It was such a treat to have Jeffrey Levin, the artist behind our Jeffrey Levin for Zobha jewelry collection, in our new store in Mill Valley this month. As we’ve articulated in past blogs, the coming together of two artists is really a beautiful thing and at Zobha we are so happy to celebrate this collaboration within the Zobha community.
Jeffrey was in the Zobha Mill Valley store for 2 days showcasing his full collection and exposing the Zobha community to even more of his beautiful styles and unique handmade jewelry pieces. The reaction from the community was everything we hoped for. People were able to speak with Jeffrey directly and hear the story behind how he created special pieces.
All of Jeffrey’s jewelry is handmade from precious metals and inspired by unique and beautiful things that Jeffrey has encountered. A few of my favorite pieces will forever stand out in mind because of the story behind them.
This piece comes from the Jeffrey Levin NDU line, which is a collection inspired by Jeffrey’s South African heritage. This particular piece is from the Coming of Age collection and signifies the right of passage that boys go through in South Africa when they become young men. When you’re looking at the collection and hearing Jeffrey talk about the ritual you can feel the history and influence behind each piece.
Another favorite of mine, was the Roset Pendants. At first glance it may seem like a relatively simple piece but hearing the amount of time Jeffrey spent molding each rose petal perfectly really gives you an appreciation for the attention to detail, care and craftsmanship that goes into every piece he creates.
The best part was, if you couldn’t decide which piece you liked most at the trunk show, Jeffrey found a way to make something special and unique just for you, so a few lucky customers went home with custom, one-of-a-kind pieces! He is an amazing artist. A great friend. And an inspiring individual.
I hope you can join us the next time Jeffrey joins us in Mill Valley. Follow us on Facebook for information on upcoming events.
