Your Jewelry Holiday Gift Guide is Here!

Another holiday season is upon us and we find ourselves asking yet again, what do I get?

I don't know about you but I love getting and wearing different things. Why would you want to look like everyone else anyway. That is why I am a huge fan of smaller shops and handcrafted pieces.

At the House of Zada, each piece is handcrafted just for you or your loved once you place your order and comes ready to be gifted in a gift box.

To make this stressful time of the year a bit easier for you, here's your ultimate guide for what to get each fashionista on your list. You're welcome :)


Meet my new wire-worked collection - Spiral Collection

Did you ever ask yourself what makes you feel powerful? Is it the money, is it the new car, is it the fancy bag? For me, it is my bold jewelry. Since I was very young, that's all I ever wanted and still, all I ever want. They say, give a girl the right heels and she can conquer the world. I will change that and say "give a girl the right jewelry and she can conquer the world." A bold necklace wrapped around your neck for everyone to see as soon as they look at you or an earring swaying as you move to grab attention without the time and effort to create a statement making look. I love it!

As far as I am concerned, no look is ever complete without some jewelry and nothing gives me more confidence and assurance than my colorful and unique jewelry. It is how you make a $5 t-shirt literally look like a million bucks. 

For that reason, I am so proud to introduce you to my new collection. 100% handcrafted and wire worked jewelry by yours truly. It is bold, it is fresh, it is modern yet carries a hint of heritage in each piece linked together by this spiral wirework. The ones who started it all in Ancient Egypt where jewelry literally symbolized and defined wealth, social class and power. 

With all the different variations, there's plenty for everyone to love. Whether you want to show off the bold spiral as part of your earring or the delicate touches on the clasp of your bracelet, you are guaranteed to make a statement. 

Check out the first freshly made pieces here.

Harper's BAZAAR UK Feature

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.

New Handmade Creation: Red Calcite Natural Gemstone Statement Necklace

I was trying a new technique for this week's creation only to realize I don't have all the necessary materials. Very disappointing. The good news is that I just got these stones in and I just wanted to create a piece that is bold yet versatile enough to wear all year round. Voila! This new natural red calcite gemstone necklace is very heavy in statement making with 3 large gemstones hanging from these lightweight gold chains to give off that glam factor. What do you think? Do you see yourself wearing this?

My First Collage!

Because I am dedicated to mastering the handmade jewelry craft, I recently enrolled in a jewelry design course to help me better my current skills and learn new ones of course. One of my first projects was to create an inspirational portfolio that includes anything from texture to colors etc. I am very happy and proud to share my first collage EVER which include all things that inspire me including heritage, colors and favorite clothing brand. How do you like it?

How Do I preserve My Jewelry?

One of the most common questions I get asked is how to care and preserve fashion jewelry.  Whether it is fashion jewelry or pure gold, jewelry care follows many of the same rules. For that same reason, I created an entire page on my site with plenty of helpful tips.  You can find all the answers you need and more under the 'Jewelry Care' tab on my homepage or click here.  So next time you or a friend have a question or two, simply refer them to House of Zada.

New Creation Wednesdays

New creation Wednesdays are back and better than ever. I wanted to make sure I provide the most chunk and twists that I can in my new pieces. This is my latest addition to the line. An extra large african jade green gemstone suspended from double layered thick gold chains with an asymmetrical twist to help you turn heads no matter wherever you go. Right on with the pendant trend for this Spring/Summer 2014. What do you think?

Best Seller Highlight - Rita Necklace

This Rita necklace has been a best seller since the day it was created and this month is no different. The chunk on this piece and the color is guaranteed to make a statement at your next night out. It is also available in a turquoise blue. Get yours today, only 2 are left! Enjoy 20% off your entire purchase until December 31st.

New Creation Wednesdays

This week's creation is the last for 2013. Can't believe how fast this year went. Working on lots of exciting this for the new year led me to this creation. A versatile bracelet that can be stacked with other chain bracelets or bangles to create the ultimate chunk. Combining black Czech glass beads and gold chains creates the perfect timeless piece for this season and many more to come. How do you like it?

Affordable Looks for the Everyday Fashionista

How is it week 3 already of the holiday style guide? Time is flying by so don't let your next outing catch you by surprise and nothing to wear. This peplum top from ASOS is simply amazing. Fashion full of drama yet in a chic and comfortable way does not happen often, but this top brings it all together. You can combine with jeans for added comfort yet undeniable style. You can also wear it with any color skinny pant/jean of your choice. As always, your jewels is the icing to any outfit or else it is not complete. Simply add this Diane chunky gold yet elegant chain and you are ready to go. Do you see yourself wearing this?
