan years later. Tristan has moved to the city, studied and lived there for seven years. Now completely drained because of working fulltime, partying with fake friends and falling in love with the wrong kind of people he lingers for a return to his roots and a brand new start.

Titus explores his roots intertwined with the coldness of the big city. Hidden treasures between concrete and steel are soon to be uncovered. But Tristan has already become Titus from the city. Is there still time for a great escape?

Consisting of four original pieces Titus is scheduled for a November release. Just before Christmas it will be the last collection of 2016.

Productive year

gold1finalsmall silver1finalsmall

Reboot has marked the beginning of a new chapter of Jules Joseph. But like any new chapter it is only just the beginning. Last year five jewelry collections were released. This year the Square cycle, a musical project, was released alongside brand new videos and my first solo exposition showcasing paintings, jewelry, video and music.

These last three months will conclude this productive year and raise the bar for next year. Reboot was but a small teaser of a collection. The next collection will probably be the last of this year with six collections being released next year. If all goes well next year will end with another exposition focussing around those six collections.

Reboot

rebootpromo

Reboot is here. This collection marks te full revision and return to jewelry. When I started Jules Joseph I wanted to make affordable and unique jewelry. And I will continue to do so. My jewelry has always been genderless, and Reboot underlines that statement.

The collection was inspired by the song ‘Propaganda’ by Kill J. The song, in a nutshell, is about the artist once being told she had to much opinion and no fuckability and that she would never make it in the bussiness. Propaganda is the song she wrote about it. Sexism is everywhere and it angers me to the bone.

Two necklaces. One silver and one, for the first time, golden. A simple, yet sleek design with spikes. Three long ones in silver, three short ones in gold. Prices are ten euros for the silver piece and fifteen euros for the golden piece.

About Me

Martijn Jules Joseph Winkel is a graphic designer from Rotterdam with a specialization in art & design. He has also finished a study in Desktop Publishing – Allround. Besides graphic design, making jewelry is his passion.

His passion for jewelry emerged at an early age, first by collecting minerals and gemstones on his travels through Europe, which later connected to jewelry. He started making his own necklaces and bracelets when he couldn’t find the type of male jewelry that he wanted.

‘Male jewelry found in regular clothing stores has a very simple and plain style, while more exciting looking jewelry is often way too expensive for my taste’.

That was the foundation for Jules Joseph jewelry. Unique but affordable jewelry with a story.
