Zoë is a formally trained Fashion and Interior Designer who fell into Jewelry design quite naturally as an extension of the all encompassing world of Design.
She believes that jewelry is living, breathing art and finds the majority of her design influences & muses coming directly from nature. Some of her humankind muses are Carmen De Lavallade, Geoffrey Holder, Iris Apfel & Debbie Mazar all of which she believes exude a certain daring, class and ageless style.
Zoë teaches Jewelry Making & Sewing Classes from time-to-time, but concentrates most of her efforts on creating one-of-a-kind pieces in which she always infuses a piece of her spirit. She wants each and every owner of her pieces of art/her jewels to connect with them in some way and create their own story with it. “It is not solely about the piece, but the story that’s connected with it…”
