JacobZ NYC is inspired by ZEN gemstones and minerals from the Earth, also known as healing crystals. Ever since discovering them, Zarbailov has tuned into their energy and saw just how precious they are. They are used as a form of healing and as a tool to bring out certain spiritual qualities within ourselves, such as wisdom, luck, health, creativity and many more. Clearly these are gifts to be shared.

Stringing together enchanted pieces, he chooses only the highest quality of gemstones. Then, using Reiki and the Native American tradition of smudging, he cleans and charges the energy of each stone. Every finished piece offers a specific energy to support the wearer in their personal journeys.

Through his company, Zarbailov is supporting organizations which help people with Multiple Sclerosis. One of his closest friends and a great example of a person who has Multiple Sclerosis while giving motivation to others is the well known artist Katia Kull, who was invited to present some of her art during the event. There is little information about the prevention and symptoms of MS. We may never know who has it or how it occurs, but as zarbailov added, “we have to support people with Mulitple Sclerosis and show that artists care about people with Multiple Sclerosis and are able to support their well-being through art.”  20% of revenue will go to the Skladej Foundation.
