The New Vintage Look of Southwest Distinction

Zona Jewelry Artisans on Etsy is our offering of our wire jewelry art collection that includes Natural Turquoise, Cultured Pearl, Druzy, Malachite, Chrysacolla, Larimar, Sodolite, Lapis, Exotic Agates, Exotic Quartz, and Exotic Jaspers to the lovers of truly handmade jewelry. Our original, exotic vintage heirloom designs are all handcrafted in Tucson, Arizona. If you are the type of person that wants others to ask, "Where did you get that?" instead of, "Oh, I have one just like it." you might just have found one of your favorite jewelry artist in us.
We started making handmade, handcrafted artisan jewelry in 2006 as Zonakid's Outpost Jewelry. After tiring of explaining to shoppers at our showings that a Zonakid is a nickname for an old goat from Southern Arizona and not children's jewelry, we decided to transition to our current name a few years ago. We still do several local showings September through May annually.
Mark is documented Handicapped Artist with less than 50% mobility usage in his left hand after a bicycling accident in his youth. With that in mind, has taught himself the very challenging arts of Wire Wrapping and Viking Knit. Lisa is currently finishing studies to become a Registered Gemology and Jewelry Appraiser. She is already a GIA Graduate with a AJP (Accredited Jewelry Professional). We think this is very important to knowing what we are buying and presenting to you.
All of our Gemstones, Pearls, and Designer Glass is personally handpicked by us from a limited list of trusted vendors. Our metal alloys are of only the finest quality and refined in USA. They include 925 Sterling Silver, Argentium 935 Silver, 12k Gold Filled, Non tarnish Solid Copper, Enamel Copper and Enamel Fine Silver Plated Copper. All of our metal alloys are always allergy safe.
