About

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

I'm inspired to push the boundaries of nontraditional materials and I love the element of surprise! I make jewelry out of anything and everything that is awesome, from modified eyeglasses to--yes!--Genuine Bacon! :D

I've recently fallen in love with old antique relics and items that were once personal to someone passed: maybe a soldier's pen from the early 1900's or a funky silver ladle from the 1800's. I enjoy turning these little treasures into one of a kind pieces of jewelry.

I studied sculpture installation art at UC Santa Barbara and started making jewelry as a creative outlet when I graduated, filling my tiny apartment on the beach with creations and testing the patience of my three roommates. Forced to sell them to make room, my business was born! Everything I make is like a mini wearable piece of art to me, and I like art that makes me laugh or smile. I value handmade, done well. I don't mail anything out unless it is perfect.

Customer satisfaction is of the UTMOST IMPORTANCE to me. If you are not beside yourself with joy when you receive your order, I will address any of your concerns, STAT!

Since 2002, Zanne Avenue's unique designs have sold internationally and have been featured in national Life and Style magazines.
