Ever wondered how your Zenned Out jewelry is made, who’s making it and why we’re doing it? This week I’m taking a break from our regularly scheduled dose of woo woo to give you a behind the scenes look at how your jewelry is made!
Creating a video was a goal of mine this year because I think it’s the best way to capture the magic of what goes on here at the Zenned Out Studio. Why? Because we’re different. The truth is, most jewelry companies of our size have outsourced production to outside manufacturers or makers outside of the country for a lower wage.
My vision for Zenned Out has always been to employee and empower other local women to grow Zenned Out. I’m grateful to say that my vision has unfolded beautifully. We are a small, closely knit team that works very well together and I feel lucky every day I come to work.
Watch this behind the scenes look at the local studio team to get a glimpse of the magic that happens at Zenned Out!
This week is special because we’re also launching a new line of OOAK (one-of-a-kind) pieces. You can shop them here. So much behind the scenes work goes into these OOAK launches, which is why we only have 4-5 a year.
Zenned Out’s lead jeweler, Brittinie, is the soldering Goddess behind our OOAK pieces. Many of our stones used are cut by a local lapidary artist named Kim (stones cut by Kim are noted in the item description). Cassie, Zenned Out’s owner and founder, uses her crystal knowledge and intuition to assign the names and meaning behind each OOAK piece.
Cat is another jeweler at Zenned Out, she works on your custom orders and stock items. Cat also spends lots of facetime with her laptop heading up our wholesale program. Kaela, is the convo queen answering most of your email queries, she also packages and ships all of your products.
I, Cassie, do a bit of everything here including answering emails, making and designing jewelry, running our Instagram account, taking and editing pictures, leading our lovely team, and planning future magic for Zenned Out. We also have a small team of virtual freelancers that keep Zenned Out rocking and rolling behind the scenes. You can read more about our team members on our about page here.
Everything here is truly a team effort. We each have our hands in a bit of everything and help where help is needed. It’s a magical environment that YOU make possible. Your likes, your follows, your purchases, your thank you emails, and kind words of encouragement make Zenned Out possible. YOU give Zenned Out breath, and for that, me and my team are infinitely grateful!

These experiences shaped Cassie and Zenned Out into what they are today by bringing spirituality and astrology into the forefront.
