You have asked and I answered. So many asked for a bolder plain gold necklace and I finally found the chains to give you just that. What used to be a 3 tier now became a 2 tier necklace with the all new double linked gold chains. I literally wear this necklace with everything. Whether it is a plain t-shirt to give it that rich touch or a night out outfit, these chains will not disappoint. Perfect way to add a glamorous touch to any outfit you want in seconds. Simply throw on this necklace and get ready for endless compliments. Get yours here. You're welcome.
It is so exciting that as we ring in the new year, we also ring in new trends and a new color to celebrate. Thanks to Pantone, the color of the year for 2015 is this earthy wine red as they describe it. Red+wine? That's right! It is like a combination made in heaven so this is our year to shine. So ladies, get ready for some wine colored clothes, shoes and of course jewels.
Stay tuned next week to find out what the other hottest color trends are for 2015! I am excited.
As many of you know, I love fundraising for causes such as Breast Cancer and I am so fortunate that I can combine my two passions into one by hosting a Breast Cancer fundraising party. I am so fortunate for all the family and friends that look forward to this event, now 2nd annual, and help me give to great causes by donating 10% of all purchases to the society. It was a night filled of .great company, even better conversations and of course plenty of jewels. Here are some of the pictures and some of the friends who help me day after day to make it happen.
2014 has been an incredible year for me as I see my handmade line flourish and more of my ideas coming to life. Not only that, but this marks my third major press feature. This time it is Harper's BAZAAR edition and their favorite picks for this Fall/Winter. This features my lapis lazuli teardrop necklace which is one of my favorite creations because it truly reflects my Egyptian heritage.
A huge part of growing a brand is investing in yourself. The same inside voice that motivated me to start this handmade jewelry line roller coaster is the same one that needs constant nourishing to keep me going in hard times.
This past weekend was beyond incredible. I got the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the best in the industry and hear myriads of advice from women and men who are literally at the top of their game thanks to Cosmopolitan magazine's FunFearlessLife event at the Lincoln Center in NYC. Covering anything from what to do from the minute to wake up to what you should do before you fall asleep, this weekend is one for the books and will remember forever.
What stood out to me the most was how humble and amazing Joanna Coles (the editor in chief herself) was narrating this entire thing and how she took the time to try and speak to each one of us. An inspiration to all of us, a definition of what a true leader should be and truly honored to have spent an entire weekend with her. Not only that, but the weekend was filled with a star studded lineup, Maybelline makeovers and my own personal Cosmopolitan cover shoot?! You gotta see this for yourself.
I am super excited for my first sample sale! I have a bunch of designs that I am trying to clear out in order to make room for new ones. All pieces are brand new. I have enough material to make one or two of each so get them while you can. They are priced at 50% off the regular price, perfect to help you build up your jewelry collection or start your holiday shopping early. As always, each piece comes with an airtight bag and in a box ready to be gifted. Look for the Sample Sale banner on my home page or simply type sample sale in the search box to see the selection. Happy Shopping!
One thing I love about being a small jewelry designer, is the time that I get to personally pick out some of the gemstones for my pieces. Recently, throughout my adventures, I came across this amazing, asymmetrical and unique natural amethyst gemstone. With different shades of purple and a bit of brown to add the ultimate twist, this piece is guaranteed to make you stand out. The downfall? There's only one available!
As many of you know, I love to fundraise and give back to causes. Working in the healthcare field and seeing patients suffer everyday, makes me stop and think of how fortunate I am and how many are not. For that reason, I started a tradition called Shop for a Cause where a percentage of your purchase goes toward that specific cause. Last year, I held a Breast Cancer fundraiser and it was such a huge success so I am bringing it back this year.
In honor of October being Breast Cancer month, 10% of all purchases made during this month will go toward the Breast Cancer Society. Not only that, but I also match it so that's double the donation to support this great cause! So help me in fundraising for this great cause by upgrading your jewelry collection or granting someone else's wish.
One of this Fall/Winter's top jewelry trends is chain and especially chunky chain necklaces. As simple as this new necklace looks, it is a vital addition to any girl's jewelry collection. This bold black and gold chain necklace is so versatile. You can dress it up or down and wear it from day to night. My favorite lightweight gold chains wrap around the thick black chain for an easy look that will be sure to radiate endless compliments.
At the House of Zada, I believe that pendant necklaces are timeless pieces and are always in style. This season though, they are really in style. Everyone loved my African jade pendant so much that it sold out. The good news is that I added 2 new colors for all the pendant necklace lovers. One is a lapis blue gemstone pendant with a deep blue/purplish tint. The second is of course turquoise with brownish veins for the perfect embellishment. No matter which one you choose, be sure that it will bring lots of compliments and plenty of feel good vibes. Do you love pendant pieces as much as I do?
