Elisabeth Paradon began designing in the early eighties.
Her creations in silver, gold and semi-precious stones, entirely hand worked, utilise an exclusive technique, developed through the experience acquired during many years travelling and working in different lands.
The dramatic and magnificent landscape of Egypt with its mystical tones was where Elisabeth first found the ideal conditions to express herself and produce her jewellery. A far cry from France her native country and the traditional art of the goldsmith.
Her hand worked creations, made with silver and natural gemstones, utilise an exclusive technique developed through years of experience, acquired during a lifetime of traveling, working and living in different lands.
Her designs aroused the interest of collectors around the world. In Milan and Paris Elisabeth collaborated with important Maisons, such as Lacroix, Missoni, and Studio Mendini, for Swatch.
Her creations captured the eyes of many, including royalty – Queen Rania of Jordan looked absolutely stunning in her Ziio necklace.
Targeting the fashion industry, she began creating highly sophisticated models with always more precious materials, attracting the curiosity of jewellers worldwide, who were surprised to find such out-of-the-ordinary pieces in high-end jewellery boutiques.
For the first time women were able to find a collection with such a vast range of colours, shapes and styles, breaking the classical schemes of mainstream goldsmith creations.
Synthesising aesthetic cultures of ageless traditions, Ziio Jewels express an ancient soul that reflect the manual ability of skilful craftsmanship and guarantee a timeless elegance that goes beyond all boundaries.
