Welcome to  Studio 1zero6.

It has been over a year now since I retired and closed the cafe. I am keeping the page up and have renamed it. Creativity is born in my studio, and this page will be about creativity. Be it food, art, personal adornment or photography, it is what I do.
 It is what I have always done in my life. 
Gotta stay creative.

Starting the page will be what I have been up to ... creating jewelry.
If you knew the cafe, you know I liked presenting visual stimulation and mood, without being slick and shiny.
I have always enjoyed cultures that find ways to enhance their appearance with body adornment and decided to create a collection of necklaces that span the world with items from the past, gem stones, hand-made beads, repurposed bits and pieces of vintage jewelry. In the process I have made many new friends across the world who have shared sources and cultures.
I do not do duplicate work, each piece is unique and personal.

After purchase, if needed, some pieces can be altered for "fit".
Small fee will be charged.

~ Coral ~
I am using coral from the Red Sea (Bamboo), Pacific Ocean and Sponge coral from Sardinia and Australia. One of the oldest gemstones, it is treasured in Italy, Nepal, American SW and the Ukraine. Offered below is coral alone and mixed with other gemstones and beads.
~ Lava ~
Lava beads from Hawaii and Indonesia
~ Silver ~
I am using multiple silvers in the jewelry. Sterling, coin and glit from Afghanistan.
~ Brass ~
Brass beads and charms are from Afghanistan and India.
~ Turquoise ~
The majority of turquoise used is from Sonora, Mexico, along with Tibet and Nevada.
~ Copal ~
Tree resin beads from Africa, both natural and mixed with artificial resin. Most people know copal as an incense, especially in Mexico for Dia de Los Muertos.

All findings are nickle free.

Working on a new collection ... stay tuned.

I am not doing any "Pop-Ups" in the near future. 
I am doing Private Chef gigs instead, it is better with small private groups, more personal.

Just a heads-up ... I am  on FaceBook again ...

Old account was cloned, so I had to shut 'em down.
