Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Metal/Wood Artist
ZULA is an art jeweller and activator who combines organic casting with precious metals, stones and acrylic. Her pieces and activations are designed to deepen your connection to the Earth, the Cosmos and your truest Self. Her work stems from her reverence of the natural world, she creates relationships with trees and gathers their branches and casts them into precious metals. Her acrylic work in bright florescent colours is described as “Sacred Lisa Frank”, where her love of the cosmos + spirituality is translated into big, edgy and light hearted designs. With the NEON LOVE collection, ZULA performs a special activation ceremony with each customer as the pieces are sold. She graduated with a diploma in Jewellery Art and Design from Vancouver Community College and from the Self Employment Program through Douglas College. She is an avid tool collector and expands her technique repertoire studying with master goldsmiths and gem setters like: Kent Raible, Kirk Lang and Jack Markarian. She has travelled to North Carolina’s Pocosin School of Art to study with Arthur Hash and Elliot Clapp. ZULA’s pieces have been exhibited at Gallery 2052 in Chicago, Studio21 in Halifax, and L.A. Pai Gallery in Ottawa. Zulery (as some of her collectors affectionately call her jewelry), have strutted down New York Fashion Week catwalks, gawked at at New York Jewelry Week, and been published in Ellement and Fashion Magazines. A recipient of several awards from organizations such as Douglas College and Habson’s, ZULA is proud to have been awarded the Vancouver Mayor’s Art Award as an Emerging Artist in Craft and Design. Born in Warsaw, Poland, ZULA currently resides on the unceded Coast Salish Territory known as Vancouver, BC, Canada. Involved in creating a community of metal artists, ZULA is one of the founding members if the Vancouver Metal Arts Association and works out of the Beaumont Studios.

Samples of my work
I am intuitive jeweller building a bridge of reverent connection between humans, Nature and the Cosmos. I am a person who has a deep love of nature and acknowledges the healing power of the natural and cosmic worlds. I create jewelry directly using branches, roots and leaves from nature, the magic of gemstones, benevolent galactic rays; I create jewelry as reminders of our connection to Nature and the Cosmic wisdom that we hold within us. Through my jewelry and my social media and videos, I pass on the messages from the trees with Tree Talk with ZULA, nature whispers and, NEON LOVE activations: bringing you messages of affirmation and empowerment. I want you to adorn yourself intentionally, using jewelry in a ritualistic way to remind you of the qualities you are embodying. And I bring these wisdoms to you, through my art of jewelry. With Nature Reverence + Cosmic Love, Urszula ZULA Jewelry + Design
