Maker's statement

We started ZIZA to make fashion jewellery and accessories in order to sponsor our own work as precious jewellers. We were not willing to compromise our own work by producing cheap gold/silver jewellery. We realised that there was an opportunity to make interesting quality work for the top end of the fashion market. This gave us a chance towork with fashion designers which was something we had both always wanted to do. This piece was part of a range made for summer and Greene's spring/summer collection 1978 shown at 'Inn on the Park' during British Fashion Week 1977.
