Welcome to Zeva Designs
Unique creations - for women who run with the wolves!
Zeva ( Hebrew meaning wolf) Designs has evolved over many years and has emerged through a series of life experiences which has lead me to reconnect with myself. Establishing a range of artworks provides me with opportunity to express myself in a unique way.
So whats with the wolf?
Well, I have always had interest in wolves, and was fortunate enough to spend 13 years of my life with Zeva, the silver grey husky, first cousin to the white wolf.
As life has progressed through the years, and managing to throw numerous curve balls my way, the need to express and be true to myself became stronger and stronger.
I read Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype, "Women who run with the wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola Este's, and it was from there concept of Zeva Designs and Women who run with wolves has emerged!
Basically, this is my work, this is who I am and what I want to do with my life and have now freed up my time to give my designs the priority.
Majority of my work is focused on "getting back to basics".
Jewellery designs are constructed from recycled components that include copper, aluminium, electric and computer cables, leather, vintage cottons and fabrics.
Recycled bags are formed from disgarded plastic bags, old fabrics and linen.
Retro inspired aprons utilise vintage patterns, fabrics and trims.
NhillBillies Gourmet Treats are produced from an extensive home kitchen garden which keeps me busy from season to season.
My greeting cards are remnants from my childhood picture books - bought into 2011 with my own slightly off kilter sense of humour.
It is my hope that others will be encouraged and inspired to live their lives passionately and lively, and be who they really want to be. Maybe they may think about future purchases in this crazy consumeristic world, perhaps reducing what gets sent to landfill. And hey, if you like my designs - then that's even better still!
