Profile for Zahour
I've been creating jewelry since my first metalsmith course as a freshman in High School almost 20 years ago. Since then I've worked with wax casting, forging, precious stone setting and enameling. My passion is carving (probably from my sculpture and clay background from college!) I consider my pieces little wearable sculptures and am inspired from both nature and the industrial and busy city I live in- NYC.
I've lived, worked and studied art in Pittsburgh, PA; London, England; Leipzig, Germany; Prague, Czech Republic and Oporto, Portugal. As you can see my second passion is travel and culture and each country has left a mark on me and my work.
