Where the Hell Did You Go?

I didn’t pass on, I promise! I’ve been busy in my studio concocting and doing my evil laugh.  Oh and developing new business partnerships!  More to come on that later.  Check out these quirky Vintage bouquets I whipped up!  ImageImageImageImage

Why oh why?

Why Should I come to a Pierced Zebra Party?

Each piece is one-of-a-kind…literally! This is not mass produced jewelry.

 If you like a piece, you walk away with it THAT night, no waiting, order forms or hassles.

 There are absolutely no sales pitches!   Just come hang out with good friends and browse through humorous designs while sipping tea or coffee or something sassier.

 The designs are quirky and created with upcycled objects, vintage jewelry and steel hardware.

 Pierced Zebra Jewelry is brazenly whimsical, sometimes edgy and often hilarious!

 The greeting cards are designed using vintage advertisements and funky paper products.

 Where else will you find a tea cup ring, earrings made with nuts and bolts or flip flops with blingy spiders?

 The best part?  Pierced Zebra Jewelry and Quirky Gifts is partnered with Called to Rescue, a local organization that combats human trafficking.  A percentage of party sales go toward free jewelry classes for young girls rescued from sex trafficking…and provides job opportunities for the older ones.  It’s quirky jewelry with a humanitarian edge!

Here  are some pictures from our sassy open house!  Some were taken in our studio space, others were snapped in the conference room down the hall.  It was a success, better than expected.  Fans of Pierced Zebra rock!!!

I'm such a dork!

the mini-boutique section of the studio...thankfully it blocks the view of my incredibly messy creative space!

Mission Statement

Wondering what we’re doing at Pierced Zebra Jewelry and Quirky Gifts??  Here’s our 2012 Mission Statement!

We believe in creating quirky jewelry and gifts from vintage finds, discarded hardware and other sassy products that inspire us. We heart upcycling, recycling and transforming “junk” into bits of magic! We obsess over creating something lovely out of something ignored and disliked. We believe… these unique products will put food on the tables of women in need, hope into the souls of girls imprisoned in human trafficking, and help provide income for moms who need to stay at home with their little ones. We believe that Pierced Zebra Jewelry and Quirky Gifts will encourage the hearts and minds of women stuck in their lonely places, because we know that everything is made beautiful in its time…even nuts, bolts, washers and a secretly creative woman!

Flip Flops in December!

Come check out my new flip flops with spiders, nuts and bolts at the Club Sport Trunk Show in Tualatin. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2-3, 9am to noon.  You can see pictures on facebook.com/piercedzebra.   

On a sassy note: We are welcoming our second Party Coordinator to the “Dazzle”. Her name is Tanya and she’s going to rock in Vancouver, WA! 

Wondering what Dazzle means? It turns out that a group of zebras is sometimes called a Dazzle! How freaking appropriate and awesome is that??

Happy Shopping!

 

Eeek

After a mere 16 months of business I have hired my first employee.  Yikes!!  It’s good and bad.  Good–because this means business is decent. Bad-because, gulp, can I do this?  I have no idea! Only time will tell.  But, enough of my insecurities. Welcome to the team, Krystal, Pierced Zebra’s new Event Representative. Sooooo very happy to have you.  Don’t let the Kraziness kill ya!
