Zoa Art consists of the combined artistic efforts of husband and wife team Tony & Lisa Blackwell. Tony does glasswork and casting, while Lisa works with PMC, silver designs and completed jewelry. Lisa also teaches classes about her work. Newer work includes forays into Shibuichi, and thoughts of other metals are blooming.
Textile Style: Celebrate spring in the boldest, most dramatic way–with a blue butterfly on your wrist! This cuff features a large pool blue linen butterfly decorated with a vintage luster glazed button and backed with a blue and silver print. The butterfly is mounted on a gorgeous platinum silk band that’s hand-embroidered with vines and tiny blue buds. The cuff is lined with plum linen and closes with a shimmery shell button.
My name is Arosha Luigi Taglia. I was born in Torino,Italy, where I have lived and worked most of my life. I moved to Israel two years ago, following my heart and my love to an Israeli woman, and this is where I live and create my jewelry currently.
I’m a visual and eclectic artist. I’ve worked in all the communication fields – from pure art to design, from television to advertising. If you are curious please give a look at my career and works on my personal website.
My work ranges from visual arts (sculpturing, painting, digital art) to jewelry design. I like to experiment with every material possible – plastic, silver, gold, metals, textiles, vintage pieces etc..
My work is presented in art, design, fashion and jewelry galleries all over the world.
My passion for design and especially for jewels comes from sculpturing. My jewelry is characterized by their clean and elegant shapes, and by their unique, modern and individual statement.
Raw sterling silver cries out to me, begs me to convert it into bold jewelry with subtle finishes. Of course, I must obey.
Sarah Mann: Sarah Mann is fascinated by the creative and technical challenges of transforming her medium into objects of provocative adornment. Geometric shapes flow into organic elements, producing clean, straightforward designs that often incorporate kinetics. She is proud to carry on a family tradition in the crafts and pleased that this enables her to exercise her talent wherever her peripatetic nature may have her living.
Mann realizes fully the broad potential of sterling silver. She crafts her jewelry with torch and tools–saws, files, pliers, nippers, drills, hammers, and the more arcane rolling mill, dapping blocks, and mizzy wheels–then endows it with a range of hues through delicately controlled oxidation. The combined effect of patina on texture is a signature characteristic of all Sarah Mann jewelry.
Stormy Sky: My name is Bindi, and I am the worker bee at Stormy Sky. I live with my husband and cat in a quintessential rural village in Somerset, England. I have been making jewelry for a few years and especially love natural gemstones, vintage glass and silver.
