Zor-shop-boutique-antique-new-design-parisLocal Authentic Parisian Jewelry

Ablaze with color and zest, the tantalizing window display of Zor Creations challenges anyone to walk past this Parisian jewelry shop without stopping in. I was rushing to a massage appointment in the 2nd arrondissement when I first spotted the Zor storefront. Immediately after my session, I dashed out onto the street and found my way back to this dazzling shop to see what it was all about.

Crossing the threshold was like jumping into a kaleidoscope. Every angle of the store is coated with funky jewelry composed of metals, semi-precious stones and enamels as well as creative accessories like handbags and silk flowers, household decorative items, and cheerful clothing of sundresses and fanciful scarves. The right side of the store is dominated by ethnic themes, both traditional and modern, while the left is a more romantic style. In the back corner, a second brand marked Sébicotane parades enameled jewelry with feminine shapes and soft colors.

Amid the whirlwind of pigment, I was struck by the immediate notion that a truly talented master was behind it all. Greeting me from her workshop in the back of the store, Stephanie Lagier revealed that every piece within the store was her own creation.

The arrangement of jewelry in wooden wardrobes and articles strewn over bedside tables gave the store a homey feeling, complemented by the artist’s personable nature and charisma. Stephanie so accurately captured my impression upon first entering the shop in sharing that customers often liken it to their grandmother’s attic. Behind the displays, a workshop runs along the back wall of the store.

Zor Creations is an artisan boutique the sole artist creates all the designs and singlehandedly makes nearly every piece from start to finish. She brings together a variety of textures and materials, including enamel, ceramic, glass, sterling silver, vermeil, bronze, resins, feathers, wax (for lost-wax casting), and semi-precious stones such as amethyst, carnelian, peridot, and moonstone. A graduate of architecture and design, Stephanie is self-taught in the art of creating jewelry, clothing and accessories. She also learned welding by hunting down willing instructors with enough time and space to impart their knowledge upon her, which she recounts was not an easy feat in Paris.

After carefully selecting the raw materials, such as semi-precious stones from India and Thailand and crystals from Swarovski, the artisan keeps the rest of the process within Paris. Her best friend assists with sales and filling orders, and her mother does the administrative tasks. Any aspect of the production which Stephanie deems too grand for own two hands and workspace (a rare occurrence) is made in a partner workshop nearby using the artisan’s original model. That is, the only tasks performed outside of Zor Creations are for gold-plating, silver-plating, antique bronzing, as well as enormous orders from customers like Estee Lauder, Amnesty International, and natural history museums in France.

The artist’s different collections, from “Gourmande” and “Tunis” to “Sauvage” and “Crazy Maggy”, can be viewed in store and on the website. As an artisan boutique, Zor Creations sells retail and wholesale prices, so discounts of 20-50% can be found all year long. With these straight-from-the-workshop prices, jewelry starts at 10 euros and smaller accessories, such as hairpins and silk flowers, at just 1 or 2 euros. As for ultra classy pieces for dressy evenings, prices span all the way from 2 to 950 euros. If you are looking for an item apart from this selection, Zor Creations also makes custom orders for businesses and individual customers. And given Stephanie Lagier’s talents, you will be tempted to place an order.
