The Austin, Texas company Zahavah Jewelry is celebrating its 15th year with the launch of an all 14K, 18K and 22K line of white and yellow gold and unique stones, diamond, sapphires and, with its signature delicate, organic hand hammered style.
The designer Michelle Laviolette designs each original piece in her Austin, Texas studios.
She began her design career upon graduating with a Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas in Austin, and an Art Education Certification from Southwest Texas State University.
After teaching middle and high school art in Austin, she went on to apprentice with jewelers around the world in countries such as Greece, Turkey, India, France and Italy. The inspirations from the original designs in Zahavah came from the sacred symbols and architecture in these countries, and also from her love for nature and fascination with the mystical.
The pieces in her line are described as delicate, timeless, symbolic Amulets and Talismans. The line includes our popular custom designed jewelry for individual clients, and a wedding collection for men and women. Zahavah can be found in Spas and stores in Austin and around the country such as Miraval, Travaasa, and the award winning Viva Day Spa in Austin.
