Feathers, leaves, hearts, stars and good luck charms all adorn the stunning yet delicate designs in the ChenZ collection. If you like trendy, unique jewelry that portrays a positive love life mantra, then ChenZ Designs is for you. So who’s behind this special new line of jewelry? ChenZ is the brainchild of Chen Zucker, a mother of three and studied artisan from Israel.
With her children all grown, Chen Zucker began to find time for herself once again, so she decided to take the plunge and make her lifelong hobby of jewelry making into a profession. She began designing charm bracelets, both for herself and as gifts for friends, and was just glad to see her work being worn. When friends of friends began to ask for the jewelry, she decided to create her business. She now sells her designs online under the label ChenZ.
Chen believes that the small things around us are what make us the happiest, and is motivated by simple moments that are the inspiration behind her line. A new flower in the garden, having coffee with a friend, and the sun rising are all examples of those little moments that we sometimes neglect – but this is the basis and the philosophy behind ChenZ Designs. She handcrafts all her jewelry in a studio and gathers her ideas while sipping her coffee in the garden.
“A sunny day fills me with joy and the energy to take some photos of new jewels I’ve made. A wintry, wet day sends me to my seat in my studio to create new jewels while listening to the music I love,” recites Chen regarding her daily rituals. She believes all women want to look good and be well-groomed, which is why she strives to make her beautiful jewelry accessible to the everyday woman. She uses high-quality genuine leather cords and silver and gold plated charms, however most of the ChenZ collection is available for under $55.
A curious and inquisitive person by nature, Chen Zucker believes in the importance of education. She has studied the art of jewelry making, both in Peru and in taking a course with a local artist. She enjoys traveling to her suppliers to see when new things come in, and always has a slideshow of charms, colors, and different combinations playing in her head. She spreads all her findings around her in the studio and then begins building the bracelets and necklaces using her eyes and hands to decide which look best together.
Some of Chen’s designs are cross-functional, with one piece able to be worn as a bracelet or a necklace. All of her designs are created with that special ChenZ flair, incorporating values like hope, protection and good luck into her jewelry. Each piece that Chen creates contains at least two good luck charms including the Hamsa to protect from evil eye, hearts for love, feathers to symbolize a free spirit and much more.
