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.

Designed something new this week and I'm kinda in love! 14k gold fill hand hammered fringe, with an accent of beautiful grey steel. They were a bit of an experiment, as I'm playing around with soldering steel and have yet to have it totally figured out. I brazed these with a brass solder, and I love the ombre it created at the top. Thinking I'll make a couple pairs for my upcoming shows and see how they do! Took me forever to make and with the material cost, they will likely be priced around $150, so plan ahead if you want these, and put them on your holiday wish list!

Love this bebe ❀️ she has come such a long ways since we rescued her 5 months ago. When we brought her home she was so shy, scared of everything, and super attached to me. Although I'm still her favorite person, she's become more independent, confident on walks, learns things so quick, gets excited about new dogs and people, and is full of spunk and personality. It's so crazy what a difference being in a stable home makes for a dog. I always new we'd go to a shelter when we decided to get a dog, but I never anticipated walking out with a non-puppy that had been traumatized and had some issues. Let me tell y'all, it's totally worth it and makes all the milestones sweeter! She's the sweetest little ham and I'm so glad we brought her into our lives. 🐺 #adoptdontshop #rescuepup #minpinmix #papillonmix

✨Made something new this week ✨ This circle necklace will be available as a limited edition design (I'll make it to order a long as supplies last). Made with steel wire, gold fill chain, and recycled gold(brass?) French wire. Isn't she beautiful?! That delicate, coiled "French wire" is made for finishing the ends of pearl knotted necklaces. I love it's glimmer against the dark, matte, steel. I'll have a few of these at my upcoming shows at #helenaholidaymadefair and #missoulaholidaymadefair
