Welcome to Rare Mythos! I'm so glad you're here.
My name is Zoë and I've been a lifelong maker of jewelry! My grandmother taught me when I was a kid, and jewelry has had its grip on me ever since. I entered the jewelry industry after graduating from art school in 2015, working for talented local jewelers in Seattle for several years. After the pandemic left me jobless and somewhat lost, I threw myself headfirst into creating my own jewelry. I had to rediscover designing for myself, crafting alone in my little studio I built in our spare bedroom.
I burned holes in the carpet. I dropped 800 degree blobs of solder on my bare skin. I tumbled my own rocks, found a love for tiffany technique soldering, ceramics, glass, my own personal alchemy. I was surrounded by overwhelming support from my friends.
Of course, because I can never make it too easy for myself, my partner and I decided to pack up our dog, our cat, and our respective vocations and move to San Diego! We landed here in January of 2022, ready for some sunshine and waves and a fresh start. I can't wait to share with you my creations!
