I'll be honest, when we first came up with the name for our business, New Zealand was not on our minds. We were thinking of the best way we could combine our names of Nicole and Zahava. It was actually an homage to my father's former business of NZN Jewelry (Nachum, Zahava and Nicole).
We were a mother daughter team who strived to create our passions. My mother Zahava passed away suddenly in January 2020. We had worked together creating art as early as I can remember, and started our first business together in 2005. We inspired one another on a daily basis and her memory continues to inspire me everyday.
My mother instilled in me passion from the get go. From the age of six she made sure that I had an opportunity to experience it all. From pastels to pottery, horseback riding lessons to ballet; she always made sure I had an opportunity to try new things. She taught me to never stop trying. She made me the woman I am today. My mother is still by my side and continues to push me to create beautiful things. My candle still burns bright knowing she would be proud.
