Jenny Byrne, Zealandia's creator and lead designer, was born in beautiful New Zealand, a place that still inspires her jewelry designs today. She weaves her initial love of the natural materials found on the beaches and rivers of the world with a deep fascination for spiritual and mythological art, creating the beloved Zealandia Designs jewelry line. Her artistic sensibility grew as she continued to explore the natural world and as each collection was released. Today, Zealandia Designs jewelry is collected and worn worldwide. Jenny hand selects all the fossils, shells, and natural materials for her design concepts.
"The idea of using fossils as old as the petroglyphs and the cultures that inspire me is very exciting. I like my designs to tell stories that honor the wisdom ancient people developed to explain and understand the forces surrounding them. I see early expressions of writing, art, and ritual as having an innate power, and incorporate this into my designs as silent incantations or mantra."
