Interview: ZARA’S BIJOUX

This interview is the second one of my project of presenting young and talented people who make jewelry. It is bilingual what makes it unique here at my blog. First part is on Croatian and second on English.

Ovaj intervju je drugi u mom projektu predstavljanja talentiranih mladih ljudi koji izrađuju nakit. Prvi dio je na hrvatskom, a drugi na engleskom.

Iza imena “Zara’s Bijoux” krije se skromna i divna žena Dajana koja izrađuje predivne narukvice koje su već osvojile mnoga srca i fanove. Možete ju naći ovdje: ZARA’S BIJOUX. A ja sam Sretna jer donosim na blog naš intervju. ❤

Lijep pozdrav Dajana! Reci nam slobodno nešto o sebi i čime se baviš kad ne izrađuješ nakit?

Lijep pozdrav i tebi. 🙂 Ja sam supruga,majka trogodišnjeg sinčića,pa prema tome se može pretpostaviti što radim kad ne izrađujem nakit. 🙂 Inače,svaki višak vremena provodim izrađujući narukvice.

Ima li ime “Zara’s Bijoux” neko posebno značenje i kako si došla do njega? 

„Zara“ mi je omiljeni brend u kojem se i inače oblačim,pa mi je to prvo palo na pamet u potrazi za imenom svoga nakita.

Kad bi trebala objasniti u jednoj rečenici kakav je nakit “Zara’s Bijoux”, kako bi ona glasila?

„Zara’s Bijoux“ nakit je urban i moderan,ali mi je drago što se sve dobne skupine interesiraju za njega.

Kako je sve počelo?

Počelo je tako što sam kupila zakovice u nadi kako ću ukrasiti neke stare odjevne predmete,ali je otišlo u sasvim drugom smjeru.Izradila sam par komada narukvica s onim što sam imala kod kuće, stavila na Facebook i tako je krenulo.

Imaš li narukvicu koja nosi titulu tebi najdraže?

Imam više njih koje su mi najdraže. Najviše volim zlato, pa narukvice koje su takve, možda u kombinaciji sa lancem su mi i najdraže. Osobno volim one koje su manje upadljive.

598464_379806222107289_744247617_nČemu se nadaš u budućnosti vezano za izradu nakita i “Zaru Bijoux”?

Iskreno, nemam neka prevelika očekivanja i snove. Neka ide sve svojim tijekom. Uživam u ovome što radim, a kad se dogodi neka lijepa suradnja (kao ova s tobom 🙂 ) ili poslovna ponuda, to mi je samo potvrda kako ono što radim ide u pravome smjeru.

Hvala ti Dajana za divan intervju i želim ti sve najbolje u budućnosti sa tvojim predivnim narukvicama! 🙂

Behind the name of “Zara’s Bijoux” is a modest and amazing women named Dajana who makes such lovely bracelets with which she won over many hearts and fans. You can find here here: ZARA’S BIJOUX. And I am happy to bring your our interview. ❤

Hi Dajana! Tell us something about yourself and what do you do when you’re not making amazing jewelry?

Hi to you too. 🙂 I am a wife and a mother of a three year old boy, so you can assume what I do when I’m not making jewelry. 🙂 But, every spare moment I have I spend making bracelets.

Does the name “Zara’s Bijoux” has any special meaning and how did that name occur to you?

Well, “Zara” is my favorite brand and I shop there frequently so that was the name I first thought of when naming my own jewelry.

When you would have to explain what kind of a jewelry is under the name “Zara’s Bijoux” in one sentence, what would it be?

“Zara’s Bijoux” jewelry is urban and modern, but I’m also glad every age group is interested in it.

How it all begun?

It begun when I bought rivets hoping to decorate some old clothes, but it went in completely other direction. I made a couple of bracelets with what I had at home, put it on the Facebook and that’s how it all started.

Do you have a bracelet who carries a title of your favorite?

I have more than one bracelet whom I consider to be my favorite. I prefer gold, so golden bracelets maybe combined with chain are my favorites. Personally, I like the ones that are less flashy.

What are your hopes in the future with making jewelry and Zara’s Bijoux?

To be honest, I don’t have big expectations and dreams. I let everything go its own pase. I enjoy with what I do, and when some great cooperation happens (like this one with you 🙂 ) or business proposition, that is just a verification that what I do is going in the right direction.

Thank you Dajana for the lovely interview and I wish you all the best with your amazing bracelets!

Meditation for the entire planet, all is ONE :)

I thought I was late… It turns out I am not. 😀 I joined in The master shift meditation early this year but missed the meditation for my hemisphere (east). But! I calculated the time zones and even tho I didn’t catch the first meditation (these are done twice, one time for each hemisphere) I will catch the second in about an hour… Weeee :mrgreen:

This project caught my interest last year when I discovered it on Facebook and join the universal meditation. It was truly incredible experience, knowing that in that very moment, hundreds, thousands, or maybe even millions of people are doing absolutely the same… Amazing. I got the sense of whole and many small dots representing humans creating big impact through love and peaceful energy.

So, I am waiting till 9:30 PM local time in New York which will be 3:30 AM here in Croatia, but I am not too tired. 😉

Enjoy… You can of course listen this when ever you want to, it is just more special to do it with others because of that sense that you are all listening to the same voice at the same moment and doing the same things and thinking about same thoughts as if we are one. 🙂 Lovely!

The last year meditation is HERE.

Faces of Facebook

Faces of Facebook

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a TV with no signal?

Noup… It is all the faces of Facebook. Yes, you heard me. ALL of the profiles on Facebook here. In one image. 💡

Not only the concept alone is awesome, but you can click and get a closer look. In theory you can find your profile, but in reality… good luck. 😀

There is more than 1 billion and 200 thousand profiles. 1,278,842,363 profiles to be precise. 😉 Follow the link: THE FACES OF FACEBOOK

The Strangers Project

The Strangers Project

Hey everyone! I wanted to share this absolutely amazing project with you! I had in plan to write about it, but not today. Seems that YES today. 😀 Because of a very specific reason…

I have been following this project called The Strangers Projects for months but I haven’t been on the page for quite long, just to find out two days ago that they succeeded in funding the first ever International Strangers Day and it is – tomorrow, August, 24. 🙂

What is The Strangers Project you ask me? 🙂

It’s cool idea of collecting strangers stories on the street. Everyone who wants to participate gets a paper and a pen and can write whatever they want., resulting in so many life intimate stories and even secrets shared with anyone who is willing to read them. And the founder of The Strangers Project, Brandon Doman, sure is. He’s been stacking stories and after tomorrow he’ll have a lot more to read. 🙂 Link to the website – HERE, link to the Facebook page – HERE.

Brandon in New York City, collecting stories.

Although unfortunately Croatia isn’t registered in International Day this year, I’m hoping it will be the case next year because the idea itself inspires me. And if it won’t, well I’ll just have to do something about it. 😉 You can see registered places here: http://internationalstoryday.com/
