LazyLizardDesigns's Profile

My name is Jeanie Zebrak and I was born in NYC. From the time I was little I enjoyed art. I guess I got that from my dad who also enjoyed working with his hands. I never took art classes in school and never even thought about any kind of art till I was much older and living on my own. At that time I was into sewing and making my own clothes. From there I progressed into intricate embroidery on the clothes I made. As the years progressed I continued to make clothes for myself and my family. At some point my interests changed and I realized that I needed more art in my life and took some jewelry classes at the community college near me. I have to say I was hooked. I loved working with metals and stones. Fabricating was fascinating and lost wax casting was incredible. I did this for a number of years and then, things changed in my life and I found I was drawn to working with metals and semi- precious stone beads. Beadwork was the natural progression for me. There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not in my studio with my hands in my beads. I have been fortunate in my life that I have traveled to many different countries and have been able to purchase many beautiful pieces of ethnic jewelry. I also use these travels to purchase my supplies. I would say my style is elegantly-ethnic, and every piece is made with love. A woman that bought a piece from me recently said that she could feel my soul in it and that’s how I like it.
