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.

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!

DIY bracelet with rivets

DIY bracelet with rivets

Increasing popularity of rivets in jewlery and clothing not necessarily connected to the metal/rock culture was the reason I started to look at rivets differently. I admit it. 🙂 I’m not fashion addict and most certainly do not follow fashion rules for seasons, but I confess that fashion puts things in more appealing perspective to me which I wouldn’t think of otherwise.
But trends irritate me, it’s no fun to wear exactly the same thing as every other girl on the street, plus some of the trends are really ridiculous. So i guess my point of view on fashion and trends is – take what you like and make the most of it. Pretty much like with anything else in life. 🙂
Inspiration for this bracelet came to me from desire to do something with rivets and need. I needed a thin bracelet. But an idea for realisation was set in my mind when I saw on Facebook beautiful, most elegant and extraordinary bracelets and jewerly from Zara Bijoux. Make sure to check them out. 🙂 I will feature creative little hands at my blog in future (especialy jewelry makers), and you can bet Zara Bijoux will be among them. 😉

I had a leftover piece of thin leather strings bought for making another necklace year ago and I ordered rivets from e-Bay for cheap. I’m not sure how much did I pay for them but there’s a link of something like that.

You can see every step in the pictures. To be honest, I had no idea that this would turn out to be such pain in the *** 😀 It tested my patience because strings keep falling out and rivets were not in straight line. I re-did probably half of them ’till I got it the way i wanted.

Step no.2

Awesome fact: I didn’t know how will the bracelet end, how will I button it up. Yeah, now the word reveals it, but only in english. 😉 I have a stash of buttons, not as much as I used to have, but I still save them when I buy something new. So, the small green one was my button of choice :D, and I kinda figured out in minutes how I’m gonna do the ends of a bracelet.

And here it is. First, but not the last bracelet with rivets. 🙂
