About

Tiffany Zal-Herwitz, the artist behind Zalias Jewelry, lives in Southern Oregon where the gnarled oak trees reign, moss multiplies exponentially, and rivers drift through green rolling landscapes. She spends her days snuggling her cats, thrifting for weathered treasure, and working in her studio. Her work is inspired by grit, organic shapes, the imperfections in things, and the excitement found in raw, unfiltered details. She gives a spotlight to these beloved qualities by using unrefined, weathered materials, such as oxidized steel and old c-clip washers, and transforms them into ornate, sophisticated jewelry that becomes the perfect contradiction of bold and delicate. In Tiffany’s work, the unusual is the star of the show, and the standard of what is considered beautiful is always being challenged.

The use of eucalyptus in my display was genius on two levels: 1. It made my set up look great and 2. I now have a jar of dried eucalyptus leaves to add to all my baths for the next month πŸ‘Œ πŸ›€πŸ§–πŸŒΏ

If any Missoula folks know of anyone looking to share a studio space, or is privy to any leads on a small rental space, please let me know πŸ™ going outside to solder in 18 degree weather, and trying to work from a tiny space in my kitchen just isn't cutting it anymore, so I'm making it a priority to find a work space more suitable to my needs in 2019! Must be ok with hammering πŸ”¨ and soldering πŸ‘©β€πŸ­ @eicjewelry @upcycledshop @wander_and_rain

I am back in Missoula, getting organized after a great first trade show experience. perhaps not by others standards, but certainly by my own. I'm excited for the new relationships built, and to have a busy month ahead of me. if anyone out there is interested in dipping their toe into wholesale show waters, I really recommend @indiemarketbayarea . It's great for first timers because it's calm, affordable, and a good mix of newbies and seasoned pros. It's a relatively new show, run by people who are also vendors, and get what we need and how to support us. They supplied free coffee and breakfast every morning, had lunch and drinks for purchase on site, and hired manual labor to aid in loading out. Ridiculously kind and thoughtful! πŸ™

Why steel? I love this dark, strong, moody metal. It balances out the delicacy and lightness of my work, by adding something tough, resilient, and bold. it keeps that oxidized dark color better than Sterling, and is also nickel free, making it a great choice for people with sensitivities. I've always liked working with materials that I can transform, and add value to through my hands and my eyes. I love that working with steel sets my work apart, and that the people responding to it are unafraid of breaking tradition. I have so much I'm still learning about this metal, but I'm glad to be partners with it, and be able to make it my own.

This ooak gold fill and steel fringe necklace is pretty dainty and little, but here's an awesome up close picture, so you can see the detail. Each piece of wire is hammered and filed and arranged just so, resulting in this stunning, delicate mixed metal necklace. this is still available, ready to ship in my Etsy shop.
