Hi! I am Gail Zona. I am a glass jewelry artist and metalsmith specializing in artisan glass and hand-crafted metal. I founded School Joolz™, a line of hand-crafted keepsake jewelry to represent your school, team or sport and recently gJoolz™, a line of personalized and corporate gifts in glass, metal and wood. I enlisted my husband, Bill, for the woodworking piece. We handcraft our pieces in our studios in Amesbury, MA. 

You can see our work on our website, at www.gJoolz.com, and in our studio at 14 Cedar St, #217 in Amesbury. For volume discounts and custom corporate gifts, please contact me at gail@gJoolz.com

-----------------------------------------

A little bit about how it all began.......I started making hand-made items for sale as a 10-year old girl, where I created customized mice finger puppets and other artisan craft items for sale at a local consignment shop.

I turned my creative talents to jewelry in 2005 when I couldn’t find what I wanted in retail shops. A chance flyer in the mail turned me on to lampworking (glass bead making) with a class at Diablo Glass School in Boston. After encouragement from friends and family and some metal-working classes at MetalWerx in Waltham, Gail Zona Jewelry was born in 2008 specializing in glass and sterling statement jewelry.

In the fall of 2012, a friend asked me for a custom order for her daughter’s cheerleading banquet. The jewelry was a big hit and School Joolz ™, was born. Fast forward to the spring of 2018 when a different friend suggested I turn my pretty glass charms into a wine charm gift. Then wine stoppers, then wine coasters, then cheese boards and soon I was pulling in my husband, Bill, to help with the woodworking angle.  gJoolz™ corporate gifts had arrived! 

Here we are working in the studio. I am making glass components and Bill is working on cheese boards from exotic hardwoods.
