Archetype Z Studio

Alia Hasan recently launched her jewelry line Archetype Z Studio after getting architecture degrees from Berkeley and UCLA.

Alia’s interest in smaller scale design led her to create jewelry with a modern architectural influence that is accessible to everyone. She liked the idea that in jewelry design you can create numerous designs for the masses whereas one design in architecture can take years to develop and it is only for one client. She uses 3D printing and laser cutting to create her pieces as well as making some pieces entirely by hand.

Her jewelry can be purchased via her Etsy shop.
