What I'm Most Excited about in 2015

2015 is here and I've already begun a few small changes here at Aziza Jewelry. I know I mentioned this previously, but I'm still working on a rebrand is underway! There are so many things I'm excited about in 2015 but I'll just mention a few here for the sake of time and space.

Part of why I moved to Santa Barbara 2 years ago (I can't even believe I have been here for 2 years already!!) is because I love the beach and wanted to be able to go to the beach year round which wasn't a possibility when I lived in NYC.  I love the overall calm I feel near the water, the smell of the ocean air and the crash of the waves.

We are especially lucky here in Santa Barbara because often times when I visit I am blessed to see dolphins swimming near the shore!


Not only do I love the beach, I really enjoy beach themed everything from drinking glasses, to home decor, clothes, you name it! And of course jewelry- so in 2015, I'm introducing more beach themed jewelry into my brand.

Naturally Santa Barbara is a huge wedding destination and since it is a beach town, I also have quite a few beach wedding themed jewelry pieces in my shop.

I'm also re-introducing my flame work glass pendants back into my shop with lots of new heart necklaces just in time for Valentines Day!

Lately I also have wanderlust. I am itching to travel this year since I didn't travel at all in 2014- although I'm not sure where to or when yet. I am always looking for new places to explore... What about you? Do you have wanderlust? Where are you planning to travel to this year?

Well thats all for now. There's much much more that I'm excited about for the coming year so stay tuned!

Aziza Jewelry featured in a Book

A little unknown fact about me: towards the end of 2012 when I was still living in Brooklyn, NY just before I moved to sunny Santa Barbara, CA, I was contacted to be a featured writer in an amazing book called "You Make a Difference" along with several other amazing authors and entrepreneurs... like NY Times Best Selling author Janet Bray Attwood, and Best selling author Barbara De Angelis.

Needless to say I was absolutely honored when my mentor Keith Leon said he wanted me to share my transformation-to-become-an-entrepreneur story among some other really amazing entrepreneurs. After I received my copy and read some of their stories, I was truly inspired, even more than ever to continue my journey to grow and develop myself as an entrepreneur and as a person who wants to contribute beauty and happiness to the world through my jewelry, and as someone who wants to grow and learn and contribute to the world in general.

Which is why I want to share this book with you...

And I also want to share this book with you if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, already an entrepreneur or if you just want to read some really great inspirational stories.

So, I'm giving away free copies of this book. Yes, I said FREE! I only have a few copies of these books available on hand so it's first come first served, but if you are interested, please contact me ASAP to let me know you would like a copy. If you prefer to purchase a copy, the publisher is selling them on Amazon brand new for about $16 each but I am offering a copy for free!

Whats the catch you ask?? There is NO catch! 

So if you want a free copy, send me an email at: to get your free copy. If you live in Santa Barbara or in the Santa Barbara area, contact me to arrange for your free pick up and if you live elsewhere and would like a copy shipped to you, all I ask is that you pay $7 for shipping and I will gladly ship it to you anywhere worldwide. Yes, worldwide! Whether its to Kentucky or Kosovo :) 

Talk to you all soon!
