Maureen Brusa Zappellini's Profile

About

Hi- Welcome to my original line of sterling silver and mixed metals jewelry! My name is Maureen Brusa Zappellini, I am the metalsmith and designer behind Cosmo's Moon jewelry. Cosmo's Moon is my original and eclectic line of handmade jewelry that I design and create in my sunny metalsmithing studio, surrounded by my gardens in Tucson AZ. Cosmo's Moon designs are inspired by a love of nature and architecture, pattern and creativity.

Cosmo's Moon jewelry design reflects my Southwestern and Italian influences and inspirations.

Originally from the Northeast (New Hampshire and Boston),I currently live in Tucson AZ. (Located in in the Sonoran desert of southern Arizona) The Italian influences are from my husband, who grew up in Florence Italy, where we visit on a regular basis (Understand the Moonstruck connection now?:-) ) As art cities, both environments have…

Cosmo's Moon jewelry design reflects my Southwestern and Italian influences and inspirations.

Originally from the Northeast (New Hampshire and Boston),I currently live in Tucson AZ. (Located in in the Sonoran desert of southern Arizona) The Italian influences are from my husband, who grew up in Florence Italy, where we visit on a regular basis (Understand the Moonstruck connection now?:-) ) As art cities, both environments have informed my design sensibility and technical skills.

Cosmo's Moon's inventory consists of ALL original and handmade designs (nothing assembled from commercial craft store findings).

I think one of the hardest things to convey when selling my work online is the quality of the craftsmanship and substantial feel of each piece. I don't skimp on materials or craftsmanship. My work has a substantial feel; I make pieces that will stand the tests of time- weighty yet comfortable and impeccably hand crafted.

My mission is to prove that "they" really DO make things the way "they" used to! After almost 30 years of professional metalsmithing I remain to this day passionate about working in metals. I love making artistic jewelry that is edgy, unique, well designed and crafted that is also comfortably wearable.

I hope you find something in my shop that suits your fancy, or fancies your suit!
