    • ABOUT

      Zoe’s aim is to create pieces that remind you of your adventures, your memories, and your special people and allows them to travel onwards with you as well as protecting you along the way.

      Zoe has always travelled a-lot in her lifetime. It has been these travels and the people she met along the way which has inspired the ethos behind the ZM brand. She wanted a way to always have a connection to these people even if she lived miles away. By wearing a piece of ZM Jewellery Zoe hopes to ignite a sense of adventure and allow people to be connected from one side of the world to the other.

      In-between travels Zoe studied Graphic Design and worked in the photography industry by day, and by night she made jewellery. This lead her to do a 3 month course in Florence Italy to understand the production and design of Jewellery. From here she set up ZM in 2014.

    • THE PROCESS

      Being a sustainably conscious brand is really important to Zoe. 

      The process for each piece can be different depending on what it is. However most of our collections are cast from recycled metals. The original is usually made in wax and then it gets cast into the metal.

      The wax is carved, cut, bent has other materials added to it sometimes even melted. Her process involves alot of experimentation with different materials.

      Some of the collections also involve riveting and inlaying materials into the pieces.

      For Zoe, often, the most exciting part is figuring out if her ideas will actually work, and if it does how she will create it.

       

    • SUSTAINABILITY

      Sustainability has always played a key role on what I am trying to create and how I do things. With every decision I consider the environmental impact on people and places and how I can do better.

      From the very beginning I have always looked for the most sustainable way to create the product, I have jumped so many hurdles and I am proud of that. Being sustainable is not the easiest route.

      From the production of the product itself to the packaging and all the other hurdles that crop up, I am conscious of all decisions. As a business we are for sure not perfect, but we are trying our best.

      As the business grows I hope to do better and I hope you guys continue to support the journey.

      Production

      The product is produced right here in London where I can follow and keep an eye on the process. All the pieces are cast out of recycled metals and when possible I source the chains and other parts from recycled metals, however this is not always possible - I’m working on this.

      If I have any objects set in the pieces, I love to use found objects / offcuts which are otherwise seen as waste. There is something special about creating something beautiful from offcuts and up cycling materials.

      The gemstones are sourced and cut from sustainable mines in Sri Lanka. In 2019 I visited the stone cutting studio in Sri Lanka but unfortunately after heavy rain the mines where filled with water so we couldn’t visit them. We met Sanjeewa who you can see below - he is the main cutter and works alongside Chnandrasiri. With these stones I can tell you the mine they have come from and the person who as cut them (it will most likely be Sanjeewa!).

      Packaging

      The Packaging is made from recycled materials in Cornwall, England. I spend a lot of time in Cornwall and I have visited the Factory. Its great to have the option of producing sustainable packing right here in the UK.

      Charities

      ZM Jewellery supports two incredible charities, both close to my heart.

      One being Bloodwise which supports research for Leukaemia and Lymphoma. A percentage of our Black Friday sales went to this Charity.

      The other is The Wave Project UK which takes landlocked kids and introduces them to the sea. I love being in the sea/ocean. It brings a sense of freedom and has inspired me all my life. As well as giving to this charity I am also helping to set up the Wave Project London - watch this space!
