About

Zeal is passion.

Zara is actually the first to letters of my last name and the last two letters of my first name. Zeal is passion. Flexibility to work with what inspires me and share the end result is what this store is about. I am happiest working with my hands to create something new and beautiful. I knit (find me on ravelry), bead, sew, collage, draw and whatever else I can get my hands on.

I work out of my home in an area I have carved out for making. I found a black media stand on wheels that serves perfectly for tools, supplies and a few carefully selected reference books. A bread box with an extra compartment serves as the perfect home for my bead stash. I read, watch youtube videos and explore other sources for new techniques and methods to improve my abilities. Sometimes silence while working brings on a storm of ideas, other times I enjoy listening to a good audiobook. Other times it's a happy mix of creativity with my two little boys. Balancing family life with my creative life can be challenging. I'm grateful for love, support and patience my family gives while I pursue my creative endeavors, especially the latter ;) I can't wait to see how Zara's Zeal will evolve.

Please ask questions and let me know how I'm doing. I love custom orders, so if you have an idea of what you what or what you would like to see more of, don't be shy :)

Digital patterns are non-refundable once downloaded. If you have problems downloading your file, please message me right away and I will email you a copy.

Damaged Goods including 'Final Sale' items
I do my best to prevent goods from arriving damaged. For example, jewelry ships in a water resistant bubble mailer packed in a zip-locked bag. In the event that an item does arrive damaged, please contact me to let me know you are shipping the item(s) back due to damage with details how the item was damaged. I will either fix it if damage is fixable, ship a replacement or issue a refund for purchased price once the item is returned. I will pay to ship the fixed or replacement item(s) to you. This includes final sale items.
Additional policies and FAQs
Colors
Pictures were taken under natural light. I tried my best to get the colors as close to real life as possible.

Crafting Time
"Made to Order" items or "Custom Orders" are first priority in crafting and will be made in purchased order unless an item is being rushed. Rushed items may have additional fees.

Knitted (including Crochet) Patterns
Please let me know if you have any problems with the directions in my knitted/crochet patterns. I will try to clarify any directions or fix any issues you may have with your copy. My blog has tips and links to favorite youtube videos, books, magazines and websites. There is also a link to find me on Ravelry.

Bead Patterns
Patterns (including ones based off of my photos) are my own designs unless a different artist is credited. You may handcraft items from my patterns to sell or give as gifts if you have purchased the original pattern and you are making each item yourself (no mass producing). Copying and distributing my patterns for non-personal use is prohibited (for example, you can't print a copy of my pattern for a friend to make and sell an item; they must buy my pattern).

Using a pattern in live classes/workshops for teaching purposes is an allowed and is the only exception. Please make sure students are aware the pattern is for class use only. Purchasing a copy will giving them the same licence to sell handcrafted products from my pattern. Please contact me if you wish to sell my patterns in your store.

Custom Beading Patterns
I would be happy to turn your own photos or art into a beading pattern. Please make sure if you have not taken the photo that you have permission to do so before submitting a custom order request.

I would love to see photos of items you have made based on my patterns or using things I have made. Either email me or post them on Zara's Zeal facebook page.
