Both of the necklaces that I got (crane and hammerhead) are gorgeous, well made, and fun to wear!

I've had my eye on this whale necklace for a while and I'm so happy I finally ordered it! It's even lovelier in person and it looks fantastic when it catches the light.

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!

(Richmond VA to be exact!)

ZUU studio is a small, woman owned business where materials are chosen for their durability and integrity. You can be sure that you're getting a product that has been thoroughly and thoughtfully designed.
