Meet ZiZi Designs, featured Artist at Gallery 141

ZiZi Designs Jewelry began in early 2006 as a fun hobby among friends, and evolved into a fund raising endeavor to raise support for a friend serving as a missionary in the Middle East. Each piece of ZiZi jewelry is unique, handcrafted, beautiful, and fun ---and 100% of the proceeds raised are donated to missions around the world.

ZiZi Designs' vision began as a tiny seed planted many years ago in Kirsten, who spent 6 years polishing & cutting stones in a lapidary shop. Kirsten brings her talent, knowledge, and amazing artistry to ZiZi Designs. Kirsten has served as a missionary in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, and combines her international experience and heart in each piece she creates.

Heidi joined ZiZi Designs as an understudy of sorts and has developed her own style of jewelry making. Heidi continues to join Kirsten in making jewelry to support an old friend who now serves with Eastern Mennonite Missions. She has a knack for fun & vibrant designs and a soft spirit which nourishes her elegant creations as well.
