My name is Zarina (aka Z) and I was born and raised in San Francisco. I grew up addicted to Creature Features, a late night TV classic horror extravaganza, which I was luckily allowed to stay up for every weekend even at a very young age. After being scared by zombies, vampires, Godzilla and the like, I would return to my pink bedroom with my o-so-girly canopy bed, frills and Hello Kitty wares and I must have started associating cuteness with monsters, maybe in order to sleep. In any case, that combination surely has led to my need for cute, sexy and hip monsters via my illustrations.

My original jewelry designs are heavily influenced by both Tokyo and Paris with a healthy dose of San Franciscan underground grit. A hoarder of vintage uncirculated beads and components, I live to mix them with modern beauties. A neoteric slant on classical motifs makes me swoon!

'I could tell you my adventures — beginning from this morning,' said Alice a little timidly: 'but it's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.'

Recently, I've started combining my love [cough] obsession, with Alice's Adventures and jewelry design to bring you little beauties crafted by my earnest fingers and dreamy vision.

I've been tumbling down the rabbit hole since I was a wee lass as an artist and as an interior designer for the last 15 years. Now, I am delighted to be a purveyor of beautiful little details.
