Personalized Mother's Day Gift Ideas from Aziza Jewelry

If you're like me then every year it becomes more and more difficult to decide what to get for mom for Mother's Day. In fact, I get so stressed out agonizing over what to get and what to do for her that I usually stew about it for weeks and then I forget and then I don't actually get her anything until so last minute that its the day before...or in a couple of cases the day of... Yikes!

Aziza Jewelry was Featured in the Santa Barbara News Press

There are almost too many great things to mention about living in Santa Barbara since I moved here in December...the weather is great, the air is clean, the people are super friendly... but one thing I am particularly excited about is, that I was recently featured in the Santa Barbara News Press!

The Santa Barbara News Press is a local newspaper which covers current events both nationally and internationally, business, sports and lucky for me, it has some fun sections including a "Style" section. Its kind of like this county's version of the LA times.

I still feel like such a newbie (it has only been 3 months since I moved here) but this town has really embraced me and I feel so lucky and blessed! On Presidents Day, February 18th I received a lengthy two-page feature in Santa Barbara's local newspaper. This is especially wonderful news for me because as someone who is new to this area and new to California, I had no idea what the culture here would be like or where to begin getting the word out, so it was especially nice when an editor of the newspaper found me at a recent show where I was exhibiting my wares and reached out to me wanting to feature my jewelry.

The above is just a snapshot of what the article looked like in the Style Section and a small picture of me modeling my jewelry just below the image of the bracelet.

Its been great hearing feedback from many new customers who I have spoken to and new friends who I have met after being featured. In fact, just a week after the feature, I went in to see my new dentist (a seasoned SB News Press Reader) who remarked, "Hey, that was a great article about you in the paper last week" and then he jokingly remarked, "who did you have to pay in order to get that feature?" (I'm still getting used to his sense of humor).

All in all, I'm so thankful and blessed to have gotten that feature and can't wait to see what other wonderful opportunities will occur for me now that I am living in Santa Barbara.

Til next time!

Pre- Valentines Day Show in Santa Barbara!

So, it's been a little over 2 months since I moved to Santa Barbara and so far I'm loving it! I'm still in the exploratory stage so I'm still finding lots of cool places to check out and meeting some really awesome people here as I discover the area and get settled in. In fact, just yesterday on a walk through my neighborhood (downtown in the heart of Santa Barbara) I discovered a well kept almost tropical little park with a huge pond with turtles and ducks...what fun!

Besides finding this cute little park, I'm super excited about my first show coming up here in downtown Santa Barbara. This Saturday I spent most of the afternoon posting up flyers in town blasting our show!

I've been toiling away making some cute new heart themed jewelry and so far the response has been great! Some of my new pieces include work like these sterling silver ruby earrings:

I'm so excited to share my new pieces with you guys. I hope that if you are in the Santa Barbara area and are interested in having a glass of wine and checking out some jewelry for a loved one or for yourself, then definitely stop by! Or even if you dont want to have a glass of wine and just want to check out some lovely jewelry, stop by!
Here are all the details:

Thursday, February 7th at Carr Winery
414 North salsipuedes Street,
in Downton Santa Barbara, California

Oh yea! I forgot to mention, I will also have some lovely new wine themed jewelry for all of you wine lovers, like these wine bottle, cork stopper earrings in 14k gold fill:

Hope to see you there!
