We’re celebrating the Big Chill with an ice cool range of jewels by Zuzy Noy, an Israeli-born Sydney based ‘outsider’ artist. The collection is currently starring in our shop window alongside Gretel Killeen’s self -portrait ‘Coming Out Of Covid Isolation’. Gretel has been painting in isolation and was inspired by our wintery theme to step out from behind her easel and share her vision of emergence with us.

It’s the perfect foil for Zuzy’s quirky work which at times has an epic quality, as if forged for mythical royalty. Zuzy etches many of his jewels with imaginary calligraphy, often using enamel to achieve a tribal effect.

Zuzy came to Australia in 1986 and worked with Ilaria and Angelo Logi in their Paddington studio during the 1990s making exquisite silver puzzles for clients such as Queen Elizabeth 11. He started his own practice in Surry Hills before settling in Bondi.

Zuzy has largely flown under the radar but his signature pieces are now available through our online store or by appointment via jewels@jewelsonqueen.com
