Siska Schippers was born in Amsterdam and worked as a European gold and silversmith before she decided to make handmade resin jewellery, home decor, and gifts under the ZSISKA brand. Siska decided to move to Thailand in the 90s to further study the materials being used. Siska started to work with resin in a studio in Cha-Am, a small town two hours south of Bangkok, where she employed fourteen women. It took several years to get used to the resin; the team learned to master the material through trial and error. The fourteen women with whom Siska started the company still work for ZSISKA today. Most of their family members and children joined the company in a later stage.
ZSISKA jewellery is made of resin and can be combined with other high quality materials such as 24k gold leaf and pure silver leaf. After experiencing with different techniques ZSISKA found a way to make resin as clear as glass and very light in weight. These developed techniques resulted in jewellery that is easy and very pleasantly to wear!
The creative flair and artistic energy of the ZSISKA design team adds the perfect touch to all ZSISKA jewellery and accessories. The inspiration of every collection is found in the wonderful diversity of cultures, art, nature, upcoming fashion trends and colours.
Strong and elegant women wear ZSISKA. Women who know what they want and who stand out in the crowd. Women you notice!
