Celtic, Symbolic, & Aninimal Totem Jewelery
By Willow Zarlow

Willow's Story

I started making jewelry more than 45 years ago, inspired by several ancient works of art that came through Los Angeles, where I was living at the time. I loved the richness and variety of all the old Celtic, Chinese, Russian, Middle Eastern, and African designs, which seemed to touch something important inside me. Motivated to work on my own designs, I felt that I began tapping into other lifetimes that I have lived.

Being a big woman, I related to the goddesses. Animals are a big part of my life, and they showed up in my work. I studied shamanism, world religions and healing methods, which became represented as well. As I worked with the stones and crystals, they began to work with me. I learned how to use them and determine how they interact with and influence the health and well being of the stone’s wearers.

I’ve had fun creating these pieces, and hope that you have fun wearing them. I do custom work as well. Feel free to call me and we will work together in finding what is right for you. If you represent a store I invite you to create a working relationship with me to stock your store with product created in love, that is more than what it appears to be. As they grow with the stones, some customers collect my work – which is ageless and timeless.
