Ozma (Autonomy) is a story in a world of its own- fabricated by tales of courage, fear, & morality. It is not just a label but a bundle of creations that tie into one another. Society is a harsh reality where playing pretend & making ends meet are often perverse expectations. The notion of autonomy is to inspire all of us to live up to our dreams while finding sustainable happiness in doing so. Ozma brings you odd realities through images, transmuted adornments- fearlessly reminding us of a place where dreams & bitter truths can coexist, peacefully.
Each item has a story to tell & all materials are (to the best of ability) committed to being sustainable, recycled, ethically & locally sourced. Thriving to reuse materials as well as support small businesses Ozma is run & operated on an intimate scale most often in Brooklyn, NY.
Ozma (autonomy) was conceived in 2012 as a response to the film Return to Oz. Founded by Samantha J, who was born & raised in the Penna Dutch region where she began exploring her creative ailments. First through photography then followed by the intricate fascinations of jewelry design, together her love for both mediums support one & other.

THANK YOU SO MUCH High Maitienance !!!!
Still in awe. I couldn’t have even made up what just happened to me. It’s intricate, so ideal- I’m in shock. Left for a trip across country with the intent of a situation getting better between myself and another by either delving in or finalizing the thoughts of being alone. Upon getting to my final destination everything changed. Like I said, I couldn’t have imagined what followed. I never expected or even considered this but everything flowed and nothing has made more sense to me more than this.
I met someone who has reassured me and my part in the world. I met someone who I can be completely okay with or with out. The best part is that I miss them. The needs, wants, desires, ambition, adventure, and every little last key is there- down to tiny things like loving Ben Kweller from a long gone past and being psyched on the same things, having the right balance of tenderness and yet being hardened and aware of what troubles the world can hand us. I care about another person with out feeling drained or exhausted. WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING?!
I am in love. I’ve seen parts of the world I wouldn’t have seen with out this person, I was given the time to see things and appreciate them. Everything is falling into place and for the best. I just hope I’ve earned this the right way, I hope its always as real as it feels now.
