Zdena's Bio...

ZFolio surrounds people’s lives in beauty with contemporary designer jewelry and art glass, photography, wood sculpture, and wearable art. The store environment itself is a work of art. Walking through the door is like stepping into a wonderland of colors and shapes. Zdena, known as Z, and her partner/husband/photographer Michael Mendizza opened their first store in Solvang in 2007 and second in Monterey, 2009.
