When a parcel arrived recently my daughter got very excited as the sender was named Versaci-I think she misread it as Versace and thought Mum had splashed out on couture. Of course it was something so much more interesting. Somewhat obsessed with vintage zippers AmaliaVersaci uses them as a base material for her jewelry. I bought two zipper chains- one for a present, one for myself and love it. The perfect weight and colors it is one of those pieces where only after closer examination you realize the chain links are in fact zip sliders. She also fashions these into earrings in a very successful way. Gift boxed and with fast shipping from NJ to Auckland I can't fault this inventive recycled jewelery.
I've always made stuff and wanted to be an artist from the age of 14.I made my way to Art School in the late 80s and graduated with a BFA, majoring in Sculpture. After a short exhibiting career,I quickly discovered being a full time artist doesn't pay the bills, so went the commercial route.
I've worked in graphic design, audio visual and freelance set design as well as garden design and maintenance.In the mid 90s
my boyfriend and I got married at City Hall in Manhattan New York. We eloped actually as no-one knew until we were back home.I have two children, a boy Jasper and a girl Madison,named after Madison Avenue.
