Hi, my name is Allie and I am excited about my first Blog. I am the creator and designer of Zee Jewelry (my little company).
I have always been connected one way or another to the Jewelry Business. Years ago a friend took me into a semi precious bead store. It was like visions of sugar plums danced in my head. I had never seen so much sparkle and color. I was hooked. Love at first sight. I had experience making jewelry using antique glass beads.
This is a whole new world of working with semi-precious beads. Here I am. I decided to share with you my new journey and I hope you enjoy it!
Inspirations: My first inspiration came when I was in a bead store. I noticed this strand of beads that was called lemon quartz, the angular shape attracted me so much, and I knew I had to have it! But this lady grabbed this strand and I felt really disappointed… Lo and behold, the lady didn’t buy it but asked the owner to hold it for her. After this lady left spoke to the owner and said I really love this strand of lemon quartz and she ended up selling it to me as the wanna-be buyer wasn’t a dependable buyer as the owner explained to me.
Being the visual person I am I automatically saw the necklace in my mind. So before I left this store I bought keishi pearls and multi-color beads. After I made this necklace I named it Gypsy (photo below) and I felt so excited! I knew my journey was becoming a reality. I decided to create Gypsy with separate clasps so one can wear it with versatility.
