After studying fine art at the Corcoran School of Art, Martha Lytton Van Trees now crafts beautiful and unique jewelry of copper and silver. She says of her art, “I make out-of-the-ordinary modern jewelry for the out-of-the-ordinary modern woman or man.” Martha calls her line of jewelry “Urban Jule” defining “jule” as quirky, someone who does things out of the ordinary, a hot girl with bold looks.
Martha sells her handcrafted designs on Etsy and at Northern Virginia markets and craft fairs, including the Lake Anne Saturday Farmers Market near the Global Camps Africa office in Reston. She has committed to donate a percentage of the sale of all earrings to GCA.
“I was invited to the Global Camps Africa fundraising event,” she said, “and was blown away when I heard about the work you’re doing in South Africa. I want to contribute what I can to be part of that.”
