CUSTOM ITEMS:

I love creating custom items just for you -- if there is anything you see in my shop that you'd like a different metal or material, please just ask. I can do almost any piece in nearly any metal or stone available. I work with all forms of solid gold, sterling silver, and base metals like copper, bronze, steel, titanium, brass, and more.

I gladly do bridesmaids jewelry sets and wedding jewelry -- please be sure to give me enough time to complete your request, though! I can even package your bridesmaids gifts so that all you have to do is hand them out. Make sure you know what sizes you'll need if you're ordering rings or bracelets. (Chainmaille earrings & pendants make lovely gifts, too, and no sizes are needed!)

- Convo me for more information & current turnaround times (the more requests I have, the longer they will take).

- Most custom items that don't require any special order materials ship within 1-2 weeks, unless I'm swamped or don't have enough materials on hand to complete the order. I will always let you know quickly if this is the case.

- Items that require special order materials (gemstones, metals, wire that I don't stock normally) will ship within 2-3 weeks, usually, unless other circumstances apply.

- Please convo me for a more exact turnaround time for wedding sets -- if you're running low on time & need your items fast, let me know. I can expedite orders on request.

About

It was just a hobby ...

ZS is short for "zerospace", the online handle I've used for years, and while many of my friends call me "Z", my first name is Amanda. I started out learning how to make necklaces with tiny glass seed beads when I was a little girl. I moved on to other kinds of beads and other types of jewelry-making, and often just enjoyed sifting through supply catalogs, dreaming of what I could make with each item.

But, for as much as I loved jewelry & creating things, I also loved math, science, and computers -- and so by the time I reached high school, jewelry was mostly a forgotten hobby. All through high school and college, computers were my hobby -- I'm also a web developer and designer today, and often work on both jewelry design projects and web projects simultaneously.

After a long stint of neglecting my love for jewelry, instead focusing on applying my creativity to computer designs (e.g. I would "modify" a computer case much like some people work on cars or motorcycles), I finally got back to making jewelry in late 2006, but this time, I had a new focus. Beads took a back seat or perhaps a co-starring role alongside my new found love: chainmaille. A short while later, I took a class on fusing glass and began adding that to the mix. And after lots of prodding from friends and family, I went from being registered here on Etsy (since 2008) to finally opening my shop sometime in 2010.

I now work in many mediums -- metal clay, polymer clay (any kind of clay, really -- I also throw pottery), chainmaille, beading, traditional pearl knotting, glass fusing, metalworking, etc. My desk is a myriad of supplies and tools, that I'm constantly re-organizing to make space for new tools. In a nutshell: I love creating wearable or useable art!

Welcome to ZS Art Jewelry!

My work is a mixture of old and new--I love to combine traditional styles like knotted pearls and chainmaille with more contemporary fused glass pieces. While most of my work is wearable, some of it is functional too!

Some of my items are one-of-a-kind -- meaning, I will never make it again. Each of these pieces is serial-numbered and comes with a certificate containing that number. This way, if you ever need your piece repaired, I will know exactly what materials I used originally.

I also keep a blog about some of my more unique creations on blogspot: http://zsartjewelry.blogspot.com
