Jewelry inspired by spirit animals, tattoos, and world travel. Made in RVA / Found all over.
I started my shop with the idea that I NEEDED a humpback whale tattoo. I needed to channel that calm wise vibe those guys give off. I couldn't bring myself to actually get a tattoo so I used my metalsmithin' skills, made a whale drawing out of metal and strung it around my neck. This worked out quite nicely! I could put in on whenever I needed a little reminder to be calm and wise AND it would not freak out my grandma. (Added bonus: no needles or Hep C!) Thus, the idea for ZUU Studio was born. I made illustrations of my favorite animals from all over the world, digitized them, and with the help of a metal fabricator, started my production line. Now, our tattoo inspired necklaces can be found on people from (almost) every continent! Damn you, Antarctica!
