About our family
I'll be honest when we came up with the name New Zealand was not on our mind. We were thinking of the best way to combine our names of Nicole and Zahava. Honestly it was more of an homage to my father's late business of NZN Jewelry; Nachum, Zahava and Nicole. My sister came after the business name had already been established. So the NZ is just the first initials of our name.
We were a mother daughter team who strived to create our passion. My mother Zahava passed away suddenly in January 2020. We had work together creating art as early as I can remember and started our first business together in 2005. We inspired each other and I continue to think of her everyday.
My mother instilled in me passion from the get go. From the age of six she made sure that I got an opportunity to experience it all. From pastels, to pottery, horseback riding lessons to ballet. She always wanted to make sure I had an opportunity to try new things. She taught me to never stop trying and 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.
