Get to Know

Zen Creations is handmade freshwater pearl, crystal, glass, gemstone, sterling and fine silver jewelry by Heather Nowell. I have over 20 years experience as a jeweler, and experience with enameling, silver, gold, and platinum. I studied various aspects of jewelry design, fabrication and gemology at FIT in New York and Kutztown University. For 5 years I worked for a Paul Morelli http://www.paulmorelli.com in Philadelphia, PA, where I had the opportunity to work with and learn from some very talented jewelers. Many of the pieces I worked on were featured in movies, tv (Sex & The City) and fashion magazines. After the birth of my daughter, and being diagnosed with a platelet disorder, I decided it was time for a change. I wanted to spend time with my daughter, and still do what I love -- make jewelry. The result --- Zen Creations. My goal is to create jewelry that is well made, fun and most of all, affordable. All items are carefully crafted and made with high quality materials.
