I'm Zoraida and I design and create handmade, one of a kind jewelry. My work is inspired by the art of ancient world cultures that have endured the shifting trends of fashion. I prefer to work in copper and semi precious gemstones but also appreciate fine lamp work beads, wood and other artistically crafted materials.

I'm just starting out; leave me a comment or a like :)
I got up in this morning with an overwhelming need to create something. I rumage through my stash of beads, wire and leftover projects till the tiny spark of an idea lights up. Sketching furiously and laying out pieces of my stash, I rearrange them continuously until – I’ve got it. I know what I’m going to make!
Hours go by without my noticing them. My stomach growls, I forgot to eat. I tell myself I’ll eat as soon as I finish this one part. I complete another section, then another. Can’t seem to stop at this point, I’m almost done!
Another hour goes by. I’m beginning to slow down or perhaps I’m running out of energy. I must at least go to the bathroom. Relunctantly, I go to the bathroom taking my work in progress with me to stare at and visualize the final product. I get back to work quickly, fixing and changing little things it here and there.
Finally, it’s finished! Now I have to photograph it, edit it, list it and post it.
I think I’ll eat something, and I should do some laundry, clean the house and feed the pets. I realized that I didn’t have a single thought about anything else all day. Do I have a problem?
