zazoma's Shop Announcement

For as long as I can remember,I have had a crow-like passion for shiny, beautiful objects. This passion became an obsession when, fresh out of the Philadelphia College of Art, a friend and I started making jewelry from wonderful vintage beads and findings. My friend had purchased this collection from an aquaintance who had inherited it and who had no interest in doing anything with it other than selling it. I ended up purchasing the whole lot from my friend eventually in the 1980s , as her career took over and there was no time for beads anymore...I however became even more obsessed with them and started (and still am to this day) adding very cool and unusual vintage beads and findings to what i already had. Occasionally a few unusual newer beads and findings would make their way into my collection, as well as the beautiful but costly habit of the Bali style sterling silver components!
So if you are a creative person that likes to have unusual product on hand, you will find that I have listed (and will continue to do so as time allows) many unique vintage beads & findings from my collection and have temporarily dropped my jewelry line for the moment, as time is rare and creating takes lots of it!
If you would like more of something you see or like a style within a grouping, please let me know and I can check inventory to see what I have available. There is alot of interesting and unusual inventory in my collection, so please feel free to convo me with any questions or requests.
