Dr. Eugenia Zazowska is a self-taught jewelry artist working from her studio in Manhattan. Always interested in arts and crafts (B.A. in art history), she succumbed to her love of the jeweler's craft in 2002, after a career as an academic (Ph.D. in linguistics; the Jagiellonian University, Krakow) and art and rare books librarian (Columbia University, the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York).
Today, she designs and fabricates unique and limited edition pieces. Her designs are inspired by the shape, color, and texture of natural stones and guided by a deep appreciation of beauty drawn from a long study of art history. Starting with the qualities of the precious and semi-precious stones themselves, she strives to highlight that natural beauty with hand-fabricated gold and silver settings, created by a combination of ancient wire techniques and the transposition to precious metal of the methods of textiles, such as knitting, crocheting, and weaving.
Dr. Zazowska is a juried member of the International Guild of Wire Jewelry Artists. Her work can be found in a number of galleries and boutiques in New York and New England. She has participated in several group exhibitions, including the 2005 Holiday Fine Crafts Exhibit at the Pen & Brush Club in New York, and "All Things Woven" a the Woman Made Gallery in Chicago.
