ZULA is an art jeweller and activator who combines organic casting with precious metals, stones and acrylic. Her pieces and activations are designed to deepen your connection to the Earth, the Cosmos and your truest Self.
Her work stems from her reverence of the natural world, she creates relationships with cedar, birch and willow trees, gathers their branches and casts them into precious metals. Her acrylic work in bright florescent colours is described as “Sacred Lisa Frank”, where her love of the cosmos + spirituality is translated into big, edgy and light hearted designs.
A recipient of several awards from organizations such as Douglas College and Habson’s, ZULA is proud to have been awarded the Vancouver Mayor’s Art Award as an Emerging Artist in Craft and Design. She graduated with a diploma in Jewellery Art and Design from Vancouver Community College.
Involved in creating a community of metal artists, ZULA is one of the founding members if the Vancouver Metal Arts Association and works out of the Beaumont Studios, on the unceded Coast Salish Territory known as Vancouver, BC, Canada.
ZULA’s pieces have been exhibited at Gallery 2052 in Chicago, Studio21 in Halifax, and L.A. Pai Gallery in Ottawa. Zulery (as some of her collectors affectionately call her jewelry) has strutted down New York Fashion Week catwalks and been published in Ellement and Fashion Magazines. You can shop ZULA at various retailers including at Made You Look in Toronto, Artina’s in Vancouver, and online at zulajewelry.com
ZULA is available to work with you on custom commissions in gold and gemstones, for commitment and wedding jewelry, memorial, or personal celebrations.
