Designer one of a kind limited edition colorful jewelry

New York, United States 5 Sales On Etsy since 2012

Announcement   "One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art" - Oscar Wilde. I say, one should be both.

Here you will find creations that are meant to last, not seasonal items to be worn and discarded. Fine jewelry worthy of an elegant gift, or a self indulgent timeless splurge... I may however get cheeky and latch on to some trends with the aim of creating a classic lasting version!

My collection is created from quality gemstones and materials, with an eye for color & shape. Pieces are uniquely designed and are either one of a kind (OOAK) or a limited edition. All are handmade by me with great attention to detail. Some are made to order so kindly allow 2-5 business days for crafting.

Tools of the art include semi precious gem stones, crystals, glass beads & sterling silver/ gold filled findings of the highest quality. Very rarely do I use imitation materials. Even those I scrutinize for excellent quality.

As I am an artist at everything, items will arrive in customized individual packaging. No invoice will be included in the package.

Sasha and Zamani are two aspects of time as expressed in some Eastern and Central African cultures. Sasha are spirits known by someone still alive, while Zamani are spirits not known by anyone currently alive. Sasha are concerned with, and are expressed as, the present time, the recent past, and the near future; while Zamani is the limitless past. Potential time is the third part of the space-time continuum in African Thought. People must learn from the past to act wisely in the present to create a good future.

My shop, Zamaani, borrows from these mythologies. I love the concept of continuum between past, present and the future. This is why you will find references to the past as well as projections to the future in my designs. And very often, I feel a spirit of a persona breathing through some of my pieces - somehow alluding to them... Like my Audrey-persona earrings "Breakfast at Tiffany's"

:: Natural gems & their care

almost all of the gems used are natural stones hence, they may vary in shape, size and color.

Some gemstones do not stand the force of cleaning agents, polishing cloths or ultrasonic cleaners. Make sure any cleaners you use are safe for use on delicate semi-precious gemstones.

:: What is 14k Gold Fill?

also known as "rolled gold" or "rolled gold plate", gold fill is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal. Hence 14K gold filled jewelry is made with a thick layer of solid 14k gold that contains 100 times more real gold than jewelry that is plated - which is just a thin film that is dispensed by chemical or electrochemical plating and which wears off quickly.

Gold fill is extremely durable and highly tarnish resistant. Its a beautiful and affordable alternative to solid gold, and is perfect for those with sensitive skin.

:: How do I care for my new jewelry?

All metals will tarnish and dull over time. To slow tarnishing avoid wearing your jewelry in swimming pools, showers, or hot tubs. Hairspray, perfume cleaning products, body oils will speed tarnishing. Store your sterling jewelry in an airtight Ziploc bag or jewelers anti-tarnish pouch to slow the tarnishing process. I would recommend using a Sunshine Polish Cloth to restore your sterling and 14k gold filled chain to a brilliant shine.
