About

Vintage Glam Jewelry

I took up jewelry-making as a hobby while making other plans, but soon found myself obsessed. Zhivana Designs was launched in 2007.

I love vintage rhinestones and lucite, and now have a huge collection that I turn into Zhivana Designs Vintage Glam jewelry.

After taking a few metalsmithing courses in San Francisco and Montreal, I set up a workshop in a spare bedroom. I work mainly at an old oak desk that was upcycled into a jeweler's workbench, and have spent many happy hours shaping, hammering and soldering jewelry-to-be on its surface.

After all these years, I still get excited whenever I sell a piece of jewelry. Thank you to all of my wonderful customers!

Additional policies and FAQs
None of the jewelry sold in this shop is intended to be used by children.

Please note that photos have been taken on macro settings for detail, and items may appear larger than they actually are. Detailed measurements are provided for each item.

I do my best to ensure that colors are represented accurately, but please note that different computer screens show colors differently, and there may be some variation from what you see on your screen.

ABOUT 14K GOLD FILL:
Gold fill is made up of a solid layer of karat gold bonded to metal with heat and pressure. Between 50 and 100,000 times thicker than gold plating, it is very durable and tarnish resistant.

ABOUT VINTAGE JEWELS:
Each jewel used in Zhivana Designs jewelry is individually examined using a magnifying jeweller’s visor. Those chosen may have tiny imperfections - small enough to add to the vintage charm of each piece of jewelry without detracting from its beauty. Most jewels used in Zhivana Designs jewelry are vintage, with a few dating from the 1990s (as indicated in each item’s description).

ABOUT OXIDIZED STERLING SILVER:
All sterling silver will naturally tarnish and darken over time. The surface of oxidized sterling silver is silver that has been intentionally darkened to give it a rich charcoal grey - almost black - color. The silver is still shiny underneath, and over time the oxidization will rub off with wear for a naturally time-worn look.

All items are made in a smoke-free, pet-free, music-filled environment.

Zhivana Vintage Glam is a brand of Zhivana Designs Inc.

What is gold fill?

Gold fill is made up of a solid layer (5% total weight) of karat gold bonded to a base metal core with heat and pressure. Far more durable than plated gold, gold fill is a wonderful, economical alternative to solid 14k gold.

What is oxidized sterling silver?

All sterling silver will naturally tarnish and darken over time. The surface of oxidized sterling silver is silver that has been intentionally darkened to give it a rich charcoal grey - almost black - color. The silver is still shiny underneath, and over time the oxidization will rub off with wear for a naturally time-worn look.
